The third round of the 2017 Safeway Open tee times and pairings.
Second-Round Leaderboard Tyler Duncan 65-66—131 (-13) Brendan Steele 65-67—132 (-12) Chesson Hadley 72-61—133 (-11)
In just his second PGA TOUR start, rookie Tyler Duncan overcame three consecutive bogeys on Nos. 2-4 with seven birdies and a holed bunker shot for an eagle-three at No. 9, his final hole of the day. Coupled with birdies at Nos. 7 and 8, he played his last three holes in 4-under par. At 13-under 131, he takes a one-shot lead into round three.
Duncan, a 2012 Purdue University grad, earned his PGA TOUR card this season by virtue of his 23rd-place finish on the Web.com Tour priority list. In his only other start on TOUR, Duncan missed the cut at the 2015 U.S. Open.
Defending champion Brendan Steele made six birdies and one bogey (par-3 11th) en route to a 5-under 67.
Since moving to the Silverado Resort and Spa in 2015, Steele is the most under par of any player at 40-under par. He leads Kevin Na, who is 32-under-par.
Steele hit seven of 14 fairways in regulation and 16 of 18 greens in round two. Through two rounds, he is now 34 of 36 into the greens.
Last year’s win at the Safeway Open was Steele’s second on the PGA TOUR (2011 Valero Texas Open).
With 10 birdies (2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16), an eagle (par-5 ninth) and a bogey (par-4 sixth), Chesson Hadley followed an even-par 72 in round one with a course 11-under 61. It ties the tournament record set most recently by Troy Matteson and Mike Weir in 2009. He will head into the weekend trailing Tyler Duncan by two strokes.
Hadley’s 11-under 61 supplants the previous course record of 62, posted most recently by Scott Piercy in round one last year.
Hadley’s 61 marks his career-low score, previously a 64 from round one of the 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am just a few hours south of Napa.
En route to his 61, Chesson Hadley missed just two greens in regulation and needed 25 putts to complete his round. He is making his fourth start in the Safeway Open this week, having never finished better than T57 (2015).
