Leishman stretches lead at BMW Championship

  • FedExCup update: Phil thrilled to be back in the hunt

Lacking the magic he enjoyed over opening rounds of 62 and 64, the 33-year-old Leishman is fighting to maintain his cushion at the top with three birdies and two bogeys on moving day.

Day made a hole-in-one at the par-three 17th and Fowler carded a pair of eagles to stay in contention on 13 under.

The powerful finish allowed Day to make a massive late move through the field and he will start round three just two off Leishman's pace. If the hole-in-one was lucky, the eagle was inch-perfect execution.

There's a new leader at the BMW Championship. "I can't get too far ahead of myself".

"Last week showed that leading by a couple of shots going into the back nine is not enough and there is a lot of great players just behind me so I need to keep the foot on the pedal". American Patrick Cantlay was alone in fourth after a 65 for 132. Day also won a vehicle and, not long after signing his card, he made a decision to donate that to the foundation to pay for another full scholarship.

Maroon 5 to Perform at Rock in Rio Festival
Rock in Rio, which starts Friday, is to feature Maroon 5, Fergie, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns N' Roses. The pain is typically accompanied by extreme fatigue, mood, memory and sleep problems. "It's hard", Gaga reportedly said .


The hole-in-one came moments after Day, who won the event by six shots in 2015, produced a chip-in eagle at the par-5 14th. Even after the hole-in-one, I wasn't even amped. Defending champion: Dustin Johnson.

The Northern Irishman, who entered the tournament at his lowest world ranking - sixth - for more than three years having missed the cut at the Dell Technologies Championship, needed a good performance this week in order to reach the top 30 qualifying places for next week's season final Tour Championship in Atlanta.

His 69 took him to 7-under 135, in a tie for 12th.

It's easy to overlook Leishman because the Australian has only two PGA Tour victories, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year. British Open champion Jordan Spieth, who topped the FedEx Cup standings coming into the penultimate event of the US PGA Tour's four-tournament playoff series, carded a one-under par 70 to lie nine shots off the pace on 135.

The 28-year-old Northern Irishman captured the FedEx Cup title last year - and its $10 million bonus jackpot - but is now projected to finish 60th unless he makes a big move over the final two round, estimating he needed "a couple of 65s" to make any impact.
