Among the other high-profile names competing this week, world number six Jordan Spieth was three under after 16 holes at Monterey Peninsula while four-times champion Phil Mickelson was one under after 17 on the same layout.
Day matched Americans Jordan Spieth and Derek Fathauer on 10-under par after 36 holes in the event, which is contested over three courses - Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula.
His consistent driving was backed up by a rock-solid iron game as he missed only two greens in regulation, getting up and down after tugging his approach to the 13th while his third to the long 14th found the fringe, albeit only 12 feet from the hole.
After completing the final two holes of his first round which was cut short by inclement weather on Thursday, the two-time major victor then fired eight birdies in his seven-under-par 65 to sit at the top of the leaderboard on 10 under after the second round.
"I could afford to make a couple of mistakes today if I needed to but fortunately I didn't and managed to stay ahead", said Spieth, who won his first tournament since the Australian Open last November. Day was scheduled to tee off at Pebble's 10th hole at 10:55, while Spieth was set to begin his third round at 11:50 from hole No. 1.
Australia's world number one Jason Day put together a two-under par 69 at Monterey Peninsula that included four birdies and two bogeys.
As Spieth left the 18th green and walked toward fans in the gallery, he was approached by the professional autograph seekers, who he appeared to recognize.
Spieth mentioned one time when an autograph hunter dropped an "F" bomb in front of three children.
"Just some scum. That just bothers me".
Johnson hit his putt so hard that he said, "I thought it was going into the crowd". Torrey Pines victor Jon Rahm ran off six straight birdies through the seventh hole at Pebble Beach.
