Leishman in box seat
BMW Championship leader Marc Leishman has vowed to atone for his recent crushing defeat in Boston as he chases his first wire- to- wire victory on the US PGA Tour.
The 33- year- old Leishman headlines an Australian assault on the leaderboard, with countrymen Jason Day and Cameron Smith in the mix at the penultimate FedEx Cup play- offs event in Chicago.
Fresh off losing a two- stroke lead going into the back nine on Sunday at TPC Boston two weeks ago, Leishman has steamrolled through a 70- man field to post a five- shot 54- hole lead at Conway Farms.
The Victorian was at 19 under par, with world No. 9 Day and Rickie Fowler each carding a 70 to share second at 14 under.
