Casey leads Mickelson by three at Pebble Beach

Casey leads Mickelson by three at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey shared the clubhouse lead before torrential rain forced the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to be suspended.

Teeing off as part of a four-way tie for the lead, Casey jumped clear with a five-under 67 at Spyglass Hill that give him a 15-under total of 200.

Mickelson's 70 at Pebble Beach Golf Links was highlighted by a four-foot eagle putt on the 14th hole after a brilliant approach shot from 238 yards.

Jordan Spieth is also on 10 under and had two holes of his second round to complete at Spyglass Hill when the tournament resumes on Saturday morning, the three-time major champion being one of 44 players who were still on the course when flooded greens left officials with no option but to bring the event to a halt.

"It was going to bite me at some point", Spieth said. I drove the ball well the last two days, and then today my driver just didn't behave at all.

Four-time Pebble Beach victor Phil Mickelson (70) is three shots back at 12 under in second, while former US Open victor Lucas Glover (70) and fellow American Scott Piercy (69) share third at 11 under.

He said afterward he wants to fight at least three more times this year. "I'm extremely proud of Tank", Mayweather said. He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April. 'Yes, exhibition bout.

He was on the original list of commitments without his approval, and said he was never going.

"Obviously, Paul has a big advantage and I just have to just go out and shoot a low round".

Strong winds and an occasional rain squall made for testing conditions on Saturday, and Casey acknowledged that the weather created an element of luck.

He is more interested in what he can accomplish Sunday at a tournament that, with reasonable weather and an enjoyable amateur partner, he has come to enjoy. They have a four-shot lead in the pro-am. The 41-year-old Englishman is looking for his third career PGA Tour win coming off last year's victory at the Valspar Championship.

All three times, Casey shot a final round of 2 over or worse. 9 and 10, and then recovered brilliantly.

"I thought anything in the 60s was going to be a heck of a round, and I was one shy", Mickelson said.
