Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth have been nowhere close to each other in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am — except atop the leaderboard.

Walker played bogey-free in the wind and rain at Spyglass Hill for a 3-under 69. Spieth was down the coast at Monterey Peninsula, where he made a birdie on his last that he described as the best of his young career. That gave him a 4-under 67.

They were tied going into the third round, with a slight advantage to Walker.

Walker was at 9-under 135 and heads over to Monterey Peninsula, which has played the easiest of the three courses. Spieth was at 9-under 134 and goes to Pebble Beach, which can be brutal in nasty weather. And the forecast Saturday is not pleasant.
