  • Defending champ Steele, Duncan, Hoge share Safeway Open lead

Phil Mickelson shot a four-under par 68 to reach 10-under and give himself a chance on Sunday.

Previous year at Silverado, he birdied the final three holes to overcome a four-shot deficit and beat Patton Kizzire by a stroke for his second PGA Tour title.

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.

Emiliano Grillo, the 2015 tournament victor, shot 68 to match Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under.

Among the standout shots was a deft chip from a bunker on the par-five 16th which led to an easy two-foot par for a birdie.

World number 29 Phil Mickelson may not have been in the best form over the last few years but that has not deterred him from seeing the amusing side of his wayward hitting.

Steele won the tournament by two strokes, with Tony Finau finishing at 13-under par.

Steele had six birdies and a bogey in a 67.

A common theme of white nationalism in the United States is the idea that white people are being killed off in a genocide. They dressed similarly in white shirts and some wore sunglasses in the dark while chanting, " You will not replace us ".


"(There) was a brutal wind today", Steele said, according to AFP.

"This place is so great for me", said Steele. A great performance, but Mickelson still has not won on the PGA Tour since 2013.

“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. “I had a really good ball-striking day. Mickelson had four birdies and one bogey on the back nine of his final-round 2-under 70.

The event was the opener of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season.

Bud Cauley (66) surged into contention to be tied for third at 12 under, alongside defending champion Brendan Steele (72).

Among the highlights of his round - which included 10 birdies, an eagle and a single dropped shot on the par-four sixth - was a 166-yard tee shot on the 15th to set up an eight-foot birdie putt. Emiliano Grillo (68) of Argentina, the victor in 2015, was tied for fifth place with Canada's Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under par.

It was the 47-year-old Mickelson's 27th third-place finish in 27 PGA Tour seasons to along with 42 career wins and 34 runner-up finishes. He has not played a PGA Tour-sanctioned event since the 2015 Presidents Cup.
