Marc Leishman moves three clear of Jason Day at BMW Championship

Marc Leishman moves three clear of Jason Day at BMW Championship

Leishman's 64 sees him lead by three shots at 16-under overall, ahead of Day and Fowler.

As Leishman has experienced many times before, it's tough to close out wins on the PGA Tour.

Day, who last won 16 months ago, chipped in from behind the 14th green for his second eagle of the week, and then added a third eagle with one swing, which was actually a hole-in-one on the Par-3 17th hole with a 7-iron that turned into a payoff for multiple parties.

The Australian contingent at Conway Farms had a superb day out with Cameron Smith joining Leishman and Day inside the top-10 through 36 holes.

Government stands firm: Why should India shelter Rohingyas?
The central government on Thursday in their "unfinalised affidavit" had said that Rohingyas pose a security threat to the country. The government claimed these groups to be operating in Jammu, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Mewat in north India.


"At the start of the year, I felt like I was kind of fighting an uphill battle with myself, trying to force things too much", he said. "I've had two eagles and a hole-in-one this week already, so everything's come in bunches".

That ace carried Day to a 65, putting him in the last group on the weekend with Leishman.

For two days, he has looked like the Day of old.

"And last week I showed that a couple of shots going in the back nine is not enough. That's the main goal".

Fowler also finished strong, with three birdies and an eagle from the 13th through 17th of a 64 for 129. The top 30 in the FedEx Cup advance to next week's Tour Championship, where all have a mathematical chance at the $10 million bonus and are assured spots in every major except the PGA Championship next year.

Leishman gets another chance to win a FedEx Cup playoff event and grab one of the top five seeds at the Tour Championship.

"It's very quick down there so I just wanted to get something just landing on the green", he said.

"When you see the scores that were put up earlier, that's what you're comparing yourself to and I thought the golf course played a little too hard to really think a good score would be seven or eight-under in the afternoon", Spieth said.

McIlroy made five birdies, but carded a double bogey at the sixth and dropped another shot at the 13th. Although he managed five birdies - on the seventh, eighth, 12th, 14th and 15th, where he drove the green on the 334 yards par four that features water all the way down the left - and a bogey on the 13th, he failed to make any real inroads.
