Marc Leishman moves three clear of Jason Day at BMW Championship

Day's 13-under total leaves him with a share of the clubhouse lead alongside world No.10 Rickie Fowler (64) and countryman Leishman, who has picked up four shots through 12 holes. "It was a lucky hole-in-one, I guess", Day said after his second ace on tour. He hit an eagle on that hole and made par on the next two before writing a 1 on his scorecard on No. 17.

The generous Day then donated the BMW M760i he won for the ace to the Evans Scholar foundation which provides college scholarships to caddies.

Watch the BMW Championship throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports Golf. Day was two-under par heading onto hole No. 14. Jamie Lovemark and Charley Hoffman also opened at 64. "So I try to take all the positives out of that, learn from the bad stuff I did and hopefully use that, not just this week but the rest of my career".

Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds. "But those (ball-striking) statistics aren't great", Day said. Defending champion: Dustin Johnson. The world's No. 1 player can' seem to buy a putt, and even when he started to make a little progress, he finished bogey-bogey by taking two chips to get on the 17th green and hitting into the water on the 18th. American Patrick Cantlay was alone in fourth after a 65 for 132.

The Northern Irishman needs a top-four finish to reach the Tour Championship, the final Tour event of the season.

The popular Northern Ireland golfer, now world No 6, will be looking for his first victory in the prestigious European Tour event, having finished runner-up in 2009, 2011 and 2014.

The 28-year-old Northern Irishman captured the FedEx Cup title last year - and its $10 million bonus jackpot - but is now projected to finish 60th unless he makes a big move over the final two round, estimating he needed "a couple of 65s" to make any impact.

It's easy to overlook Leishman because the Australian has only two PGA Tour victories, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year. It's an ebb and flow for players at the top level, all of whom vacillate throughout the year while trying to find the sparse middle ground that yields both ample focus and a sufficiently loose approach.
