Veteran Kevin Streelman and young gun Beau Hossler are tied at the top of the leader-board after the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Streelman and Hossler both fired -7 under par rounds today to set the pace.

Streelman played Spyglass Hill today and ran the table with 7 birdies and 11 pars. One clean scorecard that’s for sure!!

Hossler played Pebble Beach and did the same thing. 7 birds including 5 on the back nine for a beautiful 65 and a tie for the first round lead.

These two are really setting a strong pace and giving the rest of the field something to shoot for.

We have a 3 way tie for third place at -6 under par. Leading this threesome is Matt Kuchar.

Matt played Spyglass Hill and only had one bogey to go with his 7 pars.

Really nice round only problem was his bogey on the par 3 hole #3.

Missing the green on a par three is tough but when it ends up in the native area that they have there, well it can be tough to get the club face on the ball and rough to get it on the green.

Aaron Wise from South Africa and Julian Suri round out the threesome.

Wise has 16 PGA Tour starts but Suri is making only his 4th start of his PGA Tour career.

Watch for these 2……they really showed signs of greatness today.

Some of the big names are faring good. Dustin Johnson and Paul Casey are both -5 under par and tied for 6th place currently.

Everybody on Hilton Head Island is excited because Dustin Johnson has committed to play the RBC Heritage in April. It is the week after the Masters tournament.

Rory McIlroy shot a -4 under par round today at Spyglass Hills to tie for 16th.

Be on the lookout for some top names from the sports and entertainment worlds playing this week as it is a Pro-Am tournament.

Bill Murray always makes us laugh. If fact yesterday Nick Faldo was caddying for Clint Eastwood…..can’t get better than that.

Enjoy the golf this weekend it will be exciting!
