Having started the round in a four-way tie for the lead, his 67 gave him a 15-under par total of 200 and a three-shot lead over Mickelson, who carded a two-under par 70 at Pebble Beach for a 12-under total of 203.

Jason Day leads the Australians after his round of 72 today at Pebble Beach saw him lose ground but he is six shots behind the leader and just three shots out of second place so something very special from him tomorrow could yet see him contending for the title.

His closest competitor and four-time victor at this event, Phil Mickelson, moved to 12 under at Pebble Beach after mixing four birdies with four bogeys before taking advantage of the par-five 14th for an eagle to get to two-under for the day. He's now eight shots back and T-18 at 7 under for the week. "So I've been able to make a few more birdies on some of these holes".

"Obviously, Paul has a big advantage and I just have to just go out and shoot a low round".

Scott Piercy (69) and Lucas Glover (70) are four shots back of Casey at 11 under for the tournament, while Brian Gay (69) and Matt Every (69) are a stroke further back.

"It's tricky on occasions, but you have to embrace it", Casey said.

Jordan Spieth is also on 10 under and had two holes of his second round to complete at Spyglass Hill when the tournament resumes on Saturday morning, the three-time major champion being one of 44 players who were still on the course when flooded greens left officials with no option but to bring the event to a halt. Casey is playing with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx. Casey is 0-3 with the lead going into the final round on the PGA Tour, losing three-shot lead two years ago at the TPC Boston when Rory McIlroy shot 65, and a four-shot lead last summer at the Travelers Championship when Bubba Watson closed with a 63.

"I thought anything in the 60s was going to be a heck of a round, and I was one shy", Mickelson said. "I'm looking forward to it".
