Day bags hole-in-one, shares BMW lead

Marc Leishman will take a five-shot lead into the final round

"The Alfred Dunhill Links is a great, late season event and I really enjoy the format".

Starting Friday two back of Leishman, Day bounced back from a sloppy start featuring two bogeys with three birdies in his last four holes on the front side, before picking up an additional three shots on the inward half.

He was almost just as good Friday with a 7-under 64 to open a three-shot lead over Jason Day and Rickie Fowler going into the weekend at Conway Farms.

The 29-year-old came back from three bogeys to put in another spectacular performance with an eagle on the 14th, ending round two with a six-under 65. Cantlay returned after three years away to cope with a severe back injury and the death of his close friend and caddie, Chris Roth, who was hit by a vehicle as they were walking to dinner.

"I would love to sign off on a good note, it would be nice to have something positive to go into the off season with but I am excited to get ready for next year".

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

Jordan Spieth, No. 1 in the FedEx Cup after successive runner-up finishes in the playoff events, only managed a 70 and joined Mickelson in the group at 135. But with the birdies once again falling at Conway Farms, they still serve as a reminder of just how much talent he possesses - and how quickly the smile can return once the game starts trending in the right direction.

Leishman finished third two weeks ago at the TPC Boston and moved to No. 7 in the FedEx Cup.

The world number 22 has won twice on the PGA Tour, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida in March. That was his phrase, though apparently he's heard it Down Under, too. The BMW Championship will go to Aronimink outside Philadelphia next year and return to the Chicago area in 2019 at Medinah. Then, he was paired with Tiger Woods in the final round at Cog Hill.

Day didn't see the entirety of the shot, turning his head away from dust that flew into his eyes.

But that was a big day for Leishman. That's no longer an issue.

Leishman is now a projected 4th in the Fedex Cup points table and if he can remain inside the top four heading into next week's Tour Championship then he controls his own destiny in search of the US$10 million FedEx Cup bonus as any player inside the top five would win the top prize with victory in Atlanta.
