PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Feb. 8, 2013) -- Scott Langley having opened with a 5-under 65 at Monterey, it was a good day for him and his amateur, Doug Mackenzie, a veteran at this event and a scratch handicap. They combined to shoot 11 under to set the pro-am pace.
Wayne Gretzky clearly had his hand in a lot of scoring, because despite Dustin Johnson’s 3-over round, their team shot 9-under 61 and sits in a tie for third.
If we are to have a repeat of the “Cindrella Story” of two years ago – you know, Bill Murray winning this thing – there will have to be some magic the next two days. Murray and D.A. Points, with whom the actor won in 2011, opened with a 5-under at Monterey Peninsula, but that’s good for only a share of 59th.
Of the eight best scores, four were shot at Monterey Peninsula (Knox, 64; Imada, Langley, Greg Owen, 65s), three at Pebble Beach (Mahan, 66; Matt Every and Ted Potter Jr., 67s), and Seung-Yul Noh had the lowest at Spyglass Hill (67).
