Ted Potter Jr. and Brandt Snedeker emerged as the leaders after a cloudy second round at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Potter shot a 3-under 67 on Monterey Peninsula to get to the top spot while Snedeker shot 4-under 68 on Spyglass Hill. They have a four-shot lead on four players.

Here's how it happened:

• • •

Update No. 33: 6:57 p.m. EST

No more birdies coming in for Patrick Reed. Still, he finished his day on Pebble Beach at 3-under 69, and will enter the third round one shot behind the leaders.

• • •

Update No. 32: 6:43 p.m. EST

In case you missed it, Brandt Snedeker will take a share of the lead into Round 3. He climbed to an 8-under total by birdieing two of his final three holes at Spyglass Hill for a 4-under 68. He joins Ted Potter Jr.

• • •

Update No. 31: 6:40 p.m. EST

Jason Day also moving up the leaderboard. He birdied Nos. 6 and 7 at Spyglass Hill for a late second-round charge. One of just a few players still finishing the second round. He is currently T-7 at 6 under.

• • •

Update No. 30: 6:25 p.m. EST

James Hahn shot the round of the day in Friday. His 5-under 65 at Monterey Peninsula included six birdies and one bogey. More importantly, it moved him 50 spots higher on the leaderboard, to a tie for seventh at 6 under.

• • •

Update No. 29: 6:09 p.m. EST

Patrick Reed has gotten to 3 under on Pebble Beach for his second round. He still has Nos. 7-9 to play, but he's tied for third with his 7-under total, and just one shot off the lead. He has the most holes to play of anyone at the top of the leaderboard, and thus the best chance of catching (or passing) leader Ted Potter Jr.

• • •

Update No. 28: 5:57 p.m. EST

But for a double-bogey at Spyglass Hill's 11th, Brandt Snedeker could be at the top of the leaderboard right now. Snedeker still is 2 under for the day, and with one hole left, 6 under for the tournament. Ted Potter Jr., leads at 8 under.

• • •

Update No. 27: 5:43 p.m. EST

James Hahn has cooled since he made three consecutive birdies at Nos. 12-14. He has two holes left and is two shots off the lead.

You might say Kevin Stadler has cooled, too. He began the day with an eagle on the 10th hole (his first), then birdied two of the next three. That was the end of the birdies, however. He bogeyed No. 18, and hasn't made anything but a par on the front nine.

• • •

Update No. 26: 5:31 p.m. EST

Another 66 on the board from Nick O'Hern, who came off Monterey Peninsula with a round of 4 under. That got him to 6 under for the tournament, which right now is good for a share of fourth.

• • •

Update No. 25: 5:19 p.m. EST

Patrick Cantlay remains among the top 5. The young Cantlay is 2 under through 17 holes at Spyglass. He is 6 under for the tournament and tied for fourth.

• • •

Update No. 24: 5:12 p.m. EST

John Merrick also in the house now. He shot 3-under 67 on Monterey Peninsula and is tied for second with Fredrik Jacobson.

• • •

Update No. 23: 5:04 p.m. EST

James Hahn qualifies as another big mover for Day 2. Hahn just birdied Nos. 12-14 at Monterey Peninsula and is 6 under for the tournament. At T-5, he's up 52 spots from yesterday. Hahn was 10th in driving distance in 2012, but 191st in driving accuracy. So far this year, those stats are 38th and 133rd.

• • •

Update No. 22: 4:58 p.m. EST

Leader Ted Potter Jr dropped a shot at the par-4 ninth at Monterey Peninsula, and finished with a 3-under 67 today. He's at 8-under 134 and has a one-shot lead.

• • •

Update No. 21: 4:38 p.m. EST

Jacobson missed the birdie putt so low that he began walking toward it immediately after striking it. He finishes the day with a 6-under 66 at Pebble Beach. He is 7 under for the tournament, and trails Ted Potter Jr., who is still on the course, by two shots.

• • •

Update No. 20: 4:30 p.m. EST

Jacobson playing down the ninth (his 18th) at Pebble Beach now. He put his approach shot to about 20 feet at the par 4. A birdie here gets him to solo second, behind Ted Potter Jr.

• • •

Update No. 19: 4:27 p.m. EST

Looking for last week's winner Phil Mickelson? Well, he's only 1 under through 13 holes on Spyglass. Despite a 3-under 69 in Round 1, it still hasn't been enough to put him in contention early. Mickelson is T-44.

• • •

Update No. 18: 4:19 p.m. EST

Finally, someone breaks away from the pack at 7 under. With back-to-back birdies at No. 6 and 7 on Pebble Beach, Ted Potter Jr., has the solo lead. Two holes left for Potter.

• • •

Update No. 17: 3:59 p.m. EST

Two other big movers to keep an eye on today include Sean O'Hair, who is 4 under through 12 holes on Monterey Peninsula (up 30 spots to T-5), and Chris Kirk, who is 4 under through 16 on Pebble Beach (up 48 spots to T-9).

• • •

Update No. 16: 3:44 p.m. EST

Jacobson gave one back with a bogey at Pebble Beach's par-3 fifth, but birdied the par-5 sixth to return to a share of the lead.

On the other side of this course, Tommy Gainey also deserves a look. He just birdied Pebble Beach's 18th to get to 2 under on the day. That moves him into a tie for 28th, which is 29 spots higher than he began the day after a first-round 71.

• • •

Update No. 15: 3:37 p.m. EST

The first and second round could not be much different for Hunter Mahan. He had seven birdies and a bogey at Pebble Beach on Thursday, but has only managed to make one birdie in 11 holes at Monterey Peninsula. He's not exactly desperate yet, however. Mahan remains in a tie for first.

• • •

Update No. 14: 3:25 p.m. EST

Play is moving slowly at Pebble Beach, likely because of the Pro-Am component. Still, there's no shortage of entertainment among the celebrity crowd.

Among the pros, continue to keep an eye on Ted Potter Jr. After shooting an even-par 36 on Monterey Peninsula's back nine, he is 2 under through four on the front. Potter only had one top-10 finish in 25 PGA Tour starts in 2012.

• • •

Update No. 13: 3:04 p.m. EST

Five players now tied for the lead at 7 under. Nick O'Hern and Fredrik Jacobson have joined Hunter Mahan, Kevin Stadler and Matt Every. Of those players, Jacobson has made the biggest move in Round 2. He is 6 under through 13 holes.

• • •

Update No. 12: 2:44 p.m. EST

Fredrik Jacobson continues to play great golf, moving to 6 under on the day to jump into a four-way tie for the lead.

• • •

Update No. 11: 2:12 p.m. EST

We are back to a three-way tie for the lead, with Hunter Mahan picking up his first birdie of the day to move to 7 under, while Kevin Stadler is 4 under through his first four holes and is also 7 under for the tournament. Matt Every is 2 under today and also tied for the lead.

• • •

Update No. 10: 1:46 p.m. EST

The leaderboard is getting more crowded by the minute, with a seven-way tie on top at 6 under. Fredrik Jacobson is 5 under on his round and joins the leaders after a birdie on No. 18 at Pebble (he started on the back). Kevin Stadler, Matt Every, Patrick Cantlay, Ryuji Imada, Hunter Mahan and Russell Knox are also at 6 under.

• • •

Update No. 9: 1:26 p.m. EST

And now we have a three-way tie for the lead after Ryuji Imada bogeys the par-4 sixth hole at Spyglass to fall back to 6 under for the tournament, equal to Hunter Mahan and Russell Knox. Ted Potter Jr., who held the lead early on Friday, has bogeyed back-to-back holes to fall back to 5 under.

• • •

Update No. 8: 1:21 p.m. EST

Nick O'Hern and Fredrik Jacobson have the best rounds going – both are 3 under on their respective rounds, with O'Hern moving to within two shots of the lead at 5 under, and Jacobson at 4 under. Overnight co-leader Hunter Mahan has wasted two opportunities on par 5s early in his second round at Monterey Peninsula, sitting at even for the day and 6 under for the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 7: 12:58 p.m. EST

A handful of young guns are creeping toward leader Ryuji Imada, with Patrick Cantlay, Luke Guthrie and Scott Langley all within two shots of the lead. Cantlay has not made a cut in 2013, missing at both the Humana and Farmers Insurance. Guthrie has two top-30 finishes, plus two missed cuts. Langley was tied for the lead at the Sony Open heading into the final round.

Ted Potter Jr. has fallen out of a tie for the lead after a bogey at par-3 14th hole on Monterey Peninsula.

• • •

Update No. 6: 12:32 p.m. EST

Ryuji Imada has joined Ted Potter Jr. at the top of the leaderboard after two early birdies at Spyglass that moved him to 7 under. Meanwhile, rookie Ben Kohles has birdied three of his last four holes at Monterey Peninsula and is 5 under overall.

• • •

Update No. 5: 12:05 p.m. EST

Camilo Villegas is hot early, moving to 2 under on his round through two holes and is now 5 under overall, two shots back of Ted Potter Jr.

• • •

Update No. 4: 11:55 a.m. EST

This would qualify as a great way to start your day: An eagle to take the lead at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Ted Potter Jr. made an eagle at the par-5 10th on Monterrey Peninsula to move to 7 under, one shot clear of the overnight leaders.

• • •

Update No. 3: 11:43 a.m. EST

Tied ballgame again. Russell Knox tosses away his opening birdie with a bogey at the par-4 second hole at Spyglass. Meanwhile, Camilo Villegas and Matt Jones are both 1 under early in their rounds to move to 4 under, two back of Knox and Hunter Mahan.

• • •

Update No. 2: 11:23 a.m. EST

And just like that we have a new solo leader, as Russell Knox opens his second round with a birdie at the par-5 first at Spyglass to move to 7 under on the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 1: 11:10 a.m. EST

Mother Nature might wreak a little havoc today, with showers called for around 2 p.m. local time. According to weather.com, it should only last an hour or so. Temperatures will hover in the high 40s to low 50s all day.
