PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on U.S. Open at Pebble Beach (all times local):
Phil Mickelson will tee off in his 28th U.S. Open, the only major he hasn’t won, and he doesn’t need to be reminded that his chances are dwindling to get the last leg of the career Grand Slam.
He turns 49 on Sunday.
Mickelson is the only player in the 156-man field making his fourth U.S. Open start at Pebble Beach. His first one was in 1992, when he made his professional debut with a 68 and was two shots out of the lead after the first round. The next day, Mickelson shot 81 and missed the cut.
The last time Mickelson competed at Pebble Beach was in February, when he won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a record-tying fifth time.
Sam Saunders has hit the first…
