LYTHAM St. ANNES, England (AP) — The last time Brandt Snedeker had this kind of a round when it really mattered, he sobbed into a towel after blowing his chance at a green jacket at the Masters.

He finished this time with a smile on his face, still in the hunt in the British Open after refusing to let another wayward round get away from him like it did four years ago at Augusta National.

Two birdies in the final three holes can do a lot for a guy’s frame of mind. And Snedeker’s was greatly improved after his 3-over 73 got him a date playing with Tiger Woods in the final round, four shots out of the lead held by Adam Scott.
