PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Jason Kokrak, set to join the PGA Tour for the first time next season, shot a 3-under 69 on Friday at Spyglass for a share of the lead with Kyle Thompson after the second round of the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational.
Thompson followed his opening 64 with a 70 at Del Monte to match Kokrak at 10-under 134.
PGA Tour veteran Cameron Tringale, who carded a 67 at Del Monte, and Matt Battencourt, a two-time PGA Tour winner who shot 68 at Spyglass Hill, were tied for third at 8 under. Harrison Frazar was another stroke back after a 68 at Pebble Beach.
Defending champion John Mallinger had a 76 at Del Monte to finish at 6 over.
The event is the only tournament that features head-to-head competition among players from the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, Champions Tour and Nationwide Tour.
