His round consisted of five birdies and three bogeys. He then righted himself and had a birdie-2 on the seventh hole, a birdie-3 on the eighth hole and an eagle-3 on his final hole, the par-5 ninth.

PGA Europe: Defending champion Tyrrell Hatton opened a five-shot lead heading into the final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews, Scotland.

Zach Johnson, the 12-time PGA Tour victor playing the event for the first time, had a 68 with five birdies and a bogey.

Mickelson was in contention for victory but his poor driving let him down once again - resulting in compatriot Brendan Steele registering back-to-back titles at the Silverado Country Club. Those two did not account for his two bogeys, however. He has never finished in the top 10 in a Grand Slam event.

PGA TOURSAFEWAY OPENSite: Napa, Calif. Course: Silverado Resort and Spa (North Course). There are a couple of tee shots and a couple of approaches where you have to pay attention. Duncan shared the first-round lead. But a birdie at 16 moved him to 14 under and a two-shot lead.

The congested leaderboard sees another four players a further shot back, with Phil Mickelson (68) among them. There's also a 6/1 Price Boost for either Mickelson or Tony Finau to come through the pack and take the title on Sunday.

Weinstein apparently tried to call Sivan the next day to set something up, but she declined and he never reached out to her again. After ejaculating into a nearby potted plant, Weinstein cleaned up and returned to the nightclub.

Steele won last year's Safeway Open in Napa, shooting a 65 in the final round. He came back from four shots off the lead to start the day in the final round past year.

Third-round leader Tyler Duncan finished in a tie for fifth at 11 under with Graham DeLaet after firing a Sunday 3-over 75.

Phil Mickelson shot a 70 to finish in a tie for third with Chesson Hadley at 12-under. He had an eagle, 10 birdies and a bogey.

Phil Mickelson, 42 time PGA Tour victor, ended the day tied for 15th place with a pair of three-under rounds of 69 despite a double bogey on the par-four 14th and can be backed at 25/1 to come through the field over the weekend and take the title.

Brendan Steele successfully retained his Safeway Open title with a two-stroke victory in California. The putt that Steele said was "huge", however, was the seven-foot, six-inch putt for bogey on No. 14.

Chez Reavie, Jamie Lovemark and Zach Johnson are all 14/1, and it's 16/1 bar.
