The 32-year-old, who won the Canadian Open two weeks ago, had four top-three finishes in his first five events of the season, which also included his only other title this year - the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February.
However, a rib injury saw him out of action for five weeks and, since returning, he has seen opportunities at slip at The Masters and the US Open, while a promising start to the Open Championship was spoiled by a 79 on day two.
Despite that, Snedeker feels that he is beginning to recapture his scintillating early-season form.
"I feel really good about my game coming into this week, I feel good about having a better idea of what it takes to win [a Major]," Snedeker told Reuters.
"I feel like I am playing like I was at the beginning of the year. I feel like I am close to playing some great golf. I am a lot more relaxed now and I'm a lot more into the process and realising that a lot more goes into winning Majors than just hitting the golf ball good.
"You've got to do a lot. You have to think well, you have to hit the ball in the right spots, you've got to get up and down when you need to, that kind of stuff."
