Must Read

I really enjoyed reading the recap of Brandt Snedeker's win at Pebble. Here's his playing partner, James Hahn, on playing with Snedeker:

I learned that he is a better guy than he is a golfer. The dude is world class. He's obviously one of the best, if not the best golfer right now, and possibly for the last year. But how he conducts himself as a person on an off the golf course, that's also world class. He deserved to win today. ... I'm sure if you ask him, it was never a doubt that he was going to win the golf tournament. (AP)
