Mickelson hits every fairway for first time in two decades

Mickelson hits every fairway for first time in two decades

Team USA's Phil Mickelson during the Singles.

Mickelson, who was runner-up to Adam Long at last month's Desert Classic but missed the cut at the Phoenix Open last week, hit all 13 fairways for the first time in a PGA Tour round since the Farmers Insurance Open in 1998.

"I may have done it before, but I don't ever recall doing it", a satisfied Mickelson said afterwards.

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.

Phil Mickelson hit every fairway for the first time in 21 years on his way to a six-under 65 at Monterey Peninsula, an ideal start Thursday on perhaps the last ideal day at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

"So, if I just think about it that way, it kind of certainly makes me a little happier, frees me up a bit".

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.

Body recovered from Emiliano Sala plane wreckage
The former club of Emiliano Sala are demanding his transfer fee after the striker's tragic disappearance, according to reports. Sala and his pilot David Ibbotson have been missing since shortly after their plane took off from France on January 21.

The border between N. Ireland and Ireland
Northern Ireland also voted narrowly in favor of remaining in the European Union in 2016's referendum. Mr Juncker rejected giving the United Kingdom a way to unilaterally pull out of the backstop.

Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It
Given how EA has repeatedly said that this is a "premium" game , that rules out this being a small, indie-ish title. Investors are certainly being cautious-EA's share price is down more than 13 percent this morning.

The tournament, which sees professionals play alongside celebrities, is spread across three courses near the picturesque town of Carmel - Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula.

Mickelson is regarded as having arguably the greatest short game in golfing history but has perennially struggled with the driver. They are tied for second with South Korea's Si Woo Kim, who posted the low score on the Pebble Beach course, and Cody Gribble, the low man at Spyglass Hill on Thursday.

His round included a birdie on the par-three ninth, his 18th hole of the day, to leave him alongside Gay on seven under.

I putted very well too, although my speed was off.

The 38-year-old is making his third start at the Pebble Beach Pro Am when he would usually still be on a break in Australia.

"I was really surprised he could say that", said Choi, who needed a translator to share that.

Scott is joined in the field by fellow Australian Jason Day, who finished runner-up at Pebble Beach past year.
