Brendan Steele retains Safeway Open title with two-shot victory

Safeway Open- Round One

Although that only ranked 26th, he was particularly effective on Sunday, posting a 1.717 strokes-gained mark, including crucial two-putts on 16 and 17 (the former for birdie to bring his cushion to two strokes) before knocking in a three-footer for birdie at the last for the clincher.

Brendan Steele rallied in windy conditions to successfully defend his title at the Safeway Open in California on Sunday and become the tournament's first repeat victor. Steele went on to birdie the 16th and 18th holes, with the latter sewing up his third PGA Tour victory.

Chez Reavie, Lucas Glover, Jamie Lovemark and Argentina's Emiliano Grillo are tied for fourth at 67. The winds blew out of the north - unusual for this area - at up to 25 miles per hour, creating an added challenge with driving, approach shots, the short game and controlling the ball on the par-72 course that measures 7,166 yards. "I hit a lot of good shots, rolled and a lot of good putts and was able to watch Chesson go insane".

Mickelson, playing in his 91st PGA Tour event since his last win, finished eighth in the tournament past year and has six straight rounds in the 60s at Silverado.

Steele made birdies on Nos. "I knew the weather was going to be windy and it seems Sunday is always the hardest day on the PGA Tour for whatever reason".

Miami beats Florida State with game-winning TD
Bryant did not re-enter the game as Clemson (6-0, 4-0) beat the Demon Deacons (4-2, 1-2) for a ninth consecutive time. Delaney, who jumped in front of a ball thrown deep for receiver Nyquan Murray, gave Miami the ball at the FSU 47.

"A little bit of everything worked for me today", Steele told reporters.

"I'm not hitting it perfectly straight right now but (still) finding a way to get the job done right now", he said.

Phil Mickelson, the 42-time PGA Tour victor beginning his 27th PGA Tour season, birdied the 18th from 7 feet for a 69. Hadley ended up parring 18 to shoot 73 and tie for third at 12 under. This will definitely set up my season and hopefully springboard me into another really good year.

Brendan Steele is the Safeway Open champion! Tyler Duncan, who led the event after the third round, finished tied for fifth with Graham DeLaet at 11-under par.

The last PGA Tour title won by Mickelson was back in 2013, the same year he won both the US Open and The Open Championship. He nailed just about each one except for finishing in the top 10 at half of his PGA Tour events.
