Romo using Spieth, Woods hand-me-downs at Pebble

"I may have done it before, but I don't ever recall doing it".

Tony Romo is teeing it up again this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

"History was made today", Mickelson said boldly.

Brian Gay and Scott Langley each had a 64 at Monterey for a one-shot lead to par on the three-course rotation Thursday. He's (theoretically) motivated, having lost his PGA Tour card last season.

Johnson, the 2009 and 2010 champion, opened as the heavy favorite to win the $7.6 million purse, but Mickelson has had the most career success on the course, winning four times. It's always jarring to watch ams and pros in the same event because it makes you realize just how good the pros are when they hit shots like this one. Listed behind him are Matthew Fitzpatrick, Russell Knox, Martin Laird and Graeme McDowell, but I don't foresee a big week coming for any of them, either, though Fitz could be an interesting punt in his maiden voyage to Pebble.

Former world No.1s Jason Day and Adam Scott headline a nine-strong Australian contingent this week while two-time Pebble Beach victor Johnson and five-time major victor Phil Mickelson are also in the field.

Patriots' Harmon says he won't visit White House
Trump has previously touted his friendship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft . In an interview after Sunday night's game, Harmon told TMZ , "They don't want me in the White House ".

The players each play at Pebble Beach, Monterey and Spyglass Hill over the first three days before the final round takes place at Pebble Beach on Sunday.

"Very important, just to get the confidence up", he said.

Whether or not this is the week Spieth finds the missing ingredient, he thinks his game is moving in the right direction.

Hole of the day: After almost dumping his tee shot in the Pacific Ocean, Brandt Snedeker (who has won two of the last six of these tournaments) somehow made birdie from this preposterous position. I don't believe a repeat is in Potter's future since he trails by 17 after 18 holes, but at least he'll get to play through Saturday afternoon. I still don't trust him after last week's 68-75 missed cut (I think we could see the same thing this week), but for one day he really shined at Monterey.

Meadow (27) notched four birdies in a three-under 70 at the Creek Course in her first event back on the LPGA Tour to trail England's Felicity Johnson by five shots.
