Safeway Open Tracker

UPDATE No. 13 (9:58 p.m.): Here’s the recap for the day.

UPDATE No. 12 (9:30 p.m.): Tyler Duncan chips in for eagle at No. 9 to shoot 6-under 66 and move to 13 under overall. He’ll be your 36-hole leader by a shot.

UPDATE No. 11 (8:32 p.m.): Chesson Hadley pars 18 to shoot 11-under 61. That’s a course record and he’s at 11 under, one back!

Brendan Steele posts 67 to finish two rounds at 12 under. He’s the clubhouse leader and quite likely to be the 36-hole leader.

UPDATE No. 10 (8:15 p.m.): Well, Hadley’s quest is likely over.

He knocks his tee shot into a fairway bunker. He has 255 yards left, so he’s extremely unlikely to reach the green. He’ll probably need a hole-out to shoot 59.

UPDATE No. 9 (8:05 p.m.): Hadley misses the green at 17 but cozies up his third for a par. He’ll need an eagle at 18 for 59.

UPDATE No. 8 (7:57 p.m.): Chesson Hadley 59 Watch is ON!!!!

Hadley birdies 13, 14, 15 and 16 and he’s now 11 under for the round through 16 holes. A birdie-birdie or par-eagle finish gives him a 59. (Note: The 18th is a par 5.)

UPDATE No. 7 (6:30 p.m.): Steele and Tyler Duncan lead at 10 under.

But Chesson Hadley is gaining. He’s currently 6 under overall after an opening 30!

UPDATE No. 6 (4 p.m.): There are 10 players tied for the lead at 7 under. Wow.

UPDATE No. 5 (3:56 p.m.): Mickelson makes a late bogey but follows it with a birdie to shoot a second straight 69 and get in at 6 under. He’s actually one back of the clubhouse lead after Grillo finishes bogey-bogey to fall to a 70 and 7 under.

Bill Haas (65), Martin Flores (67), Harold Varner III (68) and Chez Reavie (70) are also in the clubhouse at 7 under.

The overall lead still belongs to Steele, who birdied No. 1 in Round 2 to move to 8 under.

UPDATE No. 4 (3:01 p.m.): Mickelson birdie No. 4 to move to 6 under and within three of the lead!

UPDATE No. 3 (2:08 p.m.): Phil Mickelson birdies Nos. 15-17 to move to 5 under and is now within four.

Emiliano Grillo is the leader at 9 under. Bill Haas is now T-2 at 7 under as he’s 7 under for the day.

UPDATE No. 2 (11:52 a.m.): Emiliano Grillo birdies two of his first four holes (Nos. 11 and 13), and he’s tied for the lead at 7 under!

A four-way tie at the top!

UPDATE No. 1 (10:58 a.m.): Play has begun Friday in Napa. Jamie Lovemark has moved to 6 under and within one of the lead after an early birdie.
