Leishman extends advantage as Rose and Day lurk

By becoming the first player to make an ace at Conway Farms this week, BMW contributed $100,000 to the Evans Scholars Foundation that will pay for a four-year tuition.

Day said it didn't matter that he has a sponsorship deal with Lexus and really didn't need another auto.

"My last hole-in-one was at Turning Stone in 2008, so I've had a bit of a dry spell", he said. The game's in a really good spot but the way the course is getting, you've got to be right on your game.

But the former world No 1 paid the price for finding a greenside bunker at the 11th and, like Fowler, Day barely threatened any pins down the stretch as he closed with seven straight pars to lose ground on the resolute leader. Instead, he gave up the top ranking to Dustin Johnson within two months and has slipped all the way to No. 9.

McIlroy won the FedEx Cup previous year but the Northern Irishman is set to relinquish his crown with a Tour Championship berth virtually out of reach as he continues to struggle at the BMW Championship. His back was bothering him.

Day, who is seeking his first win in more than a year, announced a split with longtime caddie Col Swatton at the start of the week, and he plans to have Reardon on the bag next week at the Tour Championship should he qualify.

Others in the top 10 are Washington, Toronto , Dallas , Chicago , Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Seattle, Amazon's current home. The company estimates that investments in Seattle between 2010 and 2016 added $38 billion to the city's economy.

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

"I've got to come out and play really good golf because he's not making any mistakes", Day said.

But McIlroy is nearly certain to have an unscheduled week off next week as he put together a mixed-bag of a 70 which featured five birdies, including three in a row on the front nine, two bogeys and one double-bogey at the 14th after he carved his drive out-of-bounds.

Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds. Fowler holed out a chip for eagle on the 14th hole. The ball landed in rough just short of the green, hopped out and rolled into the cup. So, hopefully I can keep doing what I'm doing.

"We were trying to land it 182 (yards) and I kind of pushed it".

The BMW Championship is the penultimate event of the PGA Tour's $US67 million FedEx Cup series and will determine the all-important top-five seedings for next week's Tour Championship in Atlanta.
