Good conditions surprise Mahan

February 08, 2013 14:49:22 UK

Hunter Mahan took advantage of some good conditions to take a share of the lead after the first round of the AT & T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Mahan shot a six-under 66 on some surprisingly benign conditions at Pebble Beach after rain had been forecast.

He missed only two greens and said afterwards: "The pace was great. The weather was good. I think the most interesting thing was we had perfect weather when it was supposed to rain at noon. We were all expecting rain."

Mahan is in a share of first place with the Scot Russell Knox, who carded eight birdies in a six-under-par round of 64 on the Monterey Peninsula course - one of three courses used in the event.

The pace was great. The weather was good.

Greg Owen is joint-third, with fellow Englishman Lee Westwood a shot behind. Owen fired a five-under round at Monterey while Westwood carded a four-under-par 68 at Pebble Beach.

Seung-yul Noh of South Korea, who played at Spyglass Hill, made two bogeys on the last two holes to finish on five-under, after which he said: "Still a good score. I'm really happy with that."

Also on five-under were Scott Langley and Matt Every, who had a bogey on his final hole at Pebble Beach for a 67.

Phil Mickelson opened with a 69 at Monterey Peninsula and said of his round: "One of the things I've learned over the years here is you need to be patient. There's plenty of birdie holes throughout the three courses. Hopefully, I'll get a good run tomorrow and try to shoot myself up into contention."

Mickelson is 67.00 to win the tournament while Westwood can be backed at 51.00, Owen at 34.00 and Mahan at 67.00.
