Maybe your wife is right. You may not need those shiny new clubs. Brandt Snedeker didn’t…
By now, you know that Snedeker cruised to victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last week. By now you also know it was his second win at the event and that it secured him a spot in the Masters a few weeks from now.
What you may not know is that Sneds did all this using clubs that you’re 23-handicap buddy probably still has in his bag.
Put aside the fact that his irons are “well-used” and Snedeker’s bag still features some genuine artifacts by today’s standards. His Odyssey White Hot XG Rossie putter was first put into play by Sneds in 2006 while he was on the Web.com Tour. His driver, ancient in this era of more speed and adjustable heads, is a 2010 TaylorMade Burner SuperFast.
“I don’t like changing equipment,” Snedeker said Sunday. “I like to keep the variables to a minimum, so I know that it’s me that’s messing up and not the clubs. It works better that way.”
I guess not — and I guess it does.
For ha-ha’s, Mike Johnson, Senior Editor of Equipment at Golf World, looked into what the trade-in value would be on Sneds sticks and found a trip to the local pro shop to trade them in would net the seven-time PGA Tour winner a whopping $34.
Brandt Snedeker is going to win $1m+ with a driver and putter with a COMBINED trade-in value of $34 according to @PGA_com Value Guide.

After being told this, Snedeker (maybe) joked, “If you see any more, I’m willing to buy them for that.”
