The American golfer Brandt Snedeker finally reaped some reward for his strong early form on the PGA Tour this year easing to a two shot win at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in California.

Runner-up behind Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in his two previous starts on the U.S. circuit, the world number six finished with a seven-under-par 65 to post a tournament record low of 19-under par.

Countryman Chris Kirk was second.

It was Snedeker's fifth career victory on the PGA Tour and his second in his last six starts.
