Aussies holding sway to lead way
MARC Leishman and Jason Day have produced stunning individual performances to set up an all-Australian final grouping for the BMW Championship’s third round.
The Australian contingent at Conway Farms in the US state of Illinois had a superb day out with Cameron Smith joining Leishman and Day inside the top 10 through 36 holes.
Leishman backed up his opening nine-under-par 62 with a hot 64 on day two, with a 16-under total increasing his lead to three shots over world No.9 Day, who produced a hole-in-one during a 65, and world No.10 Rickie Fowler (64).
Day, who replaced longtime caddie Colin Swatton for close mate Luke Reardon on tournament eve, sits at 13under and will play in the final group with Leishman.
