At Pebble Beach, Graeme McDowell had to settle for a one-under-par 71 after double bogeying the short 17th. He followed his lone bogey of the day with back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17, and picked up three more birdies coming in.

"I was just sort of ready to call it quits for the year after the Dunhill", he said.

Johnson said he's approaching the form that saw him win three straight tournaments early a year ago before he fell on some stairs and hurt his back as he prepared to tee it up in the Masters.

Johnson's game is built around his driving prowess, ranking first in SG: off-the-tee (gaining 2.225 strokes over the field) and first in SG: total.

I don't know if we'll get another elite victor this week, but I do know we won't be short on views.

"It's a tournament that I've always watched and I've always thought one day it would be really cool to play with my dad, and fortunately we were able to get him in and play", McIlroy said.

He sounds as though he can't wait to get going, especially after his start in the Middle East portion of the European Tour schedule when he tied for third in Abu Dhabi and lost a lead on the back nine in finishing second to Li Haotong in Dubai.

"I am having fun", said the 47-year-old American, who is seeking a 43rd US PGA Tour title and his first since the 2013 British Open.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am wraps up on Sunday.

"I just kind of got into a place that I hadn't been before, and I've just got to get back into a comfortable setup position, and then everything will fall through from there", he said.

World number two Jon Rahm of Spain had five birdies without a bogey in his five-under par 67 at Pebble Beach on Friday.

Among the big names ominously poised were Dustin Johnson (five-under), Rory McIlroy (four-under) and John Rahm (four-under).

Shane Lowry holed-out with his approach to the first (his 10th of the round) at Monterrey Peninsula, that opening eagle also helping him to a round of 68 on Thursday.

McIlroy was four-under through 15 holes before suffering a bogey on the 16th, when his wayward drive finished in a waste area. "They were two good confidence builders going into this part of the season", the four-time Major victor added.
