Paul Casey claimed the solo lead going into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California.

The Englishman takes a three-shot lead into round four after shooting a five-under 67 on day three on the Spyglass Hill course.

Casey, who won his first PGA Tour title since 2009 at the Valspar Championship in March last year, made gains on the fourth, seventh, ninth, 11th, 14th and 15th and had just one blemish on the sixth.

His closest competitor and four-time winner 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.

Americans Scott Piercy, with just one bogey at Spyglass Hill, and Lucas Glover, who recovered from two bogeys on his front nine to rattle off four straight birdies before the turn at Monterey Peninsula, were in the clubhouse on 11 under.

Scot Russell Knox was at nine under, two shots clear of Graeme McDowell. Shane Lowry however missed the cut, despite an improved third round of 67 at Monterey Peninsula.

The final round will be played at Pebble Beach on Sunday.
