Phil Mickelson hits every fairway for first time in 21 years

Phil Mickelson hits every fairway for first time in 21 years

Rodgers is participating in the 2019 Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament, and he teed off for the first time on Thursday morning.

Day carded seven birdies in his 65, while two-time champion Dustin Johnson and 2017 victor Jordan Spieth also took advantage of the favourable scoring conditions on the Monterey Peninsula course as they opened with 66s, while last week's Phoenix Open runner-up Branden Grace returned an impressive five-under 67 at Pebble Beach.

Brian Gay and Scott Langley each had a 64 at Monterey for a one-shot lead to par on the three-course rotation Thursday. 'I may have done it before but I don't ever recall doing it'.

The last time he hit every fairway in a PGA Tour event was at Torrey Pines back in 1998, according to the Tour.

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". I like the style of the course and it's out here on the water.

"My speed was off".

"So, if I just think about it that way, it kind of certainly makes me a little happier, frees me up a bit". "This was a day that we had great weather, the courses were very scorable, and so you need to take advantage of that".

The pros also have a traditional stroke-play tournament over the four days on California's Monterey Peninsula.

Everyone in the field plays each of the three courses, before the cut is made for the final round at Pebble.

Third-ranked Dustin Johnson, a two-time AT&T Pebble Beach, 2017 champion Jordan Spieth, who birdied five of the last nine holes, Keith Mitchell and Austin Cook all shot 5-under 66 at Monterey Peninsula.

The former world number one triumphed 11 times on the PGA Tour before turning 24 but is coming off the first disappointing year of his career.

Day shares third at six under alongside five others including five-time major victor Phil Mickelson. With three birdies in his last eight holes, Choi shot 72 at the Shore Course.

Spieth was even at the turn but ran in five birdies coming home. "But I am looking to build off something this week to get this season kick-started really".
