Snedeker, Hahn Tied For The Lead At Pebble

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Brandt Snedeker had his ninth consecutive round in the 60s. One more and he might really have reason to celebrate.

Coming off consecutive runner-up finishes to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, Snedeker ran off four straight birdies along the prettiest part of Pebble Beach and wound up tied for the lead with 31-year-old rookie James Hahn in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

They were at 12-under 202.

For all the celebrity antics that are part of the Saturday show at Pebble, the lasting image was Mickelson taking a spill on the rocks. He went looking for a tee shot near the ocean on the par-5 18th when his right foot gave way and he landed hard on a rock. He made triple bogey to fall out of contention.
