Brendan Steele carded an 8-over-par 75-73 — 148 Thursday to miss the cut for the first time this year in a singles tournament. He and Keegan Bradley teamed to miss the cut at the Zurich Classic back in April.
The native Idyllwilder had trouble with driving accuracy and greens in regulation, hitting only 50 percent and 52 percent respectively, and he lost almost 3.4 strokes to the field putting as well. Not his week.
Brendan is not playing in this week’s Greenbrier Classic. He expects to play only three more times before the FedExCup playoffs: The (British) Open, The PGA Championship and the remaining WGC Tournament.
