Justin Rose has a day to remember in Pebble debut

Justin Rose, a U.S. Open champion and the No. 7 player in the world, shot a 6-under 66 his first time playing Spyglass Hill and spent a gorgeous day listening to the fans call out his name. Except they weren't calling for him, and he knew it.

His partner in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is Justin Timberlake.

"I've never seen a demographic like that on a golf course where you're sort of running the gauntlet from one tee to the other. Everyone was under 21 and 80 percent female," Rose said. "I said, 'OK, that moved the needle a little bit there.'"

Rose did OK himself Thursday.

He got off to a strong start is his debut at the Pebble Beach...
