Ahead of this week's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Australian said four-time Major victor McIlroy possesses all the tools to dominate the sport in a manner similar to Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and early 2000s but raised doubt over 'how much he wants it'. "And didn't really make anything, but all (together) a pretty solid day. pretty easy day".

He made six more pars to make the turn at one under, and immediately set about lowering the score with a stunning eagle on the Par 4 first hole, Lowry's tenth hole to play in his round.

Moreover in his only other PGA Tour start this wraparound season, he tied for second in the WGC-HSBC Champions, where he squandered a six-shot lead through 54 holes.

"I am having fun, " said Mickelson, who finished 36 holes at 134, 9 under par. With so much sunshine Thursday across the Monterey Peninsula, that was inevitable.

This is the first time McIlroy has played in America for almost five months, and his season debut showed that he's shaken off all his injury concerns from the off-season.

"I had two chances to win golf tournaments and I didn't", McIlroy said of his performances in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.


Rory McIlroy says his determination to become one of the greatest golfers of all time remains as strong as ever after Jason Day raised question marks over his desire.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth managed to get going, shooting a five-under 66 on Monterey Peninsula to be tied for 23rd. That was probably some of the best golf I've played in my career, but parts of the game are just as good.

"Just a lot going on there, so I was glad to get out of there with a five", Hossler said.

McIlroy had shot five birdies and one bogey to leave him four-under after 15 holes of the Spyglass Hill course, before a wayward drive gave him another bogey on the 16th.

"I just kind of settled in", said Mickelson.

The 34-year-old is more than three months removed from surgery to fix his broken right clavicle that kept him out of nine games last season. "It's one of those courses where you can get caught up in looking at some of the views and lose focus, so you gotta remember that you're still playing a tournament".
