Wicked day of wind and rain at Peb­ble Beach

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

PEB­BLE BEACH, Calif. - The AT&T Peb­ble Beach Pro-Am showed its mean side Fri­day in high wind, rain and still no short­age of en­ter­tain­ment. Even mov­ing the tee times up an hour to avoid storms didn’t al­low the open­ing round to fin­ish be­fore the greens held too much wa­ter to play. Se­ung-Yul Noh, Joel Dah­men and Rick Lamb each fin­ished at Spy­glass Hill at 4-un­der 68. One shot be­hind was Jor­dan Spi­eth, still with two holes to play at Mon­terey Penin­sula. Spi­eth and Dustin John­son caught the brunt of what amounted to a four-club wind along the coast. John­son hit a driver, 3-wood and 4-iron into the 599-yard 12th hole and still didn’t reach the green. Asked when that ever hap­pened on a par 5, the U.S. Open cham­pion said, “Never.”
