PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Forget the Super Bowl. The San Francisco Bay area has plenty to cheer about in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Not only is Cal-Berkeley's James Hahn tied for the lead with Brandt Snedeker, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and his partner Jason Day are challenging for the pro-am title.
Jordan Spieth and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo are currrently setting the pace at 25 under after posting their second 62 of the week. Harbaugh and Day, who combined for a first-round 61, are four strokes behind after shooting 69 at Pebble Beach on Saturday.
"He's a really, really good guy," Day, who is tied for sixth in the pro competition, said of Harbaugh. "Obviously watching him on TV you think he's really intense. (But he's) a really fun-loving guy. We've had a lot of fun for the past three days and we get to play another day tomorrow, which is great."
Snedeker and his partner, Toby Wilt, the Nashvile investor and fellow Vanderbilt grad, are one stroke off the lead at 24 under in the hunt for dual victories after Saturday's 63. The tournament's low pro-am round of 58 on Saturday landed Michael Letzig and John Erickson in a tie for second with Snedeker and Wilt.
Patrick Cantlay and his partner, professional surfer Kelly Slater, are among four teams tied for fourth at 22 under. Other celebrities who made the cut are musician Huey Lewis, who is playing with PGA TOUR rookie Brad Fritsch; Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, who is playing with Robert Garrigus; singer Clay Walker, who is playing with Jeff Maggert; and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley, who is playing with James Driscoll.
In case you are wondering, here are the amateurs' handicaps: Romo (0), Harbaugh (12), Erickson (18), Wilt (7), Lewis (11), Verlander (4), Walker (10) and Kelley (6).
A total of 25 teams survived to play the final round. Dustin Johnson, a two-time champion at Pebble Beach, and NHL Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky were among the two teams at 18 under eliminated by the tiebreaker.
