Johnson birdied his first three holes to set a strong base for a seven-under-par 64 second round on the Monterey Peninsula course, one of three used for the event.

Hossler, who shot a five-under par 67 at Spyglass Hill, has played a bogey-free 36 holes in his bid for a first victory in this only his 10th start as a PGA Tour member. He shot a 6-under 65, leaving him in a three-way tie for second in relation par with Matt Kuchar and Julian Suri, who both posted 6-under 66s at Spyglass.

Phil Mickelson, Jason Day and Jon Rahm highlight the pack at 9-under, only three shots off the pace.

Defending champion: Jordan Spieth. "He has the tools to be kind of Tigeresque", Day said on the eve of the Pro-Am. He will play Pebble Beach on Saturday, and after the 54-hole cut is made, all of the competitors play Pebble Beach on Sunday. I know it's about your own game and it's about improving, that's all you're trying to do is consistently improve and get better. He won at Pebble Beach in 1995.

"I try and not let those things affect me, " Hossler said.

Mickelson was encouraged after his round, which featured six birdies and no bogeys.

Bush reveals 'clear evidence' Russian Federation meddled in 2016 election
He spoke Thursday at a summit in Abu Dhabi put on by the Milken Institute, an economic think tank based in California. US intelligence agencies have concluded Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

"I am having fun", said the 47-year-old American, who is seeking a 43rd US PGA Tour title and his first since the 2013 British Open. That's not the reason that I'm out here to play, I've got everything I need. "I'm very optimistic about this weekend and I'm optimistic about the year".

Adam Scott, making his first competitive appearance this year, showed plenty of rust and struggled at the hard Spyglass course to a 77 and at five over is nearly at the bottom of the leaderboard. Westwood had a 70 to move into the tie, with four other golfers a stroke behind.

Scoring conditions were so good - everything was good about this day - that 97 out of the 156 players broke par. It's easy to get picky with certain details, but I'm compensated really well by making a lot of par putts. "I would say that I'm driving it well, but I'm probably not quite as good as I was when on those three wins, but everything else feels like it's really good". A year ago, he hit 4-iron. The world's No. 1 golfer grew up with bowling and said he once had a chance at a ideal game. I want to be one of the best players to ever have played the game when I decide to call it a day. "I just love everything about it".

Throw in three courses to learn, some years when the weather can be brutal and bumpy greens and there are many players who have been apt to overlook its beauty.

Steve Stricker (65 MP), Kevin Streelman (69 MP) and Aaron Wise (69 PB) are also tied for fifth.

Briefly: McIlroy tumbled out of contention by shooting 74 on Friday, including a four-putt on No. 5 at Monterey Peninsula.
