Woods ties course record under pressure from rampant McIlroy

They had a one-shot lead over Xander Schauffele.

On Thursday, at the BMW Championship, Woods went out on the back nine in 29 and climbed into the lead at six-under.

Everything else felt that way Thursday in the BMW Championship, where Woods had his lowest score in an opening round in almost 20 years and his best score on the PGA Tour since his last victory more than five years ago.

Tiger Woods is certainly having an outstanding week.

McIlroy had a one-under 69 for a nine-under total, one shot ahead of 14-time major victor Woods, who looked furious with himself after he bogeyed his final two holes in a level-par 70.

Woods gave back two shots on his last two holes to shoot an even-par 70, and sits at 8-under after 36 holes.

It's never easy to back up a low round, but overnight rain made the Aronimink Golf Club course even more susceptible to low scoring.

Justin Rose lipped out a birdie attempt on the 18th green Saturday, but his par was nonetheless good enough to earn him the solo 54-hole lead. Only 30 of the 70 will make it to the Tour Championship at East Lake, which means that 40 of the players in this week's field won't make it to the final stage of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

US Open Semifinals: Who can spoil an All-American final?
It is the first time in the Open era that Japan is represented in the semi-finals of both the main draws at the same grand slam. It was another hot afternoon Wednesday, with temperatures in the 30s C, but feeling much hotter due to the humidity.

McIlroy threatened to steal the headlines from Woods.

DeChambeau's selection Tuesday as one of United States captain Jim Furyk's wildcard picks was a mere formality for the Florida-based golfer after he stormed to victory in the opening two legs of the FedEx Cup. The best indication of the benign nature was the fact that Tiger Woods shot a 66 and on 12-under only moved up one on the leaderboard, from a tie for 12 to a tie for 11.

The birdies started flowing on the first hole and kept rolling throughout the day.

BMW championship will start at 11:00 AM ET. "I know this putter", Woods told Golf Channel.

At the 385-yard par-4 13th, Steele got on in 2 and missed his par putt from 5 feet, finishing with a 3-putt bogey.

"You don't get many opportunities to break 60 and today was one of them", he said. I thought I'd play just a few events and here I am, playing a full schedule. The previous 16 times he was either leading or tied for second.
