Leishman backs up good start with a low score at BMW

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.

Now there are advantages to having some degree of anonymity, he says.

Fowler got off on the right foot by sinking a 25-foot eagle putt on the opening hole, but mustered just one birdie the rest of the day.

Jason Day holes out as he takes the lead in PGA Tour playoffs event.

With Fowler and Day unable to apply significant pressure, Leishman reeled off a series of pars until he holed another good putt from mid-range at the 13th, and a deft up-and-down from the rear rough at the final hole yielded another birdie which saw him close on 19 under par.

The Australian opened with a round of 62 and briefly looked like carding another on Friday, only for a bogey at the 17th to ensure that the chasing pack remain on his coat tails entering the weekend. I got to come out and play really good golf because he's not making any mistakes.

His compatriot Jason Day, the 2015 champion, was nursing a stiff back but carded a 64 that was matched by Americans Charley Hoffman and Jamie Lovemark, while Jordan Spieth was among a group who shot 65s.

Kevin Anderson over the moon after entering maiden Slam final
This time, he takes on those two greats of the game in reverse order: del Potro beat Federer in the quarterfinals Wednesday. The Spaniard earned the only break in the first set in the seventh game and took the first set in 34 minutes, 6-4.

He is 51st in the FedEx Cup standings and needs to be in the top 30 to reach next week's Tour Championship, where the victor gets a $10m bonus.

After a rocky 16 months without a victory, compounded by back problems and motivational issues, Day, 29, decided to make the switch and put one of his old buddies on the bag with just two events to play in the PGA Tour season.

During NBC's telecast Saturday, Jim Mackay, Phil Mickelson's former caddie who now works as an analyst, called Leishman, "the most underrated player in golf".

Leishman is taking nothing for granted, after surrendering a two-shot lead two weeks ago and fading to third at the Dell Technologies Championship.

"Leish is playing spectacular", Day said.

"Of course, not as many birdies today but the conditions were quite a bit different so overall really happy with the round". "Hopefully I can just play well, do the right things and not worry about the result too much, as hard as that will be". If Day or Fowler intend on catching Leishman, it likely will require a super-low round. "I want to be out there trying to make birdies".
