Does anyone own the West Coast portion of the Tour schedule like Phil Mickelson? After capping off a brilliant wire-to-wire win last week with his RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver in Scottsdale, Lefty is teeing it up as the defending champion at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. The Callaway staffer is already in great shape thanks to a solid opening round on Thursday, and he’s looking to make it back-to-back wins at Pebble.
As you might remember, Phil shot an incredible final round 64 at this event last year to win by three shots. He rolled in clutch putts, carded birdies in bunches and hit 13 of 14 fairways that Sunday. Now with a swing that looks dialed in, a driver that he loves and a complete all-around game that’s the best thing going on Tour, Phil should be in contention this weekend.
On the European Tour, Branden Grace is playing as the defending champion at the Joburg Open. He won this event last year on the way to four European Tour wins in 2012 and five wins around the world. Grace has played his way up to 29th in the official World Golf Rankings and he’s 10th in the current Race to Dubai standings. The Callaway Staff Pro is playing an X Hot Pro Driver (8.5°), X Hot Pro Fairway Wood, X Forged Irons and a HEX Black Tour Ball.
