If McIlroy needed a shot of confidence, Day was happy to provide it. "I said, 'Fine, stand still.' Blocked it way right and hit my second in the water", McIlroy said. Spieth likes what he sees from Romo on the golf course.

"I have made it known that one of my goals is to get on the Ryder Cup team again and go to Paris and I need to get off to a good start", he said.

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.

A two-time victor of the event, Johnson has the length to get a big advantage on the par-5s on three of the shortest courses on Tour.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am wraps up on Sunday.

For Gerry McIlory, who worked three jobs at times as his son aspired to golf greatness, there is not much better. I'm going to take a couple of weeks. "But all in all, the game's pretty sharp".

"I wish I could have played a little bit better for him and wish we would have both been around to play tomorrow", McIlroy said, "but it was a really cool few days and even though the golf didn't quite go where we wanted it to, we still had a good time".

Mickelson, a four-time victor of the event played on three tracks over four days, got off to a shaggy start with a bogey on the par-5 first hole at Spyglass Hill, a course he brought to its knees with a first-round 62 back in 2005. He was in a group at 11 under that included 50-year-old Steve Stricker (70) and Patrick Rodgers (69). Phil Mickelson fired a 65 that puts him three shots back.

Padraig Harrington, Shane Lowry and Seamus Power all begin at Monterey Peninsula while Graeme McDowell's first round is at Pebble Beach.

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy opened his USA season with a 68 at Spyglass to share 16th at four under with a host of players including world No.2 Jon Rahm. But then he missed his par putt from 3 feet, and it ran about 6 feet by the hole, and he missed that one.

After a slow start Thursday at Spyglass Hill - he was 2 over par through 11 holes - Mickelson has played his last 25 holes in 11 under par. No matter. He still managed a 72 and missed the cut by two shots. He missed a birdie chance from three feet on the par-five 13th hole, which was annoying because he didn't have many looks like that. Streelman and Hossler were 7-under through 18 holes. That led to his third bogey on the back nine, and suddenly he had company.

Day put on a ball-striking clinic on the easier Monterey course, hitting 15 of 18 greens. His back nine 38 left a little (OK, a lot) to be desired, but he's the favorite at -110 going into Sunday's final round.

Potter's only PGA Tour victory was at the Greenbrier Classic in 2012.
