Brandt Snedeker leads Safeway Open; Phil Mickelson is 3 back

Phil Mickelson

"I had a awful warm-up yesterday and didn't warm up great today, but hit a lot of good shots out there". I didn't expect that.

He finished 2017-18 with added confidence after shooting a 59 in August en route to capturing the Wyndham Championship for his ninth title on the US Tour.

Brandt Snedeker and Mackenzie Hughes were part of a group of eight players who shot six-under 66. "I just did a great job of staying patient knowing the last three holes were birdies holes".

"I am 48-years old, and I am not going to play tournaments with rough like that anymore".

On the whole, I'm not sure it's as bad as some people are making it out to be.

"He's confident now being where he is", Snedeker said of the three-time Masters victor Mickelson. I didn't do that today. "But I am very pleased with mike back nine; I hit some nice shots".

Welcome to the official YouTube channel of the PGA TOUR.

The PGA Tour is back in action for a new season and Phil Mickelson apparently already forgot about his performance at the Ryder Cup last week, where he lost both matches. "My expectations were nil but I did a lot of good shots".

The US States lead Pool B on six points after the defending champions blanked Thailand in their two early matches, while Sweden sit two points behind following a split of their games against Japan. There was much chatter in the aftermath about the advantage Europe gained from playing a narrow course rife with rough. Sung Hyun Park and I.K. Kim defeated Charley Hull and Georgia Hall, 4 and 2.

The American shot a three-under 69 in testing conditions on day three, to take a strong lead entering the final day of competition.

Marcus Fraser of Australia was his nearest challenger after a 67 at Kingsbarns.

'The Europeans did the opposite of what we do when we have the Ryder Cup here, ' said Mickelson. "It was pretty cold this morning and I was struggling to warm up". "As the course gets tougher he is going to play better".
