With former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell leading the way, Pinehurst No. 2 gave up more birdies than expected in the early going Thursday. Taking advantage of a thick cloud cover that greeted the morning starters, McDowell shot a 2-under 68 and was tied for the lead with Kevin Na. Six other players, including 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, opened with 69s on the Donald Ross masterpiece that has undergone a drastic makeover to restore its rustic look, with...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-580603802014-06-12T23:24:37.744-06:00" id="#license-2014-06-12T23:24:37.744-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

He did just that Thursday. Mickelson shot a 3-under 67, birdieing three of his final four holes in windy conditions before a thunderstorm softened up TPC Southwind. It was his first round in the 60s since the third round at the Wells Fargo Championship. He hadn’t shot below 70 since.
