Brandt Snedeker brings Ryder Cup Trophy to Vanderbilt game

  Vanderbilt alumnus Brandt Snedeker threw out the first pitch at Sunday's baseball game.

The Ryder Cup Trophy continued its tour of Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday afternoon, with PGA golfer Brandt Snedeker bringing the hardware to Vanderbilt's baseball game.

Snedeker, a Commodores alumnus and former All-American golfer, brought the trophy to Vanderbilt's Hawkins Field for Sunday's matinee with Missouri. Here, the Commodores got to pose for pictures with the trophy, and Snedeker threw out the first pitch prior to Vanderbilt's 14-5 victory.

Snedeker's appearance at Vanderbilt Sunday capped an eventful trip back to Nashville. He also brought the trophy along to a Nashville Predators playoff game and to meet Luke Bryan and Rascal Flatts.

The Ryder Cup is a team competition held every two years between some of the best American and European golfers the PGA has to offer. The United States won this past summer's event for the first time since 2008 with the group of Snedeker, Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes, Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson, Ryan Moore, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker.

The Ryder Cup Trophy has made the rounds this year to top college football games and other high-profile events nationwide.
