Rollins gets last spot in field at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro

Other contenders - Phil Mickelson (-6), Jason Day (-6), Dustin Johnson (-5), Jordan Spieth (-5): All four of these players unsurprisingly started on the easiest course, Monterey Peninsula. "To the best of my knowledge, it's taken me 27 years and a few months to hit all fairways in a single round in a competition". He last did it at the Farmers Insurance Open in 1998.

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

Five-time major champion Phil Mickelson carded a six-under 65 to share second place after the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California.

Gay finished in the top 10 here previous year, too, so he has a little bit of recent history, but he doesn't have a top-20 on the PGA Tour since the Wyndham Championship last August.

He initially believed it was his first time accomplishing this mark before Golf Channel's Justin Ray corrected the stat on social media.

He has seemed out of sorts since a poor final round at last year's British Open at Carnoustie, where he shared the lead starting on Sunday before fading to a tie for ninth.

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such lovely 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.

Callamard added. "The murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the sheer brutality of it has brought irreversible tragedy to his loved ones". Saudi Arabia has denied Turkey's request for extradition of the 11 suspects, amid conflicting claims for jurisdiction, Ms.

Mickelson was emboldened with Thursday's fast start, knowing bad weather is expected to come in Friday, making any big charges tougher on the weekend.

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

"I don't think it has anything to do with why I've played well here in the past, but you never know, it's just I always enjoy coming here".

It was not just Mickelson's driver that was working.

However, 11-time Tour champion Spieth said he is "in a good place right now".

"I'm really happy about the back nine".

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such lovely scenery, I couldn't even focus on where my ball was going". Thankfully he won't have to play that course when he dukes it out with Jordan Spieth for the 2019 U.S. Open.
