Brendan Steele shoots a final-round 65 to win the Safeway Open, while England's Paul Casey finished in third place.

Brendan Steele has won his first PGA title in five years with victory at the Safeway Open.

The American began the final day in fifth place but after rain hampered the opening stages in California, he returned to post a final-round 65 to give him the win by one shot.

Patton Kizzire was forced to settle for second after only producing a round of 70 on Sunday, while England's Paul Casey finished in third position to continue his excellent recent form.

Scott Piercy, Michael Kim and Johnson Wagner shared third spot with Casey, but Scotland's Martin Laird could only end the tournament in eighth after three bogeys on his closing 11 holes.

Spain's Jon Rahm continued his fine transition from the amateur to professional ranks with a 15th-place finish.
