Driving the ball with laser-like accuracy, Leishman followed his opening 62 with a similarly impressive seven-under-par 64 at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Day's 13-under total left him alongside world No 10 Rickie Fowler (64) in second place, three shots behind countryman Leishman, who fired a seven-under 64 to get to 16-under par. "Seeing the last two days, I know I still have it in myself to be able to hit the correct shots and go out there and try and win".

After making an eagle Friday on the 585-yard 14 hole, Day is at 11-under par, one clear of Marc Leishman. If the hole-in-one was lucky, the eagle was inch-perfect execution.

For his efforts, BMW has made a 100,000 dollar (£73,500) donation to the Western Golf Association and Evans Scholars Foundation. So, hopefully I can keep doing what I'm doing. A bogey on 13th was made up with a birdie on 15th, but closing bogeys on 17th and 18th spoilt his card. 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. "I've had two eagles and a hole-in-one this week already, so everything's come in bunches". Defending champion: Dustin Johnson.

Rory McIlroy, requiring a top-five finish to have any chance of progressing to the season-ending Tour Championship, sits tied-50th following a two-under 69.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman had fielded a strong side as he demanded a reaction to Saturday's 3-0 defeat at home to Tottenham. Everton supporters are now calling for Koeman to be removed as manager as the team have started the season in poor form.


It's easy to overlook Leishman because the Australian has only two PGA Tour victories, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year.

The popular Northern Ireland golfer, now world No 6, will be looking for his first victory in the prestigious European Tour event, having finished runner-up in 2009, 2011 and 2014.

The 28-year-old Northern Irishman captured the FedEx Cup title last year - and its $10 million bonus jackpot - but is now projected to finish 60th unless he makes a big move over the final two round, estimating he needed "a couple of 65s" to make any impact.

McIlroy won the Tour Championship past year to scoop the lucrative FedEx Cup bonus, but world number two Jordan Spieth leads the rankings.
