Safeway Open viewer’s guide: Tee times, TV schedule and purse

October 3, 2018

The PGA Tour’s 2018-19 season opener, the Safeway Open, will be played at the Silverado Resort & Spa for the fifth year in a row. Defending champ Brendan Steele is seeking his third Safeway Open win in as many years. Last season, Steele made it all the way to the BMW Championship, where he finished 64th.

Patrick Cantlay is the current betting favorite at Silverado, with 12/1 odds. The 26-year-old is making his Safeway Open debut after finishing 20th in the 2017-18 FedEx Cup standings.

Fresh off a trip to Paris and the Ryder Cup, Phil Mickelson will be hoping to capitalize on good memories in Napa. He finished T3 last year and needs a boost after failing to earn a point in Paris.

When: Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 4-7
Defending champion: Brendan Steele (15 under, 273)
