Hank Leboida the Early Leader at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am
Hoping to add another accolade to his PGA TOUR resume, Lebioda got off to a strong start with six birdies in an eight-hole stretch Thursday at the Shore course of Monterey Peninsula, finishing with an 8-under 63 and leading by one stroke after the inaugural round.
The day was mostly sunny, with few winds, and he had the slight advantage of finishing before gusts became strong enough to make flagsticks bend and hats fly away when players tried to putt.
” This would be eight courses in three weeks for us,” said Lebioda, who missed the cut at his last two tour events.

Phil Mickelson stirs up a heated debate among Twitter users about the PGA Tour and LIV Golf
Golf superstar Mickelson, the six-time major champion who has been a part of the nearly one-year-old, Saudi-backed LIV, first responded to a comment proposing that LIV organize a team event with the PGA Tour. His tweet prompted over 600 responses as of Thursday night and he answered a total of 14 inquiries in a few hours.
“It sounds great,” Mickelson tweeted, “but we would dominate them so soundly and it would be over so quick that tv would have to fill an hour of dead time. That’s why it’s not happening at this time”
