PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker has just posted his ninth straight round in the 60s to open a three-stroke lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Snedeker is 12 under after shooting a 68 on the famous host course. It was his 17th sub-par round in 18 attempts this season and moved him to a cumulative 75 under for the year.
Snedeker has finished second at the last two PGA TOUR events and also was third in the season opener. Small wonder then that Snedeker sits atop the FedExCup standings after winning the $10 million bonus last year.
Richard Lee, who tied for fourth at q-school to get his PGA TOUR card back, is finished at 9 under after shooting a 66 at Pebble Beach. He's tied with James Hahn, Patrick Reed, Chris Kirk and Patrick Cantlay.
Hahn is through 15 holes at Spyglass Hills while Reed has played 13 at Monterey Peninsula and Kirk is through 10 on the same course. Cantlay, the UCLA product who is making the most of his sponsor's exemption, is 2 under through 13 holes at Pebble Beach.
