Brandt Snedeker goes into the weekend at Pebble Beach with another chance to win, this time without golf's biggest stars in his way.
Snedeker played bogey-free at tough Spyglass Hill on Friday for a 4-under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Ted Potter Jr. in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Hunter Mahan was among those one shot behind. With one more round before everyone has played all three courses, the leaderboard was a big traffic jam.
Snedeker has been runner-up the last two weeks - four shots behind Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines, four shots behind Phil Mickelson in Phoenix. Woods is not playing this week, while Mickelson stumbled down the stretch at Spyglass Hill for a 71 and was six shots off the lead.
