Rory McIlroy makes a bright start to his PGA Tour season

Rory McIlroy makes a bright start to his PGA Tour season

Three-time major victor and American star Jordan Spieth had a birdie and a bogey to be even par following his 72 while Major champions Adam Scott and Ernie Els struggled after the pair both posted rounds of 77 to be five over heading into the second round.

Beau Hossler is continuing a good run of form in the beginning months of the PGA Tour season.

Even more impressive was the fact that he brought it on the toughest track of the three course rotation, with rounds at Monterrey Peninsula and the iconic Pebble Beach still to follow.

They are playing the first three rounds with Rory McIlroy and his father, Gerry.

He calmly rolled in an eight-foot birdie putt on the par-five first to get off to the flawless start playing alongside the recognisable face of Phil Mickelson.

The other pro in the group is Phil Mickelson, who was 2 over par through 11 holes but rallied to make five birdies over the last 7 to shoot 69.

The World No.8 dropped his second shot of the day at the 16th, much to his frustration, but his round ended on a positive note when he rolled in a birdie putt on the last to complete a solid 68.

World No.1 Dustin Johnson got his tournament off to a flyer with a 67 at Spyglass Hill placing him at five under, and he shares sixth alongside leading Australian Cameron Percy (66, Monterey Peninsula Country Club). "There's nothing stopping me from playing a pretty full schedule".

"And I know with the right dedication and working on the right things that could be achievable for me".

Elwewhere Graeme McDowell - back at the scene of his greatest triumph, when he won the 2010 US Open - opened with a one-under-par 71 at Pebble Beach.

Suffragette stories come out of the shadows 100 years on
The Anti-Suffrage League was founded in 1908 by Mary Humphrey Ward, with support from two men: Lord Curzon and William Cremer. In 1903, the more militant Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) was established by Emmeline Pankhurst.


But then to compound his putting woes, McIlroy three-putted his 16th and 17th holes before signing for a three-0ver par 74 to drop back to one-under par.

Seamus Power finished the first day on one over with Padraig Harrington already adrift on four over. Also playing is David Duval (2001 British Open), Mike Weir (2003 Masters) and Angel Cabrera (2007 U.S. Open, 2009 Masters).

Day was in good touch for his opening round.

Throw in three courses to learn, some years when the weather can be brutal and bumpy greens and there are many players who have been apt to overlook its beauty.

Day was speaking on the eve of the storied Pebble Beach Pro-Am, an event that was nearly withering on the vine a few years ago, but which begins on Thursday with a field that includes the world's three top-ranked players and several former number ones.
