PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Patrick Cantlay has cut Brandt Snedeker's lead to one shot with a 5-foot birdie putt at the seventh hole at Pebble Beach.
Snedeker, meanwhile, has cooled off after that birdie barrage to end the front nine. He bogeyed the 10th hole, missing the green and a 7-footer to save par; answered with a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 11 and has parred the next four holes.
Snedeker, who was runner-up in the last two PGA TOUR events, remains at 12 under. Cantlay turned pro last summer after his sophomore year at UCLA.
PGA TOUR rookies James Hahn and Patrick Reed are tied with Chris Kirk at 9 under. Hahn has played 12 holes at Spyglass Hills while Reed is through 10 and Kirk through eight at Monterey Peninsula.
