This weekend in golf saw the first event of the PGA Tour's 2017-18 season take place at the Safeway Open. Meanwhile, the 2016-17 seasons on both the European Tour and Ladies European Tour (LET) are still in the process of winding down. The European Tour saw the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship take place, while the LET played the Ladies Open de France.

Steele repeats at Safeway Open

Going into the final round at the Safeway Open 28-year-old rookie Tyler Duncan held a one-shot lead over Chesson Hadley at 14-under par. Bud Cauley and Brendan Steele were at 12-under and there were six golfers at 11 or 10 under.

Duncan was in unfamiliar territory, as this was only the second PGA Tour event he had ever played in.

Duncan shot a three-over par and was a nonfactor, finishing in a tie for fifth at 11-under par. Meanwhile, Tony Finau birded the 13th hole to tie Steele at 14-under par. However, he would double bogey the next hole and Steele would birdie the 16th and 18th holes to take the tournament at 15-under par. Finau would come in second at 13-under, while Phil Mickelson and Hadley were at 12-under.

This was the 34-year-old's third career victory on the PGA Tour. He also became a repeat champion at the event, as he won the Safeway Open last year.

Hatton wins Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

Tyrrell Hatton led the pack with a score of 18-under par heading into the last round at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

This put him five-shots ahead of Gregory Bourdy, who himself was two shots ahead of last week's winner on the European Tour Paul Dunne.

Hatton would end up opening up a seven-shot lead on the front nine on Sunday but would end up having to fend off a charging Ross Fischer. He shot an 11-under par 61 on the final day to finish at 21-under par for the tournament.

However, Hatton maintained his composure and won by three shots with a score of 24-under.

Like Brendan Steele, Hatton defended his title, as this was the second year in a row he has won this event. He also won his second European Tour victory in grand fashion, only dropping two shots all week.

Kerr coasts to win at Ladies Open de France

Cristie Kerr ented the final round at the Ladies Open de France on the Ladies European Tour with a commanding lead. She was at 16-under par, nine shots ahead of Xi Yu Lin, Azahara Munoz and Anne van Dam. Kerr then coasted in the final round, shooting a one-under 69 made up of one birdie and 17 pars.

She finished four shots ahead of Lin, who shot a 64 to finish at 13-under. This was the first ever victory on the Ladies European Tour for the 39-year-old Kerr, as well as her 27th professional victory.
