Brendan Steele retains Safeway Open title with two-shot victory

Safeway Open caddie J.J. Jakovac

But a blistering finish, which included three birdies and an eagle in his last five holes, saw him snatch a late lead off the defending champion Brendan Steele.

"It's insane, it's nothing I could have ever dreamed of", Duncan said. "I really have been working hard on not letting myself get down when things don't go right, and it can be something small that puts me kind of emotionally down". It's something I've dreamed about for a long time. I just took advantage of some opportunities.

Steele also had a bogey in his round, but he countered that with six birdies.

"It is so hard to win out here and you really have to be on your game, you really have to stay focused", said Steele, who is from Idyllwild, Calif. (Riverside County). "I hit a lot of good shots ... and a lot of good putts and was able to watch Chesson go insane".

Steele ended the week two shots clear of Tony Finau with Phil Mickelson and Chesson Hadley tied for third. His previous career best was a 64 in the opening round of the 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.


Matt Jones was the lone Australian to make the weekend in Napa after securing his PGA Tour card through the Web.com Tour playoffs just a week ago, finishing in a tie for 43 after a disappointing final round 77. "And then I finally got that call, and it just kind of sunk in".

Four players are at five-under including Lucas Glover and Argentina's Emiliano Grillo. "It propelled me to my best season yet". Thomas made the choice easy when he closed with a 66 at East Lake to finish one shot behind in the Tour Championship, which allowed him to win the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. He made a short birdie putt on the 18th. Finau then got in at 13 under with a closing birdie, but Steele finished par-birdie to post at 15 under.

"A low round is out there", said Mickelson, who birdied three straight holes after double-bogeying the 14th - his fifth hole of the day. "I feel so comfortable here and it's been a great run".

On Friday, almost five months to the day since his champagne-soaked celebration in Texas, Daly achieved another major milestone: he made his first PGA Tour cut since 2015.
