PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker heads to the final nine holes of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a two-stroke advantage over Chris Kirk.
Snedeker will need to shake off a rare three-putt on the ninth hole, though. He had a downhill 22-footer for birdie there but it slid 15 feet past the hole and he ended up making bogey to turn in 32.
Kirk, playing in the penultimate group, also bogeyed the ninth and is 14 under. He had four birdies on the front nine and shot 33.
Jimmy Walker has surged into a tie at 13 under after making five birdies in a six-hole stretch that began at the fifth hole. He's tied with Fredrik Jacobson and Kevin Stadler, who are 6 under through 14 and 13 holes, respectively; Robert Garrigus and overnight leader James Hahn.
