The Idyllwild native's 1-over-par 72-68 -- 140 missed the cut by two strokes. It marked only the third time he's gone home early this season.

Steele plays next week in the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Don't forget that with tournament coverage on Sunday, CBS will be broadcasting a special segment on Brendan Steele that was taped right here in Idyllwild.
