Weak start for Lahiri and Atwal at AT&T Pebble Beach; Taylor leads

Pebble Beach, CA, Feb 7: It was a weak start for both Anirban Lahiri and Arjun Atwal on the opening day of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Lahiri, struggling to find his form shot one-over 73 at Pebble Beach, while Atwal, playing his first event in 2020 carded three-over 75 at Spyglass Hill.

Nick Taylor opened with an eagle and ended with two birdies for an 8-under 63 at Monterey Peninsula on a gorgeous day even though a lot of attention was on Spyglass Hill, which featured Dustin Johnson (69) and Phil Mickelson (68), along with five NFL quarterbacks that included Peyton Manning and his recently retired brother, Eli.

Lahiri had four birdies against five bogeys and was T-95, while Atwal had one birdie, two bogeys and one double.

There are three courses in the rotation with Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula.

He led by two shots to par over Patrick Cantlay (Spyglass) and Chase Seiffert (Pebble Beach), who each had a 6-under 66.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson, whose third-place finish in Saudi Arabia last week was his best result in a year, was a bit disappointed with his 68 at Spyglass as he drove well.

Dustin Johnson had a 69 at Spyglass, while Jordan Spieth checked in at 70.

Among those at 5-under par were Charley Hoffman, who holed out from the fairway for eagle on No. 4 at Spyglass.
