While Johnson compiled a ho-hum two-under-par 70 at Pebble Beach, Potter flirted with a sub-60 round at nearby Monterey Peninsula, one of three courses used for the event.

The leading duo were two strokes in front of Julian Suri, who carded a four-under 67 at Monterey Peninsula to get to 10-under and Troy Merritt, who shot a five-under 67 at Spyglass Hill.

Looking ahead, the professional portion of the tournament should be the more competitive battle over the final two days, barring a collapse from Fitzgerald and Streelman.

The field play one round each at three different courses, before the cut is made after 54 holes for the final round at Pebble Beach.

"I am having fun, " said Mickelson, who finished 36 holes at 134, 9 under par. Johnson played with his father-in-law, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, and helped him sink a stellar putt on hole one.

Cameron Percy struggled to get out of first gear and signed for a 72 at Pebble Beach to remain at five under, while countryman Aaron Baddeley is a shot back at four under while playing his back nine. His six birdies Thursday included one on each of Spyglass' par-5s.

Dustin Johnson and Beau Hossler were tied for the lead entering the third round of the PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2018 today (Saturday, Feb. 10) in California. Phil Mickelson's 6-under round Friday pulled him within three shots of the lead in a group that includes world No. 2 Jon Rahm, Jason Day, Steve Stricker and first-round co-leader Kevin Streelman.

Among those who couldn't take advantage was defending champion Jordan Spieth. He will play for the first time of the week at Pebble Beach tomorrow.

A highlight was his long, bomb for birdie at the 15 hole, but the Australian was solid all day and made six birdies. Even more so considering he missed out on a playoff at this event just two years ago.

Hossler backed up his opening-round 65 with a bogey-free Friday. His only other experience at Pebble Beach was a missed cut in the 2010 U.S. Open.

"His short game is fantastic", Spieth said in astory on Playing alongside his father, Gerry, in the pro-am, McIlroy posted rounds of 68-74-72 to miss the 4-under number by three. Phil Mickelson, a three-time Pebble victor, is playing for the 23rd time.
