Ireland’s Seamus Power broke the 36-hole tournament scoring record and stormed into a five-shot lead halfway through the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Power mixed 10 birdies with two bogeys and posted eight under 64s at Pebble Beach, one of three lanes used in the event to jump to 16 under and the first 36-hole lead of his PGA Tour career.

The 34-year-old made a two-putt birdie in par-five seconds and responded to a three-putt bogey on the short fifth hole by birdie six of his next seven holes to charge the leaderboard.

Power added additional birdies on the 14th and 16th to go eight under for his round before jumping back from failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the 17th to take advantage of par-five last.

“My wedge game was great,” Power said. “Three or four strokes I hit very, very close, and as I put it, it was not gimmie birdies, but certainly the ones you would expect to make, and it just changes your whole complex of your round, of your score. that was the most gratifying thing. “

The world No. 50, who has claimed his breakthrough victory at the Barbasol Championship last July and has top-15 finishes in six of his last seven starts, has a commanding advantage over the nearest challengers Andrew Putnam, Adam Svensson and overnight leader Tom Hoge .

Hoge returned from double-bogeying his opening hole to map a two-under 69 on the Monterey Peninsula, where Power plays on Saturday, while Svensson posted another round 63 at the same spot, and Putnam shot another round 67 on Spyglass Hill.
