Brendan Steele posted another 2-over-par 74 on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer, dropping to 46th place. His tournament scores were 67-70-74-74 – 285.
The Idyllwild native’s greens-in-regulation stat returned to normal on Sunday, but his putter wasn’t working particularly well; he gave up 1.7 strokes putting to the field.
Brendan has played in 10 tournaments this season, making eight cuts and collecting four top-20 finishes, one of them being a third. With the season only about one-third complete, he already is on the verge of both securing a berth in next year’s The Player’s championship and ensuring his playing card for next season. He now stands 43th on the FedExCup points list and 79th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
B has this week off.
