Rory unravels as nightmare five-putt leaves him well adrift

Dustin Johnson and Beau Hossler are tied for the lead at 12 under par at the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am following Friday's second round across multiple courses on California's Monterey Peninsula. After losing to Gary Woodland in a playoff in Arizona on Sunday, Reavie came right back with a 5-under 67 at Pebble Beach on Thursday. Missing will be his sidekick, Wayne Gretzky, puffing on his cigar and keeping it light. "Hit a attractive shot in there".

Johnson said he prefers tough conditions on Sunday, and he might get them as the wind is supposed to pick up on Sunday afternoon to complement some nippy 55-degree temperatures. The wind was a little bit tricky, and I just got on the wrong side of holes (on my bogeys).

'I will have played a lot of tournament golf leading up to it.

Potter shot a 62 at Monterey Peninsula and left wondering how much better it could have been.

"It's fun to be in the mix and fun to be now playing my last two rounds at Pebble Beach". He slapped it all the way to a 2-under 70 with birdies at two of his last four holes.

"So, in hitting a lot of fairways I was able to make a lot of birdies".

They were at 14-under 201, and with more wind in the forecast - compared with virtually none earlier in the week - this could have plenty of possibilities.

If he can find a way to earn a victory this weekend, he would match Mark O'Meara's record of five wins at the AT&T Pro-Am. Pebble Beach hasn't had a playoff since 2008, when Steve Lowery defeated Singh.




For Gerry McIlory, who worked three jobs at times as his son aspired to golf greatness, there is not much better.

"Well, you got to go play", Romo said in astory by Mike McCallister on pgatour.com. "But all in all, the game's pretty sharp". I hit good putts, they just didn't go in.

Johnson shot a seven-under 64 on the par-71 Monterey Peninsula, while Hossler carded a five-under 67 on Spyglass Hill at the event using three different courses. He'll be in the third-to-last group in Round 4 with Patrick Rodgers (with Rodgers' amateur partner).

Three shots back on one under are Dunne and McDowell, which was good enough of a piece of tied 69 on a crowded leaderboard. He will play for the first time of the week at Pebble Beach tomorrow. Rory McIlroy made his tournament debut with a scrappy finish to salvage a 68.

On 29 holes since then, Mickelson has no bogeys and 11 birdies.

Johnson hit five birdies on the front nine and followed up with three on the back nine, the only blot in his book being a bogey on the par-4 15.

Rumford, who led by two strokes after the opening round, shot a par 72.

That stretched his lead to three shots at the time.
