Phil Mickelson hits every fairway for first time in 21 years

In the opening round of the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Jordan Spieth turned in a 5-under 66 at the Monterey Peninsula, placing him two-strokes off the lead heading into Friday. "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".

Aussie Scott has three top-20 finishes in his past four starts, including a second-place showing at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Brian Gay and Scott Langley each had a 64 at Monterey for a one-shot lead to par on the three-course rotation Thursday.

Dustin Johnson moved into early position Thursday to win in back-to-back weeks and erase any sour taste that may linger from last year's blown chance at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Gay finished in the top 10 here a year ago, 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. On the three previous occasions he opened with a score of 65 or better at Pebble Beach, he went on to win.

Speaking Monday , Palaszczuk warned: "There's going to be heavy rainfall over the next couple of days". The missing men have been identified as 25-year-old Troy Mathieson and 20-year-old Hughie Morton.

Lowry is third-favorite behind Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey, the latter of whom I believe should be his greatest threat.

The iconic oceanside course annually plays host to the biggest names on Tour golfing alongside celebrities from sports, music and film on the scenic Monterey Peninsula.

Mickelson still needs to capture a first US Open to join just five other players, including long-time arch-rival Tiger Woods as a member of golf's most-exclusive club - "The Grand Slam Club".

"It's about how do I improve to get myself into contention this week and then what do I do next week and just staying very present and recognising the longevity of a career", Spieth said. I still don't trust him after last week's 68-75 missed cut (I think we could see the same thing this week), but for one day he really shined at Monterey.

"When you don't have any distractions and you have a clearer mind, you can focus on playing". It's always jarring to watch ams and pros in the same event because it makes you realize just how good the pros are when they hit shots like this one.
