If Rock Island's Gregg Ontiveros and his PGA playing partner, Brian Harman, are going to make it to the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday, they've got to make a move up the golf leaderboard in today's third round.

Ontiveros and Harman shot 2-under in Friday's second round, and stand at 8-under for the tournament. That puts them in a tie for 61st place, and nine strokes behind the leaders. More importantly, they are three strokes out of 25th place, which is the cutoff point after the third round to continue to the final day.

Ontiveros and Harman are defending champions of the pro-am event.

Among the leaders, in a three-way tie, are the pair of Jason Day of the PGA, and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who lost in the Super Bowl last Sunday.
