Gay, Langley take early lead at Pebble Beach Pro

Gay, Langley take early lead at Pebble Beach Pro

Spieth's last PGA Tour win was in July 2017 at The Open Championship and the American star is hoping to end his drought when the Pebble Beach Pro-Am begins on Thursday.

"I think history was made as far as my career".

"I'm not going to chase them as hard as a year ago because you can get hurt doing that, you can get into some bad patterns".

"My speed was off".

"I feel like my game's trending the right direction and sometimes that means results are coming soon", Spieth told reporters Wednesday.

"I was even through five holes and then I made a nice little run". "This was a day that we had great weather, the courses were very scorable, you need to take advantage".

It gives him momentum in his return to Pebble Beach, where he lost a share of the final-round lead to journeyman Ted Potter Jr. past year.

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.

South Korean Kim Si-woo had the best score at Pebble, a 66, while American Cody Gribble was best at Spyglass, also 66.

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.

Day, Johnson and Spieth are all part of the world number one club.

Most unusual was Mickelson avoiding the rough.

Johnson said last week's victory at the Saudi International on the European Tour was important. "The putts went in instead of missing", he said. And I could have really poor years the rest of my career and still have a pretty fantastic career. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.
