After three straight bogeys late in his round on Friday, Phil Mickelson birdied his last hole of the day to get to 10-under at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
When play was suspended around 5:30 ET on Friday, Mickelson found himself in a five-way tie atop the leaderboard with Lucas Glover, Scott Langley, Paul Casey and Jordan Spieth, although Spieth was on the 17th hole when they called it for the day.
Playing Spyglass Hill and starting on No. 10 on Friday, Mickelson made four birdies on his first nine holes and jumped out to the lead.
Bogeys on 6, 7 and 8 dropped him to 9-under and two shots off the lead, but Lefty got a three on the par-4 ninth hole to end his day, and he heads into the weekend in contention to win this event for the fifth time in his career.
Making the weekend keeps alive his streak of recording more victories at the AT&T than missed cuts.
And, this event marks the 500th PGA Tour cut made for Mickelson, who missed the cut last week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Of Mickelson’s 43 PGA Tour wins, 13 of them have come in California.
