PGA Tour rookie Tyler Duncan keeps lead at Safeway Open

PGA Tour rookie Tyler Duncan keeps 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 of the US won the Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort in California for a second year running.

Duncan missed out on PGA Tour status via the Web.Com regular season but played his way to the "big time" with a good run through the Web.Com Tour finals and has made a dream start at this higher level despite a golf course which firmed as the afternoon progressed.

Emiliano Grillo, the 2015 tournament victor, shot 68 to match Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under. But a birdie at 16 moved him to 14 under and a two-shot lead. "This will definitely set up my season and hopefully springboard me into another really good year".

"I was happy the way I hung in there; I didn't hit a lot of quality shots off the tee coming in like I needed to", Finau said. After all that, it was no surprise when the tour said Wednesday that Thomas had been voted the PGA Tour player of the year.

"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".

"I was with my parents when I got the call, so I was able to kind of share the moment with them a little bit". This will be the last domestic event on the PGA Tour that offers full FedEx Cup points until Las Vegas the first week in November. He finished eighth a year ago and is seeking his first title since the 2013 British Open. “I had a really good ball-striking day. Emiliano Grillo (68) of Argentina, the victor in 2015, was tied for fifth place with Canada's Graham DeLaet (69) at 11 under par. He carded one more birdie at number six to cap his bogey-free round.

Finau's round consisted of an eagle-3 on No. 5, birdies on Nos. 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. He nailed just about each one except for finishing in the top 10 at half of his PGA Tour events.
