Brendan Steele shot a three-under round of 69 to clinch the Safeway Open trophy for the second year in a row.

John Daly, the two-time major victor who in May won his first PGA Tour Champions title and is playing via a sponsor exemption, birdied the 18th for a second-round 69 to make the 1-under cut at 143.

"I was hitting great shots, good putts and got some good breaks".

Brendan Steele won the tournament at 15-under, while Tony Finau finished at minus-13.

Steele made birdies on Nos. Like Steele, Finau shot a 3-under 69 on Sunday.

He said: "Let's take a moment to admire the fact that I just hit a fairway". After all that, it was no surprise when the tour said Wednesday that Thomas had been voted the PGA Tour player of the year.
