McIlroy is competing in the pro-am event with his father Gerry and will have four-time Pebble Beach victor Phil Mickelson for company over the next three days at Spyglass Hill, Monterey Peninsula Country Club and Pebble Beach.

In the case of Mr. McIlroy, it certainly helps to have a multi-millionaire son whose golf prowess is well documented.

It is the first time McIlroy has entered the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and he is partnered with his father.

Rory McIlroy's woes with the putter have always been documented. It's been such a good week so far.

Other celebs say it's because golf isn't usually a game they play in front of a crowd.

Recent Australian victor Cameron Davis (73, Pebble Beach) and Stuart Appleby (73, Spyglass) are one over, while Sydney native Matt Jones (74, Pebble Beach) is two over. McIlroy played alongside Phil Mickelson, who shot 31 on the back nine at Spyglass for a 69.

"It was a fun day and I just love Monterrey Peninsula where the fairways are wide and they feel pretty easy to hit", said Mickelson. He is playing the tournament for the 22nd time. Even the bad weather days you come to enjoy and appreciate the challenge of this place.

Round 2 is indeed underway, and here is a current look at the top of the leaderboard.

Mickelson's amateur partner is Jimmy Dunne III, senior managing principal for Sandler O'Neill & Partners, an investment banking firm in NY.
