Gay, Langley Share AT&T Pebble Beach Lead

  • Betting Adam Scott fancied to mount strong challenge at Pebble Beach

The unusually accurate driving helped the five-times major champion to a six-under-par 65 at Monterey Peninsula, one of three courses used at the event.

"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", said Mickelson, who initially believed it was the first time he had accomplished the feat.

Spieth finished in a tie for 35th place in his last start two weeks ago at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Jason Day also fired a 65 at Monterey but world number 155 Brian Gay and 285th-ranked Scott Langley shot 64s.

Thursday morning was supposed to bring an early wake-up call for John Rollins here at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

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 feel like my game's trending the right direction and sometimes that means results are coming soon", Spieth told reporters Wednesday.

Air crash investigators are attempting to recover body from plane wreckage
The "substantial amount of wreckage" of the plane, was found on Sunday morning after Mr Mearns' privately-funded search began. Local police called off the search after a few days, stating that it was unlikely anyone would still be found alive.

The course average at Monterey was a tasty 68.8 compared to the other two tracks (71.4 at Pebble, 72.0 at Spyglass).

"You don't know how it's all going to play out, but I think it's important to get off to a good start", Mickelson said.

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".

"If you don't score well out here you put yourself kind of behind a bit and it's tough to make up when we got weather coming in because you're trying to force it", Spieth said.

"There's a few things that within our family that go back to this place where my grandfather grew up here and he was one of the original caddies in the caddie group", he said.

"When you don't have any distractions and you have a clearer mind, you can focus on playing".

"And I think that made a big difference and I think that rule is really turning out to be a good one". Thankfully he won't have to play that course when he dukes it out with Jordan Spieth for the 2019 U.S. Open.
