Hunter Mahan and Russell Knox lead the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with first round scores of -6 under par. Hunter on the Pebble Beach course with a round of 64, and Russell with a 66 at the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula.

Hunter really enjoyed his day, especially when the forecast mid-day rain did not appear;

” I had a good time with my partner, 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. The bag probably weighs 100 pounds right now.”

Russell said he is full of confidence, and playing well, but is limited in his appearances because he finished outside of the top 125 on his rookie year;

“I came in here with a lot of confidence because I feel like I’ve been playing very well. Just haven’t had the chance to play. It was nice to get off to a good start.”

Seung-Yul Noh, playing at Spy Glass Hill carded a  -5 under par round of 67, which could have been even better without the two bogey’s on the last two holes. He was still pleased with his overall score;

“Still a good score. I’m really happy with that.”

Also at 5 under were Scott Langley a 65 at Monterey Peninsula, he is the first graduate of The First Tee program to make it to the PGA TOUR.  Matt Every is also at -5 under par, he sadly had a bogey on his final hole at Pebble Beach for a 67.

This is a complicated tournament, with its three courses and mixed with Professional players and Celebrity amateurs, so anything can happen, especially when you have the caliber of Phil Mickleson and Lee Westwood in the field,

AT&T National at Congressional, third round disrupted by violent storm.

Brendon de Jonge leads the AT&T National after a disrupted and delayed third round at Congressional Country Club. The delay was caused by a violent electrical storm overnight, with winds gusting at 70 mph, breaking ancient trees in half and destroying plant life over the whole course. The public and volunteers were asked to stay away for the day while the grounds people attempted to clear away the debris. The playing area itself was not really affected and after a five-hour delay the tournament third round commenced behind closed doors. A very strange atmosphere for all the competitors, very similar to just playing a practice round, only it was for real.

Brendon spoke about his quiet round, with hardly any spectators;

” There was just no buzz, and it was hard to get the adrenaline going. Kind of felt like you were playing a Tuesday practice round or a qualifier. But I obviously understand why they had to do it. I think we had three today, maybe four for a couple of holes, but then he left us.”

Brendon had a -2 under par round of 69, for a tournament total of -7 under par. Following close behind is Tiger Woods and Bo Van Pelt, who both shot rounds of -4 under par to be  at -6 under par, just one shot adrift of the leader. Joining them at tied for second spot is the young South Korean player, Seung-Yul Noh who had a third round score of -2 under par and equal with Tiger and Bo at -6 under par for the tournament. Best round of the day went to Billy Hurley 111 with his -5 under par, 66, which moved him back up the leaderboard in a tie for fifth place, with a score of  -6 under par, a good recovery from yesterday’s average round.

Tiger also commented on the lack of people, although he drew the largest crowd, about 100 fans;

“I’ve played in front of people like this, but not generally for an 18-hole competitive round. Whether we have thousands of people or we have a small handful of people out there, it doesn’t change the execution of the shot. What does change is when I hole a shot like I did on 6, it’s not going to be as loud today as it normally is. The gallery wasn’t something I was thinking about, I was just trying to play. This was a Saturday round. It was a chance to play myself into a tournament.”

Bo Van Pelt had a message for Tiger;

“I told Tiger that was a Bo Van Pelt crowd, so I was used to that. I was very comfortable with 10 or 15 people watching me play golf.”
