Hiroshi Iwata leads at Pebble. Claim to fame: Owns lowest score (with 26 others) in major championship history. Shot 63 at last year's PGA.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

First bogey of the day for Phil Mickelson. Comes at the par-5 12th hole. Well, at least the nearby waves are still pretty.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Phil Mickelson just hit a shot 6 feet. But in fairness, it was completely under a bush and that's all he was trying to do.

Phil Mickelson has made 529 previous PGA Tour starts entering this week, with a best single-round score of 60. If he plays the final seven holes at Monterey Peninsula CC in 5-under today, he'll beat it. That's right -- Lefty is going low. So low that the magical number of 59 could be in play if he stays hot down the stretch. There have only been six prior scores of 59 in PGA Tour history.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

In 529 previous PGA Tour starts, Phil Mickelson's best score is 60. Needs to play his last eight holes in 5-under to beat that. Just sayin'.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Phil Mickelson tied for the lead at Pebble. Looking for his fourth win here. Would put him one behind Mark O'Meara for the all-time lead.

Following his opening-round 4-under 68 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am yesterday, Phil Mickelson called himself "an idiot" for switching drivers before the round. Wonder what he'll call himself today, as he's already birdied four of his first five holes at Monterey Peninsula CC, moving him into early possession of solo third place on the leaderboard.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Yesterday: Phil Mickelson shoots 68, calls himself an idiot. Today: Phil Mickelson birdies 3 of first 4, moves into third place.

Caddies DO NOT want money from the golfers. The PGA Tour proudly announces giving away over $1 BILLION to charity since 2005 ($2.14 billion total). In 2014, using $4 million for a caddie benefits fund, charities would have received $136.5 million.

The eyes of the golf world will be fixed upon Monterey Peninsula CC today. The most underrated course in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am three-course rotation, MPCC will his the star-studded side of the draw today, with big names from both the pro and am list competing on the course. That includes both Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson, who opened with scores of 71 and 68, respectively.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Chez Reavie was obviously pretty nervous after sleeping on the lead. Just holed out for eagle on his second hole -- the 11th at Pebble. NBD.
