Cejka makes rare albatross

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – No, your eyes are not deceiving you.

Alex Cejka did start the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a double eagle on the 10th hole at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. He had 240 yards for his approach and used a 3-wood.

The albatross has given Cejka a one-stroke lead over his playing partner Kevin Sutherland, who eagled No. 10, and Andres Romero, who is also playing Monterey Peninsula but started on the front nine.

Cejka’s double eagle is the first of 2011 and just the 11th since the start of the 2009 season.
