Brendan Steele goes back-to-back at Safeway Open

Brendan Steele goes back-to-back at Safeway Open

"And then I had a good putting day as well, so you put that together and it's going to be pretty good". He won by two over Tony Finau, who had a 69 and was at 13-under 275.

"This place is so great for me", said Steele. For the shortened week, he carded seven birdies against nine bogeys and a double.

Thomas had a tour-best five victories, won his first major at the PGA Championship, set the tour's 72-hole scoring record and captured the FedEx Cup.

"Those are the only people I know that have had such success in one season multiple times, and they've had to deal with resetting their goals and re-evaluating", he said.

"I'm getting pretty spoiled winning the first event of the year twice", said Steele, the 34-year-old from the Southern California mountain town of Idyllwild.

Hadley finished 12 strokes under par, tied with Phil Mickleson.

“I played really well the whole day, ” said Hoge, whose PGA Tour career best is a tie for fourth in August at the Barracuda Open.

Weekend weather: Highs in the 60s, with showers possible
The remnants of Nate are expected to be over the Mid-Atlantic States Monday night while a cold front approaches the Southeast. As that high slides to our north, it will push down cooler air, so we'll get highs in the mid 70s on Wednesday .

Duncan, making his second career PGA Tour start, had an erratic round.

Hadley raced to the turn in 30 and the possibility of a sub 60 round began to look even more likely when he birdied four of his first six holes on the way in but he missed the green at the 17th then missed the fairway at the last but his brilliant round has him nicely placed.

Xander Schauffele, whose two victories this season included the Tour Championship, was voted the rookie of the year.

Starting the final round in third place, the American rallied on the front nine, not dropping a single shot and claiming three birdies by the halfway mark.

Back-to-back birdies on the ninth and 10th were cancelled out by dropped shots on both the eighth and 15th. "It was fun to be in the mix, it was fun to have a chance". I enjoy that challenge. "This course played totally different with the firm greens and the wind and some of the high pin placements today were tough to get to". Emiliano Grillo (68) of Argentina, the victor in 2015, was tied for fifth place with Canada's Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under par.

Duncan is now 9/2 joint favourite alongside Chesson Hadley, who shot 70 to move within a stroke of the lead.
