PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Adam Schenk recorded his second consecutive 3-under-par round Friday and is in 20th place at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

At 6-under par, Schenk moved up four spots from Thursday. He is eight shots behind leader Nick Taylor, who carded a 6-under round Friday to climb to 14-under. Jason Day is in second at 12-under and Phil Mickelson is in third at 11-under.
Schenk plays at Spyglass Hill today, teeing off on the first hole at 12:28 p.m. with D.J. Trahan and two amateur partners. The cut for low-65 golfers and ties occurs after today’s round.
