Fresh of his US PGA Tour victory at Torrey Pines, Day has rocketed up the leaderboard on day two courtesy of five birdies in his first 12 holes - including four in his past five - at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

Troy Merritt (67 SH) and Julian Suri (67 MP) are tied for third at 10-under.

They were at 14-under 201, and with more wind in the forecast - compared with virtually none the previous two days - this could be wide open.

"That's probably my favorite course here, but I'm still going to have to shoot a good score at Pebble (on Saturday) to be in contention Sunday". "I was able to get back in it", said Mickelson. He also is virtually assured of being only the fifth player since the world ranking began in 1986 to be No. 1 for an entire year. That horror run of double bogey-par-bogey-bogey transformed McIlroy's round and means he will require a successful salvage operation in his third round at Pebble Beach if he is to make it into the final round. That put him alongside Mickelson in the group of six players sharing fifth place on nine-under, which also included former world number one Jason Day who posted a six-under 65 at Monterey Peninsula.

Defending champion: Jordan Spieth. For his second round, he never came close to bogey, hitting all but two greens in regulation and having standard chips on those.

Since 2010, the directors of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am have made some active changes to improve the golfing experience at their tournament.

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

His hard eagle putt sailed past the hole but with a six-foot putt for birdie all was not lost, yet.

Ahead of this week's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Australian said four-time Major victor McIlroy possesses all the tools to dominate the sport in a manner similar to Tiger Woods in the late 1990s and early 2000s but raised doubt over 'how much he wants it'.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tees it up this week on the Monterey Peninsula.

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

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy will need an improved round on Saturday after shooting 74 on Monterey Peninsula in the second round.

The left-hander picked up 11 strokes through 15 holes, only to bogey his final two holes for a nine-under 62.
