Number of consecutive victories that Brendan Steele is seeking in the PGA Tour’s Safeway Open, the first event of the 2018-19 season, which begins today at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course in Napa, Calif. Steele, 35, owns only one other victory since joining the PGA Tour for the 2011 season, the 2011 Valero Texas Open (tee times).
Record when Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson have been paired as a match-play team during UL International Crown and Solheim Cup competition. The Kerr-Thompson duo will lead the U.S. today against Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg and Madelene Sagstrom in the UL International Crown at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon. In the other U.S. match, Jessica Korda and Michelle Wie will play Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall. Host South Korea, which will field three of the top 10 players in the Rolex Rankings, is favored in the eight-team biennial event (scores/pairings).
