Johnson, Hossler tied for lead at Pebble Beach

Matt Kuchar and Julian Suri were in a three-way tie for third after posting matching 66s at Spyglass Hill, with Aaron Mise also getting to six-under at the par-71 Monterey Peninsula.

Defending champion: Jordan Spieth. He followed his lone bogey of the day with back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17, and picked up three more birdies coming in. "It's probably the first time, too, I think we have ever played over there with nice weather". I know it's about your own game and it's about improving, that's all you're trying to do is consistently improve and get better.

On a flawless day in Pebble Beach, Rory could not have had a sunnier attitude. "I can't remember the last time the AT&T had this many top players", Martin says.

Mickelson was encouraged after his round, which featured six birdies and no bogeys. Calcavecchia is seeking his fourth senior title and first since 2015.

This fast start couldn't come at a better time for McIlroy, the 29 year-old future Hall of Famer.

No doubt the emphasis on the dice was to prep for the release of the Solo movie, where they'll probably be more prominent. We've already done a full breakdown of the trailer that digs into all the noteworthy info we could pull from the footage.

"It was a fun day and I just love Monterrey Peninsula where the fairways are wide and they feel pretty easy to hit", said Mickelson. "I wanted to do it past year as well". The Great One cited a sore back when he withdrew Saturday from the pro-am.

'I've just got to do the right things, prepare well, go through the right steps on the golf course to get myself into contention. All three players in closest pursuit - Rahm, Spieth and Thomas - are 24 or younger, creating much chatter about golf's young studs and occasionally overshadowing Johnson.

"It's hard to assess it, it's hard to explain it in words", Rahm said of his rapid ascent that includes four wins worldwide. I'm going to take a couple of weeks. Just like it was 81 years ago with Bing Crosby, the Pro-Am is a colorful mixture of the game's top pros playing alongside actors, musicians, sports stars and captains of industry.

Jason Day had a 65 at Monterey Peninsula and was in the group at 9 under that included Steve Stricker (66 at Monterey Peninsula).

As the four-time major victor stepped off the course he was tied 85th after signing for a 74 and a one under par total. Mickelson was tied for the lead at one point when he ran off three straight birdies at Monterey Peninsula, though he made only two more over his final 11 holes for a 65. The Greystones man - playing on a sponsor's invite this week - had made three birdies in a row at the turn to get under par after two early bogeys but saw the shots slip away on the 15th and 18th.
