After Round 1 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Kevin Streelman and Beau Hossler share the lead at 7 under. Streelman shot a 7-under 65 at the Spyglass Hill course, and Hossler fired the same 7-under 65 number at Pebble Beach (golfers play three different courses over the first three rounds before Round 4 at Pebble).
They have a lot of chasers, though. Matt Kuchar is T3 after the first day, and then the dominoes start to fall. Dustin Johnson is T6 and just two back. Patrick Cantlay is also 5 under and T6. Rory McIlroy is T16 after a 4-under 68. Jon Rahm is on that same 4-under number. Huge stars chasing a youngster in Hossler and a vet in Streelman makes for a solid final three rounds.
The first day's worth of play was as lengthy. There were fireworks early and often -- Cantlay started birdie-ace-birdie -- and several fun celebrity sightings on Thursday, including Aaron Rodgers running in long putts and liberally tossing out fist pumps.
DJ led early in the day, and he never left the leaderboard throughout. D.J. had six birdies and just a single bogey in his 5-under 67 at Spyglass Hill as he played alongside Wayne Gretzky. Johnson dates Gretzky's daughter and the couple has two kids together.
Playing alongside Johnson, Spieth shot an even-par 72 at Spyglass. The issue was once again his putter. His career average for putts per round is around 28, but he took 32 again on Thursday (the norm for him so far this year).
In his first appearance on the PGA Tour in 2018, McIlroy birdied all four par 5s he played and threw in two more at par 4s for good measure. He shot a 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill, which was enough to get him into the top 20 after the first day.
