Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy slip off pace at BMW Championship

It was an opportunity lost for Woods, who began the day tied for the lead with Rory McIlroy but dropped back to a tie for 12th, five shots back of Xander Schauffele, after bogeying the final two holes.

Woods said much of Thursday's success was down to him digging out a 19-year-old putter - used in 13 of his 14 major wins more than a decade ago. The list includes Tiger Woods, who shot 66 and made up no ground on the lead.

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

Hideki Matsuyama, who started the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 76, had a 64 and was in a group three shots behind that included Keegan Bradley, Alex Noren and Rickie Fowler.

And while DeChambeau admits to being a "little tired", he is eager to take on the Aronimink Golf Club course which played host to the 1962 PGA Championship and more-recently the PGA Tour's 2010 and 2011 AT & T National.

He enters the week 25th in the FedEx Cup standings and needs to stay in the top 30 to qualify for the Tour Championship.

One huge surprise the model is calling for: Woods, the only player to win the FedEx Cup a couple of times, stumbles this week and finishes outside the top 10.

Schauffele narrowly missed out on an automatic spot in Jim Furyk's United States Ryder Cup team and could earn the fourth and final wild card pick with a strong performance this weekend. Woods last won the tournament in 2009. I battled for the first 12 holes so it was nice to get a few birdies on the way in.

Jason Day has recaptured his early-season form to move into contention in the BMW Championship in Philadelphia, but one of the four Australians is under pressure to keep their season going.

"I hit it just as good and felt like I putted just as good".

Schauffele said he was on a mission, and the Ryder Cup was merely a byproduct. On Friday, when the average score was 67.33, the wedges spun too much to back pin positions.

The PGA Tour's on-site meteorologist Joe Halvorson laid out some best-case and worst-case scenarios on Saturday night for what Sunday might look like.

His form had since tailed off and he acknowledged that long-hitting Tony Finau, who also had top-10s at the USA and British Opens, was in pole position to grab the coveted spot.
