Marc Leishman moves three clear of Jason Day at BMW Championship

Spieth-Jordan-USNews-Getty-FTR

Day still feels far away from 2015, when he won the PGA Championship and a pair of FedEx Cup playoff events.

"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".

Jason Day holes out as he takes the lead in PGA Tour playoffs event. "I think when you do get ahead of yourself, that's when bad stuff can happen".

"I'm in a fortunate position, being able to not only impact one person but be able to impact another person's life", Day said.

Leishman was at 16-under 126, two short of the 36-hole record Day set at Conway Farms two years ago on his way to a wire-to-wire, six-shot victory.

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.

"[I am] very pleased with how the last two days went", Day said. Conway Farms is hosting the BMW Championship for the third time in the last five years.

Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady "GGG" Golovkin: Weigh-In - 3:30 pm EST
There have been reports that Alvarez might've had a tough weight cut, but GGG seemed well on track to make it 160 pounds. It's a fight that will force a silence over a city in love for 50 years now with the boxing game.

Spieth heads the FedExCup standings -- and the race for the $US10 million ($F20m) bonus awarded to the overall season champion -- with only next week's Tour Championship in Atlanta remaining after this week.

Points leader Spieth shot 70 to trail by nine.

The 24-year-old Smith needs at least a fourth-placed finish to advance to next week's 30-man Tour Championship.

But Day need only look back to previous year for a source of inspiration, as Rory McIlroy flipped a mediocre season on its head with a pair of postseason wins that netted the FedExCup title.

Marc Leishman left his clubs in the garage during his week break from the FedEx Cup playoffs and it didn't make a difference. Half my mind is what I'm doing right now, half is planning what I am doing over the next three months to come out and be a better golfer than I have been this year", said McIlroy, adding: "The frustrating thing is I know it is in there somewhere.

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.
