Kang Seong-hoon (36) and Ahn Byeong-hun (32) tied for 47th with 2 under par, catching an eagle each on the first day of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (total prize money of 9 million dollars) of the PGA Tour.

Kang Seong-hun, who participated in four tournaments without a ticket to the first part of the tour this season, missed all the cuts, so he desperately needs top grades in this tournament.
