Brandt Snedeker didn't have to take a back seat to anyone at Pebble Beach.

A runner-up to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson the last two weeks, Snedeker finished off a command performance Sunday with a 7-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Chris Kirk in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Snedeker tapped in for par on the 18th hole to finish at 19-under 267, setting the tournament record at Pebble Beach.

In five starts this year, Snedeker already has a win, two second-place finishes and a third. The win takes him to a career-best No. 4 in the world.

Kirk closed with a 64, though he never got closer than two shots. James Hahn, tied with Snedeker to start the final round, had a 68 and tied for third.
