The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am returns to the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula in California.
Not that that is a surprise.
Although the Queenslander's drought is nearly out to three years, Scott feels he is on the cusp of reclaiming his top form as he prepares for this week's Pebble Beach Pro Am in California.
Mickelson won the AT&T first in 1998 and then again in 2005 and 2007 and for the fourth time in 2012 with that victory seven years ago very special for him.
Cody Gribble had a 6-under 66 at Spyglass Hill and Si Woo Kim had a 6-under 66 at Pebble Beach.
The players will rotate at each of the three courses through Saturday, with Sunday's final round taking place at Pebble Beach.
Man City coach Guardiola confused over Mendy’s whereabouts
Guardiola's comical reaction to Mendy's whereabouts soon vent viral with the hashtag #WhereIsMendy trending on social media. The Frenchman later claimed he was only joking, but not until after he had caught his manager Pep Guardiola by surprise.
Hosung Choi, a two-time victor on the Japan Golf Tour whose extravagant body English after every shot made him an internet sensation, came back after a poor start.
The 45-year-old became a global social media celebrity in June last year when footage went viral of Choi's colourful on-course antics at the Korean Open - including twists, turns and bows when reacting to his golf shots. All four players return to Pebble along with numerous game's best, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jason Day. "I'm in a good place now".
Brandt Snedeker probably wasn't thinking birdie when his tee shot on the par-5 18th at Pebble Beach missed left and bounced down to the sandy shore. I like the style of the course and it's out here on the water. "It definitely fits my eye, just off the tee". I wasn't just hitting it down the middle, I was able to pick which side I was going to hit down the fairways.
"It was a really good solid round, good solid start, and we had handsome weather and the golf course here is in spectacular shape".
"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.
"If you don't score well out here, you put yourself behind a bit and it's tough to make up when we got weather coming in because you're trying to force it", Spieth said.
