Singh in driver's seat
Vijay Singh keeps giving himself chances to end four years without a PGA Tour victory. But the competition isn't getting any easier at the BMW Championship.
Singh made four straight birdies in the middle of his round and had to settle for a two-putt birdie from 15 feet on his last hole. It gave him a 6-under 66 and a one-shot lead going into the weekend at Crooked Stick. It's the second time in his last four tournaments Singh has had at least a share of the 36-hole lead.
One shot behind were Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, along with Ryan Moore.
Woods birdied three of his last four holes for a 67, while McIlroy overcame four bogeys for a 68. Both are going for a fourth win this year.
Briton Lee Westwood rocketed into contention with the round of the day, a seven-under 65 that featured six birdies, an eagle and one bogey, to sit two off the pace, while South Korea's Noh Seung-yul (66) is in the clubhouse at 10-under 134.
There will be no cut at the BMW Championship, with all 70 golfers in the elite field vying for one of 30 spots in the September 20-23 Tour Championship finale, in Atlanta, where the overall points winner gets a US $10 million bonus.
