Rory McIlroy three shots back at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro

Rodgers carries a handicap index of 5.7 and lists his home course as Green Bay Country Club, according to the Wisconsin State Golf Association.

Spieth missed the cut last week in Phoenix and returns as the defending champion this weekend at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and while he admits he's in a "minor slump" with his putter, he knows other players would want him taking a do-or-die putt in the Ryder Cup later this year.

Current number one Dustin Johnson heads the field on the California coast, though his ranking could be threatened if number two Jon Rahm wins.

Streelman had seven birdies without a bogey in his 65 at par-72 Spyglass Hill, one of three courses in use for the tournament.

But the four-time major victor rallied to hole a birdie on the 18th and remain among the chasing pack. "The 36-year-old's split included three conversions from between 10 and 19 feet, adding a hole-out 3 at 16 from 37'10" away and a 26-footer from the fringe at 2. He has been playing really well coming into this week. "I was able to get back in it".

'I will have played a lot of tournament golf leading up to it.

But he also admitted that he felt so dejected after last year's winless and injury-hit season that he vowed to make the next decade the best of his career.

If McIlroy needed a shot of confidence, Day was happy to provide it. It was the Australian's first title since the 2016 Players Championship. This year it's going to be a little different because the weather's so good and the course is playing firmer, I think it will move quicker than last year when we were walking with umbrellas.

"That's not the reason that I'm out here to play, I've got everything I need".

Under par for the day and within four shots of the lead after beginning on the back nine, McIlroy nearly drove the green with his tee shot and finished just short of the front edge. It's an official PGA Tour event for the 156 professionals in the field, and there's a separate team competition.
