It shouldn't be a surprise at this point: Brandt Snedeker is in the thick of things.

Snedeker shot a second consecutive round of 68 on Saturday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, this time on Pebble Beach. He has a share of the lead with James Hahn.

Snedeker has two second-place finishes the past two weeks on the PGA Tour, and also has a third-place finish so far in the 2013 season.

For a recap of Round 3, see below:

• • •

Update No. 27: 7:04 p.m. EST:

Chris Kirk couldn't find a birdie coming in, but still finished with a 6-under 64 on Monterey Peninsula. He will start the final round one shot behind Brandt Snedeker and James Hahn.

• • •

Update No. 26: 6:23 p.m. EST:

With nearly all players in the house, the cutline is projected to be 1 under. That would leave Phil Mickelson barely in for Sunday. Tim Clark and 2011 U.S. Amateur champion Kelly Kraft also are on the number. On the other side, youngsters Morgan Hoffmann and Ben Kohles would narrowly miss.

• • •

Update No. 25: 5:58 p.m. EST:

Another par for Chris Kirk at Monterey Peninsula's sixth. He needs to find a birdie in the next three holes to take a share of the lead into the final round.

• • •

Update No. 24: 5:51 p.m. EST:

Patrick Cantlay came out of the gate very hot on Saturday – he went 4 under on Pebble Beach's first four holes – but is dropping down the leaderboard. He just made bogey at No. 13, his third of the day.

• • •

Update No. 23: 5:45 p.m. EST:

Robert Garrigus has come in with a 66 on and Webb Simpson has come in with a 65, both on Pebble Beach. Low scores out today. They are still four and five shots off the pace, respectively.

• • •

Update No. 22: 5:31 p.m. EST:

James Hahn caught Brandt Snedeker with a birdie at No. 18. Both are now in the clubhouse at 12 under for the tournament. The next player who has a legitimate chance at joining them is Chris Kirk. He is 6 under through 14 at Monterey Peninsula, and is 11 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 21: 5:27 p.m. EST:

James Hahn can birdie the 18th hole at Spyglass Hill and tie Brandt Snedeker for the top spot on the leaderboard. Hahn is 5 under today.

• • •

Update No. 20: 4:53 p.m. EST:

Retief Goosen in with 3-under 67 on Monterey Peninsula, and up to T-7. Keep in mind Goosen spent the end of last season with an ailing back (click here for story).

• • •

Update No. 19: 4:48 p.m. EST:

James Hahn is closing in on the end of his round. He just birdied Pebble Beach's seventh to get to 4 under for the day. He and Chris Kirk currently are tied for second at 10 under.

• • •

Update No. 18: 4:39 p.m. EST:

Brandt Snedeker missed a birdie putt at the 18th that could have meant a third-round 67. He remains at 12 under for the tournament, and has a three-shot lead on the next closest players.

• • •

Update No. 17: 4:27 p.m. EST:

Richard H. Lee seems to have come up out of nowhere. He is one of the first truly low scores on the board Saturday – he put up a 6-under 66 on Pebble Beach. Lee started on the back, and finished that side with a double-bogey. He opened the front nine birdie-eagle, then birdied three of his final four holes.

Lee is up 28 spots to T-2, three shots behind Brandt Snedeker.

• • •

Update No. 16: 4:24 p.m. EST:

Phil Mickelson's round came apart at the 18th. Mickelson, who won last week's Waste Management Phoenix Open, put his drive and his fairway shot in the water at Pebble Beach's par-5 finishing hole. He is made a triple-bogey and fell to 1 under for the tournament. That's right on the cut line.

• • •

Update No. 15: 4:15 p.m. EST:

Patrick Cantlay lost some major ground at the end of his front nine with back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 8 and 9. He's now part of a four-way tie for second at 9 under, three shots off the lead.

• • •

Update No. 14: 4:09 p.m. EST:

Two new names have entered the picture in Round 3. Robert Garrigus 6 under through 15 at Pebble Beach, and up 33 spots to T-6. Also keep an eye on Webb Simpson. He's also playing Pebble Beach and is 7 under through 14. That moves him up 59 spots on the leaderboard.

Pebble Beach definitely is the scoring course today.

• • •

Update No. 13: 4:00 p.m. EST:

In case you're also keeping an eye on the Pro-Am part of this tournament, Brandt Snedeker leads that one too. He and partner Toby Wilt are 24 under for the tournament. Both are Vanderbilt graduates.

• • •

Update No. 12: 3:48 p.m. EST:

Brandt Snedeker has slowed down a little bit as the round wears on. He hasn't made a birdie since No. 11, and he's now on No. 16. Meanwhile, his closest pursuer, Patrick Cantlay, dropped a shot at No. 8. He now trails by two.

• • •

Update No. 11: 3:36 p.m. EST:

Patrick Reed has a colorful card so far today. He started and ended the front nine at Monterey Peninsula with pairs of birdies, but a double-bogey at the par-4 fifth have hurt his chase. He is 9 under for the tournament, and three shots off the lead.

• • •

Update No. 10: 3:30 p.m. EST:

Patrick Cantlay made the birdie putt at No. 7, and now is only one shot behind Brandt Snedeker. Cantlay is now 5 under for his third round. James Driscoll is also 5 under through nine holes on Pebble Beach. He is up 24 spots on the leaderboard, to T-6.

• • •

Update No. 9: 3:23 p.m. EST:

Patrick Cantlay just stuck it to inside 10 feet at Pebble Beach's picturesque, par-3 seventh, and has a good chance to make another birdie. Keep an eye on young Cantlay. He went 4 under in his first four holes at Pebble Beach, and is making a run at leader Brandt Snedeker.

• • •

Update No. 8: 3:03 p.m. EST:

Charlie Wi is working on the best round of the day. He has five birdies and no bogeys on Pebble Beach. Wi ranked inside the top 25 on Tour for birdie average so far this year.

• • •

Update No. 7: 2:48 p.m. EST:

Pebble Beach seems to be the course on which the most players are putting together low rounds today. Brandt Snedeker is 4 under through 12, Patrick Cantlay 4 under through four, Pat Perez is 4 under through six and Charlie Wi is 5 under through 12.

• • •

Update No. 6: 2:35 p.m. EST:

Patrick Cantlay now is in solo second. Cantlay eagled the second hole at Pebble Beach, and birdied the next two. He is 10 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 5: 2:23 p.m. EST:

Brandt Snedeker just holed a downhill, left-to-right birdie putt from about 20 feet at the 11th. With that, he got back the stroke he lost at the 10th. Snedeker is back to 11 under, and two shots ahead of chasers James Hahn and Patrick Cantlay.

• • •

Update No. 4: 2:10 p.m. EST:

File James Hahn under the list of Saturday movers. He's 3 under through eight holes on Spyglass Hill, and within two shots of leader Brandt Snedeker, who dropped a shot at Pebble Beach's 10th.

• • •

Update No. 3: 1:59 p.m. EST:

Brandt Snedeker makes the turn at 4 under. That includes five birdies (four consecutive at Nos. 6-9) and a bogey. Aaron Baddeley is also playing well today, but he might have started too far behind. He's 4 under through eight holes on Monterey Peninsula, but trails Snedeker by four shots.

• • •

Update No. 2: 1:44 p.m. EST:

Brandt Snedeker continues to increase his lead. He's now 3 under through eight holes, and to 11 under for the tournament. That gives him a two-shot lead on Patrick Reed. Second-round co-leader Ted Potter Jr. is moving in the other direction. He opened with bogey, and suddenly trails by four.

• • •

Update No. 1: 1:25 p.m. EST:

Snedeker is gaining ground already in Round 3. He is 3 under through his first seven holes on Pebble Beach. He leads Patrick Reed by one shot, and Aaron Baddeley also is making a charge. He's 4 under through six holes on Monterey Peninsula.
