Pebble Beach, Rd. 1 Review

Two unheralded players sit atop the leaderboard at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in Carmel, California.

Robert Garrigus, playing at Spyglass Hill, and Dustin Johnson, starting out at Pebble beach, both shot 65, and stand at seven under par for the tournament.

Chasing them are Charlie Hoffman, Vaughn Taylor, and Rich Beem, who all sit at six under par.

It hasn't been a great start for non-winners this year - Geoff Ogilvy, Zach Johnson, Kenny Perry and Nick Watney, all winners of PGA Tour events, have claimed titles this year, with just one first time winner, Pet Perez, finally getting his.

We'll see if a non-winner can break through this week at Pebble, but it's not likely. Since it IS a Pro-Am, the rounds are long and the fans always jostle to try and get the best view of Kevin Costner or Bill Murray.
