  • WGT GOLF UPDATE: Wi Leads AT&T Pro-Am by Three; Woods Only Six Behind

    10 Feb 2012

    Challenging weather conditions today of wind and rain effected player performance during the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament, yet South Korean Charlie Wi still leads the group by 3 shots. In fact, Wi was the only leader to shoot under-par today, following his 61 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club (MPCC) with a 3-under 69 at Pebble Beach.

    Vijay Singh vaulted into a tie for third place with his second straight 4-under 68, and he will play the MPCC golf course on Saturday.

    Despite the weather, Phil Mickelson tied for the best golf round of the day, hitting a 5-under 65 at MPCC to reach 7-under and a share of eighth. He will join the celebrity field at Pebble Beach on Saturday.

    Tiger Woods appeared to hurt himself on the eighth hole at MPCC. It turned out to be just a "stinger" and the pain did not last long, nor did it affect the rest of the round. Woods is tied for 17th at 6-under after shooting his second straight 68, this time at MPCC. He will play Pebble Beach, where he has a career scoring average of 68.6 in nine previous rounds at this event.

    Defending champ D.A. Points matched Mickelson's 5-under 65 at MPCC to reach 5-under for the tournament.
