  • Rory Mc Ilroy putting meltdown saw him go from an eagle opportunity to a double bogey

Hossler backed up his opening-round 65 with a bogey-free Friday.

He said it's important for him to get into the hunt early this year.

Andrew (Beef) Johnston shot 73-76 to be 4 over, and missed the cut, which was par.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson gained a share of the lead by carding a 64 Friday at Monterey Peninsula CC, and his 12-under total ties him with first-round co-leader Beau Hossler. "I would say that I'm driving it well, but I'm probably not quite as good as I was when on those three wins, but everything else feels like it's really good".

Aaron Wise also had a 65. "But if you play well, you can birdie and score low on all three [courses]". Troy Merritt (67 on Spyglass Hill) and Julian Suri (67 on Monterey Peninsula) are two shots back in a tie for third. He won at Pebble Beach in 1995.

Phil Mickelson is tied for fifth going into the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

"A couple of messy holes coming in", he said.

Hossler has not made a bogey this week. It should make for an interesting weekend of colorful tournament golf at a great locale with wonderful weather in the forecast.

Westwood said his main priority was to finish in the top 24, rather than put pressure on himself to get a top-eight seeding. "So all in all pretty pleased".

The 33-year-old SC native is right back in contention this week after posting the day's best round Friday.

Johnson was playing in a group that included defending champion Jordan Spieth.

McIlroy and new caddy, Harry Diamond then broke out in smiles holing his 48th birdie of 2018 with the shot of his round and spinning his approach shot at his 10th to just three feet. He was at 72 and, after grabbing lunch, was headed out to the practice green for some work. Speith is partnering with country music's Jake Owen.

The competition is being played over three courses in California - the 72 par Pebble Beach Golf Links, Monterey Peninsula Golf Club, which is a 71 par, and Spyglass Hill, another 72 shot track. First contested in 1937, original tournament host Bing Crosby put together a two-person pro-am format for the leading golf professionals of the day who were paired with Bing's friends from the world of music, theater and the movies.

While Gretzky added another birdie on the par-5 seventh and a clutch par on 16 for birdie, Johnson was overpowering the seaside and tree-lined course with six birdies en route to a 5-under-par 67. If that's the case, he might have a problem.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am wraps up on Sunday. "I played the two par-5s in 2 over the front nine and if I played them 2 under it's a whole different round".
