Brendan Steele successfully defends Safeway Open title

Brendan Steele successfully defends Safeway Open title

Hadley birdied two of his last three holes Sunday to join Mickelson at 12 under.

PGA Tour rookie Tyler Duncan parred the 18th hole for a scrambling 1-under 71 to maintain a one-stroke lead Saturday after three rounds of the Safeway Open. Steele went on to birdie the 16th and 18th holes, with the latter sewing up his third PGA Tour victory.

Lucas Glover, Chez Reavie, Emiliano Grillo and Jamie Lovemark were two shots back at 67.

However, his surprising display at the par-5 16th at the Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course, provided a hilarious moment for those watching. "And then I had a good putting day as well, so you put that together and it's going to be pretty good".

Brendan Steele won the tournament at 15-under, while Tony Finau finished at minus-13. The putt that Steele said was "huge", however, was the seven-foot, six-inch putt for bogey on No. 14. Like Steele, Finau shot a 3-under 69 on Sunday.

"Feels pretty good, first on the FedEx Cup at least for a week", Steele said after the win.

"I'm not hitting it perfectly straight right now but (still) finding a way to get the job done right now", he said. This will definitely set up my season and hopefully springboard me into another really good year.

"It was really a solid day, very similar to yesterday", Steele said, according to the Register. It's his third career victory on the PGA Tour.

The Safeway Open is the first of 45 events in the 2017-18 PGA Tour season.

Brendan Steele is a warm 11/4 favourite for his second Safeway Open title in as many years after a second round of 67 left him one shot off the lead at the halfway point. Emiliano Grillo (68) of Argentina, the victor in 2015, was tied for fifth place with Canada's Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under par.

Phil Mickleson, 42 time PGA Tour victor, ended the day tied for 12th place with a three-under round of 69 and is 20/1 for the title. For the shortened week, he carded seven birdies against nine bogeys and a double.

After a bogey on the second hole, Mickelson birdied five of his last six holes on the front nine to move to 11 under and within two shots of the lead.

Phil Mickelson, seeking his first win in since 2013, shot his second 69 to reach 6 under. Daly had missed the cuts in his past 12 PGA Tour events.
