Snedeker Helps East Defeat West in All-Star Matches 5/26/03

STILLWATER, Okla. -Vanderbilt's Brandt Snedeker won both his singles and doubles matches as the East team defeated the West, 17-10, in the East vs. West All-Star Matches at the NCAA Championship.

Snedeker, participating in his second consecutive NCAA Championship, defeated Southern California's David Oh, 2-up, in his singles match. The senior from Nashville, Tenn., then teamed with Minnesota's Wilhelm Schauman to win, 2 and 1, in their doubles match against Oh and Texas' J.J. Wall.

The East squad claimed 11 of the 18 singles matches and five of the nine four-ball matches.

The East vs. West competition consisted of 18 singles and four-ball matches at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, Okla., in conjunction with the 2003 Division I Men's Golf Championship. Each match was worth one point for the winning team with halved matches earning one-half point for each side.

Snedeker and the rest of the Commodores now turn their attention toward the school's first ever appearance in the NCAA Championship. Vanderbilt begins its run to the national title Tuesday with the first of four rounds.
