Mickelson opened with a six-under 65 on the Monterey Peninsula course, one of three layouts in operation for the star-studded event this week, leaving the left-hander just one off the lead along with his fellow runner-up from past year, Jason Day.
"It was a really good solid round, good solid start, and we had lovely weather and the golf course here is in spectacular shape". "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".
"If I think about it that way it it certainly makes me happier, frees me up a bit". He played it off the beach back to the fairway, hit 7-iron to 10 feet and made the putt for a 69.
On this day 19 years ago, February 7, 2000, Tiger Woods remarkably overcame a seven-shot deficit with seven holes to play to defeat Matt Gogel in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and claim his sixth consecutive PGA Tour victory. "The putts went in instead of missing", he said.
Pep Guardiola Can't Believe Sergio Aguero's Open Goal Miss
The Senegal global headed home at the near post following a James Milner cross after Bournemouth had failed to clear a corner. Aguero was inches away from completing his 15th City hat-trick when he headed against the woodwork from a De Bruyne cross.
And it was also a good day for Mount Juliet's Gavin Moynihan (24), who shot a bogey-free, five-under 67 at the longer but easier Creek Course to share 32nd as Portmarnock amateur Conor Purcell (21) battled back from three-over after nine to post a level par 72.
But what would please Mickelson more than anything is to reign supreme in four months time when the US Open returns to Pebble Beach.
"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. I had an off year last year.
Best of the strong British contingent was Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Scotland's Martin Laird each shooting four-under par scores.
Online, mobile banking down for Wells Fargo customers due to intermittent outages
Wells Fargo online and mobile banking operations went offline Thursday morning, apparently nationwide. The US giant took to Twitter at about 9am EST to confirm an "issue", promising to research.
"I'm not the first pro that has struggled on the back nine at Pebble, and won't be the last", said Gogel, 28 at the time.
"I played 18 holes on Tuesday and that was my first 18 holes since 29th December". "I'm feeling like a genius right now, but at the time I didn't know".
Elizabeth Warren Announces She is Running for President in 2020
In 1912, textile workers in Lawrence, many of them immigrant women, walked off the job and went on strike to protest wage cuts. After the rally, Warren headed to Dover, N.H., a town of 32,000 with a long history in now-faded industries like shipbuilding.
