Marc Leishman extends BMW Championship lead to three

Leishman has been the form Australian on Tour this year with a win and six top-10 results, but the 33-year-old Victorian says he'll draw inspiration from a memorable round in Chicago with Tiger Woods as he chases a third PGA Tour victory.

Carding a seven-under 64 in the second round, the American shot three birdies before the turn on Friday, followed by another three on the back nine, impressing the spectators with an eagle on the par-5 15th hole.

Jason Day holes out as he takes the lead in PGA Tour playoffs event.

Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds.

"We were trying to land it 182 (yards) and I kind of pushed it", said Day, who won the 2015 title at Conway Farms.

Like last week at the Dell Technologies Championship two weeks ago at TPC Boston.

"If I can give myself more birdie looks that'd be nice". The top-five seeds after the event are in contention to win a $US10 million bonus prize if they win the series-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Thomas also carded a 70 that left him in a group on 137 while Johnson closed with back-to-back bogeys in a 72 that left him languishing on one-over 143.

McIlroy won the Tour Championship past year to scoop the lucrative FedEx Cup bonus, but world number two Jordan Spieth leads the rankings.

Rory knows things are slipping away from him and ruefully said: "It's hard because I know that realistically there's not much chance of getting in next week, but I still want to go out there and play well. Last time I was here I was five shots better when I finished so I have go to try and catch up to my number and if I can hopefully if I can get to that winning score last time then can win".

More significantly, it left the former Shawnee Heights and Kansas standout clinging to the ever-so-important 30th spot in the projected FedEx Cup standings. "It isn't quite coming to together, it's about being patient".

McIlroy made five birdies, but carded a double bogey at the sixth and dropped another shot at the 13th.

On the seventh hole, Leishman chipped in beautifully before rolling the ball in on the long green for a birdie, before repeating the trick, putting in from beyond the fringe on the eighth.
