The last couple games have meant a little more to Grant Nelson.

After injuring his knee against Omaha in January, Nelson missed just four games despite initial fears being it was much more serious.

"I thought it was ACL, that's what the trainer was saying there so, I was scared instantly," Nelson said. "Steph told me about 3-4 weeks but I knew that I could come back sooner so I just worked hard."

Tom Hoge's first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am might be his best opening round of his career. He put up a nine-under 63, including six straight birdies on his final nine holes.
