Red numbers multiplying at Pebble Beach

With the morning grouping well under way, we're starting to see more and more red numbers on the scoreboard before anyone has finished nine holes. Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen has the lead with three birdies in his first six holes. Kjeldsen has three wins on the European Tour, and it's interesting to note that he's only 5-7, 144 pounds, showing Pebble Beach will let the little guys compete.

In the group at 2-under is Japan's Toru Taniguchi, who is 5-6, 155 pounds. He's tied with italy's Edoardo Molinari. Jim Furyk also has moved into the 2-under grouping through six holes.

There's a large group at 1-under, including Padraig Harrington, who was in trouble all the way down the 580-yard, par-5 14th hole. His drive went into the left rough, and his second stayed in the left rough and third failed to reach the green. But the fourth cozied up to the cup allowing Harrington to save par. Phil Mickelson missed a short birdie putt of about six feet to remain at even par through five holes.
