PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Everyone has teed off in the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am but no one is going extremely low.
A pair of Texans, Bob Estes and Jimmy Walker, are leading at 3 under. Estes has played six holes at Spyglass while Walker is through three at Monterey Peninsula, starting on the back nine and making an eagle at the 10th hole and a birdie at No. 11.
Estes is playing in his second event of the season after tying for 16th at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. On the other hand, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is Walker's fifth straight start with his best finish a tie for fourth at the Farmers Insurance Open.
A group of nine players are tied at 2 under, including Patrick Reed, Brendon Todd, Peter Tomasulo, Joe Durant, Seung-yul Noh, Lee Williams, Greg Owen, Kelly Kraft and Web.com Tour Player of the Year, Casey Wittenberg.
The skies are cloudy and scattered showers are expected to move in at midday. Another low pressure system enters the area overnight and brings a better chance of showers -- and possibly thunderstorms accompanied by hail -- for Friday.
