Golf Expert Picks: Our Staff’s Favorite Bets for 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

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 competition".

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

We'll get to all of those guys in a second, but first we need to talk about our leaders, Brian Gay and Scott Langley. He's (theoretically) motivated, having lost his PGA Tour card last season.

A poor three-putt bogey from 21 feet at the 18th took some of the gloss off his day but he was still just three shots behind early leader Brian Gay, who shot a seven-under 64 at Monterey Peninsula where four-time victor Phil Mickelson carded a 65 and Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth opened with 66s.

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such attractive 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. He also shot 69 at Pebble, and don't say I didn't try and give him to you at 50-1 before the tournament started! He made a hard run at winning the Desert Classic in his first start of the calendar year, taking a two-shot lead into the final round before being overtaken by Adam Long's sizzling finish.

Manchester United fans have voiced their displeasure after defender Phil Jones was handed a new four-year deal by the club. I want to see my players fight until the end.

"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".

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 drove the ball very well today, obviously" he told the Golf Channel. "The putts went in instead of missing", Spieth said.

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

"So, if I just think about it that way, it kind of certainly makes me a little happier, frees me up a bit". The U.S. Open returns in June, when Mickelson will get another shot to try to complete the career Grand Slam.
