Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Phil Mickelson one shot off first-round lead

Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Phil Mickelson one shot off first-round lead

Mickelson trailed American leaders Brian Gay and Scott Langley, who also played at Monterey, by one stroke.

"It was a really good solid round, good solid start, and we had attractive weather and the golf course here is in spectacular shape".

"If you ask Brad, I'm swinging the club really well and that confidence compounding over the next month could be really positive before the majors and big events this year", Scott said.

"If I think about it that way it it certainly makes me happier, frees me up a bit".

Four-time event champion Phil Mickelson hit every fairway in posting a 6-under 66 on the Monterey course, along with Matt Every, Kevin Kisner and Australia's Jason Day. "I ran a number of putts by, but I made a lot of them coming back and made a lot of short ones". And so there's an emotional tie to this place.

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such handsome scenery, I couldn't even focus on where my ball was going".

Venezuela's Independence Being Destroyed Under Cloak of Humanitarian Aid — Maduro
Possible US aggression against Caracas can not be justified, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro told reporters on Friday. He outlined the move as part of a plan to push the military into cooperating with the opposition.

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such attractive scenery, I couldn't even focus on where my ball was going", Choi said of Pebble Beach Golf Links, which is set on the famed Monterey Peninsula. Mickelson is not, though he has won more majors of now active players than anyone other than Tiger Woods. I had an off year last year. Jordan Spieth endured the worst of the rain and hung on to join him atop the leaderboard until it was too wet to finish the second round Friday in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

"The pain just didn't go away and the results from some scans showed a bone bruise in my left wrist", he said.

"Now, I feel like I'm going to have a good score every time I tee it up and I haven't had that consistency for a while".

"I might not have as much (flexibility) compared to the other Tour players but I do what I can with what I have".

Grace got off to a flying start with a birdie on the first followed by an eagle on the par-five second, when he guided his second shot off the fairway 237 yards to leave himself a 24-foot putt.
