(AP Photo/Tony Avelar)PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Nick Taylor opened with an eagle, closed with two birdies and made a gorgeous day feel even better with an 8-under 63 at Monterey Peninsula that gave him the lead Thursday in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
The iconic scenery is at Pebble Beach, especially when the surf turns a turquoise hue under so much sunshine.
“A nice start,” Taylor said, referring to his 4-iron that set up eagle and the 63 that matched his low round on the tour.
But we were very relaxed today, joked all day, and I felt like the mood was great.”He led by two shots to par over Patrick Cantlay (Spyglass) and Chase Seiffert (Pebble Beach), who each had a 6-under 66.
“But I shot a 4-under par round and it's not going to hurt me.”The hurt belonged to David Duval, whose scorecard contained a 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
