"I may have done it before, but I don't ever recall doing it", a satisfied Mickelson said afterwards.

Former world number one Jordan Spieth is happy with his game heading into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

"History was made today", Mickelson said boldly.

Mickelson, a four-time victor of the tournament, ended the day sharing third place at six-under par and just a shot back of the leading duo of fellow Americans Scott Langley and Brian Gay who each shot 64s also at Monterey.

Leading up to his 2017 victory in California, the American had won eight US PGA Tour titles, including two major championships, on the back of world-class putting performances, particularly from outside 20 feet. "This was a day that we had great weather, the courses were very scorable, you need to take advantage".

Phil Mickelson hit every fairway at Monterey Peninsula Country Club Thursday in the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on his way to a 6-under 65. He also shot 69 at Pebble, and don't say I didn't try and give him to you at 50-1 before the tournament started!

A friendly, needling inquisitor also reminded Mickelson that the soft, wet nature of the course made fairways play wider than they typically do at the Monterey Peninsula.

Day said it was imperative to get off to a good start.

Johnson, the 2009 and 2010 champion, opened as the heavy favorite to win the $7.6 million purse, but Mickelson has had the most career success on the course, winning four times.

It was not just Mickelson's driver that was working.

"I've seen a lot of improvement with my putter over the last six months", he said. I don't believe a repeat is in Potter's future since he trails by 17 after 18 holes, but at least he'll get to play through Saturday afternoon.

Gay made rapid strides up the leaderboard when he reeled off five consecutive birdies and added three more over the last five holes to post a 64 which was later matches by Langley, with both leaders making their scores at the Monterey layout.

However the 13-time US PGA Tour victor responded with three straight birdies before the turn and added two more on his back nine.
