Quietly, nearly unnoticed, Paul Casey took a more than handy lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, finishing his third round at 15 under par.

Casey shot 5-under 67 at Spyglass Hill in Round 3 to move to 15-under for the week.

Four-time victor Phil Mickelson had a mixed 70 at Pebble Beach and has sole possession of second place. He's now eight shots back and T-18 at 7 under for the week.

Americans Scott Piercy, with just one bogey at Spyglass Hill, and Lucas Glover, who recovered from two bogeys on his front nine to rattle off four straight birdies before the turn at Monterey Peninsula, were in the clubhouse on 11 under.

Jason Day, who was a runner-up to Ted Potter previous year along with Mickelson and Dustin Johnson, was one over after 10 holes in his second round at Spyglass Hill, but the Australian then reeled off four birdies in five holes and still has three to play on Saturday morning. Jordan Spieth fell off in the third round after a promising start to the week, carding a 2-over 74 at Pebble Beach.
