Phil Mickelson called himself "an idiot" today. Prior to the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the 42-time PGA Tour champion switched drivers. "I hit a few shots that I haven't hit," he explained afterward. Not that it was all bad. Mickelson still posted a 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill. And yes, he'll have a different driver in the bag when he plays Monterey Peninsula CC tomorrow.
