PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Scott Langley and his amateur partner, Doug Mackenzie, combined for an 11-under 59 at Monterey Peninsula to lead the pro-am portion after the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Mackenzie, who plays to a 3 handicap, is a business executive who sits on the Monterey Peninsula Foundation board of directors.
One shot behind is the team of Brandt Snedeker and amateur Toby Wilt, who plays to a 7 handicap. That duo shot 60, also at Monterey Peninsula.
The Langley and Snedeker teams will each play Spyglass Hill in Friday's second round.
Among the large group tied for third: Jason Day and his partner, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh; Dustin Johnson and his partner, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky; Patrick Cantley and his partner, surfer Kelly Slater; and Jeff Maggert and his partner, country singer Clay Walker.
POST-SUPER BOWL: According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Harbaugh had a relaxing day on the course.
Asked if he was competitive on the course, Harbaugh told the newspaper: "No, I'm not good enough to get upset about it."
CONDOLEEZZA'S ROUND: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, among the newest members at Augusta National, beaned a spectator on the sixth hole.
Rice started strong but was clearly rattled after she hit a woman in the head on an errant approach shot on the sixth hole. She faded before the turn and combined with pro Jason Bohn for a 2-under 70.
"Somebody asked me, 'How did it compare to diplomacy?'" Rice said while walking off the 18th green. "And I said, 'Well, I know how to do diplomacy, I'm not so sure about the golf course.'"
