PGA Tour Brunch: R-3 at Pebble Beach
@PGATourBrunch Review/Preview from 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Notebook:
Jordan Spieth holds a one-stroke lead for his first 36-hole lead/co-lead on tour since the 2017 The Northern Trust. Spieth is 6-for-11 in his PGA Tour career with the 36-hole lead/co-lead, including 1-for-2 here at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Patrick Cantlay, 18-hole leader carded a 1-over (73) at Spyglass Hill after tying Pebble Beach course record in the first round. He is among three players T-4.
Daniel Berger recorded his 24th consecutive score of par or better, the longest active streak on tour. Berger had a streak of 32 similar rounds during the 2019-20 season which ended in (R1) of the 2020 Memorial. Berger has only one bogey through 36 holes, the fewest in the current field.
Phil Mickelson shot an 80, his highest score on the PGA Tour since the 2018 U.S. Open and only the 10th time in his career to card an 80 or higher.
Scoring: The (R-1) scores at Pebble Beach were (front nine) 34.756, (back nine) 35.500 to average 70.256 while Spyglass Hill played: (front) 36.167 (back nine) 36.231 for 72.397 average.
In R-2: Pebble Beach (front nine) 35.156, (back nine) 37.104 to average two strokes higher than Thursday at 72.260. Over at Spyglass, Friday’s (front nine) 36.564, and the (back nine) 36.615 for an average of 73.179.
Cumulative (after the two opening rounds): Pebble Beach played to 71.252 and Spyglass a slightly tougher 72.788.
Tee It Up: Players will tee-off at 11:14am (ET)/8:14am (local) on the links of Pebble Beach. Spyglass is no longer being utilized.
On No. 1, Hank Lebioda, Sebastian Cappelen, and Ben Taylor will head out while on No. 10, Peter Uihlien, Kevin Streelman, and Tim Wilkinson will tee-it-up. There’s not a William Hill odds factor on who will be first to tee-it-up on the 19th hole! We’ll make our own line: Will it be @johnmaginnes (2-to-1) or @bkatrek (3-to-1) On Tap?
