Leishman out to surpass Tiger experience at BMW Championship

Day came in to the week 28th in the FedExCup standings

Day's tee shot at the 188-yard par-three 17th landed just in front of the green, took a couple of bounces and trickled into the hole, much to the Australian's surprise. "So the combination of those two things on a PGA Tour course is not a very good one", Leishman said. "It was a lucky hole-in-one, I guess", Day told Golf Channel after carding a six-under-par 65 at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, where he won in 2015. He made a hole-in-one on the 17th hole with a 7-iron that turned into a payoff for multiple parties.

"I lost a little confidence in myself and my game, and the ability to go out and get the win", Day said.

The following year, he won his second World Golf Championship, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship. BMW awarded $100,000 to the Evans Scholars Foundation, and then Day chose to give the auto he won to the Evans Scholars, which will yield another full, four-year scholarship for another student.

American Patrick Cantlay is solo fourth at 10-under after a 65, while Italy's Francesco Molinari sits alone in fifth place at nine-under following his 65. Jason Day, Charley Hoffman and Jamie Lovemark were tied for second.

Brit confirmed dead after crocodile attack in Sri Lanka
It's understood he was dragged into a lagoon while washing his hands. "This is the first-known crocodile attack in Sri Lanka". FT managing editor James Lamont told the paper: "Our thoughts are with his family, friends and loved ones".

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

It hasn't been easy for everyone, particularly defending champion Dustin Johnson. "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". Phil Mickelson is trying to work his way into the top 30, and while he sputtered with two birdies, two bogeys and too many pars, he drilled an approach to 5 feet on the par-5 14th for an eagle. Second-placed Thomas also carded 70 to fall 11 strokes behind.

The BMW Championship is the penultimate event of the PGA Tour's $US67 million FedEx Cup series and will determine the all-important top-five seedings for next week's Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Leishman came into the BMW Championship ranked seventh in the FedEx Cup standings after finishing third at the Dell Technologies Championship.
