Dustin Johnson's past struggles at Monterey Peninsula behind him

Clint Eastwood left talks with Bill Murray during the 3M Celebrity Challenge on Wednesday Feb. 7 2018 at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Carmel Calif

The top 24 after three rounds play a series of six-hole shootouts in the event co-sanctioned by three tours: European, Asian and PGA of Australia.

The 28-year-old had a five-putt on his Friday round to card a disappointing 74 and followed up with a par 72 to go one-under for the tournament in California.

"I'm in a really good position here starting the weekend", said Johnson. He also led into the final round of the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach before finishing 8th.

Streelman's putting skills were prompted by consistency. He said the issue is that he has his hands too far forward and is hitting the ball into the turf.

Hossler's round included more than 100 feet of successful birdie putts. "He's walking in putts from 15 feet at home".

Sharing sixth alongside world No.1 Dustin Johnson, who shot a 67 at Spyglass Hill, Percy admits he was rusty.

"This environment here, you have to embrace the fact that it's going to be a slow day, it's going to take a little while, but enjoy the people you're with". He came close in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last November before a final-round 73 dropped him to seventh.

"I think it's just a comfort level", said Hossler about his new PGA Tour status.

Troy Merritt (67 SH) and Julian Suri (67 MP) are tied for third at 10-under. The second is that the tournament accommodated his wish to play with his dad. Defending titlist Jordan Spieth, ranked No. 3, had a 72 at Spyglass Hill.

Rory McIlroy addresses a press conference ahead of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Hossler is a former top amateur into his second season as a professional and his first on the PGA Tour.

"We have played in the European equivalent of Dunhill Links a few times before and we have done well at it, but this is a little bit different", he noted. "And didn't really make anything, but all (together) a pretty solid day. pretty easy day".

Making matters worse, McIlroy was within four shots of the lead when he started the fifth hole.

Although Johnson is the favorite given his track record and strong form, Mickelson's 65 on Friday created an opportunity for his first win since the 2013 Open Championship.

Three shots back on one under are Dunne and McDowell, which was good enough of a piece of tied 69 on a crowded leaderboard.
