Golf is hard: Francesco Molinari hits a ground ball off the first tee at Pebble Beach


The first tee can be a nervous place. The first tee at Pebble Beach? Yeah, that adds another layer of nerves.

But the professionals, especially someone like Francesco Molinari, who has a major championship, aren’t like the rest of us.

Well, maybe they are …

For the record, his opening shot went just 70 yards, not making it past the forward tee box. He scrambled his way to an opening bogey, avoiding a big number to start his third round at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Molinari, the 2018 Open champion, entered Saturday at 5 under, 7 shots behind 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.
