PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Victories have been elusive for Phil Mickelson over the past five years, but he has given himself another chance on the Monterey Peninsula, where he will seek a tournament-record-tying fifth victory this weekend at Pebble Beach.

"I was swinging pretty good", he said. "That was probably some of the best golf I've played in my career, but parts of the game are just as good".

Day, an 11-time US PGA Tour victor, shares 32nd with a host of players including five time major victor Phil Mickelson.

The Northern Irish star has enjoyed a solid start to the year, finishing in a tie for third at the Abu Dhabi Championship last month before a second place at the Dubai Desert Classic.McIlroy, who returned to the top 10 last month after failing to win an event last year for the first time in almost a decade, said he had taken positives from recent results.

"But with how I was sort of dejected and wanting to get away from it I was then, to how rejuvenated and optimistic I am now, it feels a lot different that way".

But going into Pebble Beach, he ranks 195th in the key putting statistic out of 206 players.

The Monterey Peninsula has been a good hunting ground for Johnson with two wins (2009 & 2010) and a runner-up (2013) finish as well as a third place past year.

The pro-am event sees the professionals and their partners also playing a round at Monterey Peninsula before the final day's action takes place at the famous Pebble Beach public links.

Among the big names ominously poised were Dustin Johnson (five-under), Rory McIlroy (four-under) and John Rahm (four-under). He seized control by taking only 10 putts on the back nine in the third round at Pebble Beach to build a six-shot lead, and he cruised home from there. But he needed four more putts from there, recording a double-bogey on the hole.

His form is as good as any player on tour right now, averaging seventh position in his last three tournaments.
