"But I was right behind the tree, " he said.

Streelman doesn't even play the most golf on his pro-am team - his partner is Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, a golf fanatic and regular at Whisper Rock - but he managed to put together another strong round at Spyglass and keep bogeys off his card for a seven-under 65. "Made a good bogey on 16".

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished the first round of the 2018 Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a birdie putt on the 18th hole Thursday. He's skipping the WGC Mexico, and added Valspar to give him three in a row two times and to keep from being of for two weeks.

And while he was riding high, with three wins over the previous 10 months heading to Pebble in '05, this time around Mickelson is looking for his first victory since the 2013 British Open.

Jason Day is next best of the Australians courtesy of a 69 at Spyglass leaving him at three under, sharing 32nd with a logjam of players including five-time major victor Phil Mickelson.

The Northern Irishman, who started four shots off the lead, dropped down the leaderboard after carding a three-over-par 74 to leave him one-under overall.

Pebble Beach is not yet his personal playground, but Johnson thrives on the course.

Johnson and Jordan Spieth - tied for 23rd after his 66 on Friday - will tee off at 9:21 a.m. on Saturday at Pebble Beach.

Ahead of this week's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Australian said four-time Major victor McIlroy possesses all the tools to dominate the sport in a manner similar to Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and early 2000s but raised doubt over 'how much he wants it'.

He ended up five-putting for a double bogey, his round falling apart.

He attempted a very long putt from the fringe, nearly sinking it for an eagle and putting it just six feet past the cup.

Mickelson was encouraged after his round, which featured six birdies and no bogeys. He's not one to be intimidated by the world's No. 1 player (they are represented by the same manager), and that won't be an issue on Saturday, anyway.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tees it up this week on the Monterey Peninsula. Hossler figures to be in relative solitude at Monterey Peninsula.

"I could do things a little bit better but I had a lot of really good looks at birdie and didn't really make anything".

'There's nothing in my way stopping me from playing a pretty full schedule so it's nice to start here in California and work my way back east, and play a couple of tournaments I've never played before so I'm excited for that.

Dustin Johnson, meanwhile, fired a seven-under 64 to climb into a share of the lead on Friday.

"The game's really close", Johnson said.

"I bowled 11 in a row, " he said, breaking into a smile, "and then I gassed it". He must maintain those numbers during the final two rounds since he can't match the distance of big hitters like Johnson.

Nine golfers were tied for fourth, three strokes behind Rumford.

Westwood and Rumford had 36-hole totals of 8-under 136.
