Dustin Johnson remains on course to win the AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Am as he goes into Sunday's final round with a share of the lead alongside Ted Potter Jr.

The 33-year-old current world number one has been around the top of the leaderboard throughout the tournament and maintained it on Saturday with a two-under-par 70 in this third round.

Johnson is joined by Potter who went close to recording a sub-60 round on the Monterey Peninsula course only to bogey his final two holes for a 62 to sit on 14 under going into the final round.

All in all I felt good about the game, feeling really good about tomorrow [Sunday].

Australian Jason Day and American Troy Merritt sit just two shots off the pace leaving Johnson frustrated that he spurned some good opportunities to give himself a bigger lead.

The American said: "The couple of bogeys I made the wind was a little bit tricky and I just got on wrong side of the holes, which I knew better.

"All in all I felt good about the game, feeling really good about tomorrow [Sunday]."

Rory McIlroy will take no part in the final round at Pebble Beach after he followed up Friday's disappointing 74 with a level-par 72 to miss the cut by two strokes.

"I just need a few putts to fall," he said. "I let the greens yesterday get into my head and it was hard to get out of that mindset."

Johnson is 100/1 to win at Pebble Beach, while Potter is priced at 1/200 and Day is available at 33/1.
