The PGA Tour’s west coast swing continues this week in the Northern California paradise that is Pebble Beach, home of the longtime Tour staple, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The Tour players and their celebrity playing partners will play Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course over the next three days before a cut is made and the final round is contested at Pebble.
Here’s everything you missed from Thursday’s Round 1 action.
Nick Taylor leads
Canadian pro Nick Taylor leads by two shots through one round, after turning in a perfect scorecard that included six birdies and an eagle for an opening round of eight-under-par 63 at MPCC.
Taylor has one career Tour victory on his resume, the 2015 Sanderson Farms Championship.
Who else is in contention?
Patrick Cantlay and Chase Seiffert are T2 at six under par, and eight players are T4 at four under par, including Max Homa, Charley Hoffman and Harold Varner III.

Jason Day also shot four under par (67) at MPCC, and Dustin Johnson is three under par after an opening 69 at Spyglass.
