Five things to know after the third round of the 2019 Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where Phil Mickelson sits three shots back of Paul Casey heading into Sunday’s finale.

  1. Casey Cruises: Englishman Paul Casey posted a third-day 67 at Spyglass, which included six birdies against one bogey, en route to a 15-under par.
  2. Phil Follows: Playing alongside Casey on Sunday will be three-time Pebble winner Phil Mickelson, who shot a 2-under 70 on Saturday at PBGL to reach 12-under par, good for solo-second. Phil’s round was highlighted by a birdie-eagle stretch on Nos. 13 and 14.
  3. Journeyman Chasers: Casey and Mickelson won’t exactly have big-name players chasing them down on Sunday. World Nos. 130 and 131, respectively, Scott Piercy (69) and Lucas Glover (70), sit T3 at 11-under par, one clear of Matt Every (69) and Brian Gay (69), neither of whom even rank in the top 150 in the world.
  4. Spieth Struggles: Former world No. 1 Jordan Spieth was tied atop the leaderboard at 10-under par through 16 holes when play was suspended on Friday. But a bogey to close out his second round on Saturday, coupled with a third-round 74, sent him tumbling 17 spots south, landing at T18 on 7-under par.
  5. The Pits for Potter: 2018 surprise winner Ted Potter Jr. opened with an 82 and never recovered, finishing 12-over par and missing the 54-hole cut by a ton.
