A visibly relaxed Day fired a six-under-par 65 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club to sit just one shot off a two-way tie for the first-round lead held by Americans Scott Langley and Brian Gay, who each shot 64 also at Monterey.

The heavy rain of the past week ensured that all players competed under a "preferred lie" rule and with 85 players in the now 155-player field breaking par.

In contrast to Potter Jr, Mickelson was naturally delighted with his efforts and in an event he's been attending since 1995.

Adam Scott says changes made during the past two years are beginning to pay off as he eyes a return to the winner's circle.

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

"I think it's a big factor-you don't know how it's all going to play out, but I think that it's important to get off to a good start", he said. He played it off the beach back to the fairway, hit 7-iron to 10 feet and made the putt for a 69.

Phil Mickelson hit all 13 fairways for the first time since 1998 as the five-time major champion dazzled in Pebble Beach on Thursday. And so there's an emotional tie to this place. "I'm in a good place now". Mickelson is not, though he has won more majors of now active players than anyone other than Tiger Woods.

"I have the honour to play all three courses here and, just because of such lovely scenery, I couldn't even focus on where my ball was going", Choi said of Pebble Beach Golf Links, which is set on the famed Monterey Peninsula.

"I didn't start golf until I was in my late 20s, so I didn't take any lessons growing up".

Best of the strong British contingent was Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Scotland's Martin Laird each shooting four-under par scores. The Pebble triumph also was the second of Tiger's nine wins for the 2000 season, which included the first three legs of the "Tiger Slam" - the U.S. Open (also played at Pebble Beach that year, a major Woods won by a record 15 strokes), Open Championship and PGA Championship.

"I feel like my game's trending the right direction and sometimes that means results are coming soon", Spieth told reporters Wednesday.

"I didn't hit myself, I didn't fall down getting out of the rocks down there - it was a little slippery", Snedeker said. "I like playing in bad weather".
