Tyler Duncan eagles 18th to grab one-shot lead at Safeway Open

But he rallied to card a six-under round of 66 with three birdies and an eagle in his last five holes to sit at 13 under and is 7/1 - alongside Chesson Hadley and Tony Finau.

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.

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.

Emiliano Grillo of Argentina and Graham DeLaet of Canada are at 11-under. 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 was hitting great shots, good putts and got some good breaks". Finau then got in at 13 under with a closing birdie, but Steele finished par-birdie to post at 15 under.

Steele made birdies on Nos. At one point during the day, Steele and Finau were tied atop the leaderboard at 14-under.

"But my dad does a great job of reminding me I've done a lot of great things", Thomas said, "and I will continue to do a lot of great things if I continue to work hard and continue to do the right things". "It propelled me to my best season yet".

"I had seen the weather forecast for the whole week, that Sunday was going to be windy and it seems like Sunday's always the hardest day on the PGA Tour for whatever reason, the weather comes in".

"A little bit of everything worked for me today", Steele said. It's his third career victory on the PGA Tour. A member of the PGA Tour since the 2011 season, Steele shot a combined 12-under par in the first two rounds of the Safeway Open.

Meanwhile, PGA veteran Phil Mickelson, who has won 42 events, finished in third place, with three bogeys spoiling his round.

Brendan Steele reflects on defending his Safeway Open title in California. He had an eagle, 10 birdies and a bogey. Starting the day at the 10th tee, he had three birdies on his front nine, but then had three consecutive bogeys at the third, fourth and fifth holes on his back nine.
