PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Victories have been elusive for Phil Mickelson over the past five years, but he has given himself another chance on the Monterey Peninsula, where he will seek a tournament-record-tying fifth victory this weekend at Pebble Beach.

"I feel like there's nothing in my way", McIlroy said. "I want to be one of the best players to ever have played the game when I decide to call it a day".

Day, an 11-time US PGA Tour victor, shares 32nd with a host of players including five time major victor Phil Mickelson.

Johnson's game is built around his driving prowess, ranking first in SG: off-the-tee (gaining 2.225 strokes over the field) and first in SG: total.

"I'm just trying to get back and I got a little on top of it and I was kind of hitting the ball into the ground with my hands pretty far forward, which is the opposite of what my natural tendency has been going back to when I was eight years old".

'I've just got to do the right things, prepare well, go through the right steps on the golf course to get myself into contention.

Ahead of this week's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Australian said four-time Major victor McIlroy possesses all the tools to dominate the sport in a manner similar to Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and early 2000s but raised doubt over 'how much he wants it'.

Among the big names ominously poised were Dustin Johnson (five-under), Rory McIlroy (four-under) and John Rahm (four-under).

McIlroy was four-under through 15 holes before suffering a bogey on the 16th, when his wayward drive finished in a waste area.

After nearly driving the green, the Northern Irishman used his putter from the fringe and stroked the ball to within six feet of the cup, from where he took four putts and probably ended his hopes in the tournament in a matter of seconds.

Johnson also had a three-shot lead that summer at Pebble in the U.S. Open, only to lose it all with a triple bogey on the second hole.
