Rose Leads the Way After Record Day at Pebble Beach

What happened on Thursday at Pebble Beach?

Justin Rose tied the US Open first round scoring record at Pebble Beach as he birdied the last three holes to lead the way with a sparkling 65.

The Englishman, who won this trophy in 2013 at Merion, matched Tiger Woods’ famous round 19 years ago to forge a shot clear of a quartet of players.

He birdied three holes on his way to an outward 32, and made six straight pars on the back nine before finishing with some fireworks.

That flourish capped a remarkable day at a major usually regarded as the sport’s toughest – with 39 players in red numbers.

Behind Rose at the top of the leaderboard is a four-way tie. Xander Schauffele is making just his 10th major start.

Sportscaster and Pebble Beach local, Jim Nantz, narrates this spectacular hole-by-hole flyover of Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California.


In this influential study, three golfers of different skill levels try a series of golf shots after consuming more and more alcoholic drinks to see how alcohol affects their game. A semi-pro, an amateur, and a casual golfer progress through five rounds of driving off the tee, hitting with an iron, and putting on the green - first while sober then adding 2 drinks with each round of shots. Sports Medicine Physician Dr. Ara Suppiah MD explains what's happening to each golfer under the influence.


The First Look: Travelers Championship

Bubba Watson defends his title and seeks to join the late Billy Casper as the only four-time winner of Connecticut’s annual PGA TOUR stop, as the circuit switches coasts back from Pebble Beach for its 36th visit to TPC River Highlands.

Brooks Koepka is slated to make the trek one week after his quest for a historic third consecutive U.S. Open title, while Phil Mickelson is set to end a 15-year absence from a place where he became the tournament’s only back-to-back winner in 2001 and ’02.

FIELD NOTES: Patrick Cantlay, whose first visit to Greater Hartford as a 2011 amateur featured a 60, is back for his fifth appearance. He’s just three weeks removed from winning the Memorial Tournament for his second TOUR win. … Paul Casey, who couldn’t close out a four-shot lead heading to last year’s final round, is back in search of an elusive Hartford win. He also was a playoff loser to Watson in 2015. … England’s Tommy Fleetwood will get his first look at TPC River Highlands. … Outgoing U.S. Amateur champ Viktor Hovland and Oklahoma State teammate Matthew Wolff are set to make their professional debuts. Two other freshly minted pros accepted invites – Collin Morikawa makes his third pro start and Justin Suh his second.

FEDEXCUP: Winner receives 500 points.

STORYLINES: Watson, who preceded last year’s victory with playoff wins in 2010 and ’15, now sets his sights on Casper’s Hartford standard. Casper captured what was then the Insurance City Open in 1963, following with victories in ’65, ’68 and ’73. … A Watson triumph also would lift him alongside Mickelson as the event’s only back-to-back winner. … Mickelson sets foot at River Highlands for the first time since 2003, when he tied for 58th in his bid for a three-peat. That’s when the event was played in August, rather than following the U.S. Open. … Each of the past five Travelers champions has won after playing the U.S. Open, though Russell Knox’s 2016 victory gets an asterisk. An Olympic shakeup that year moved the Travelers back to August. … Just four New Englanders have won in Hartford, though two came back-to-back in 2005 (Brad Faxon) and 2006 (J.J. Henry). The others are Paul Azinger (1987, ’89) and Bob Toski (1953). … The Travelers has gone to a playoff in each of the previous three odd-year editions – 2017 (Jordan Spieth), 2015 (Watson), 2013 (Ken Duke).

In 23 starts in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-am, Phil Mickelson has 11 top-10 finishes, including five victories. Check out some of his top moments on the Monterey Peninsula in California.
