Safeway Open, Napa - Brendan Steele $1.116M

If it wasn’t for the tragedy that befell Napa and Sonoma this week, the painfully obviously headline would be how Brendan Steele lit up the course. It is frightening beyond words, and I write for a living, to imagine the chaos and worse had the fires occurred a day, if not hours, earlier. Ingress and egress to any Tour event is tight but the winding and hilly roads of Napa are particularly constricted. A bullet, nay a missile, was dodged this week to be sure.
