Marc Leish­man got up-and­down from a tough lie be­hind the 18th green for one last birdie that gave him a three­un­der 68 and ex­tended his lead at the BMW Cham­pi­onship at Lake For­est, Ill,, to five shots over Ja­son Day and Rickie Fowler go­ing into the fi­nal round at Con­way Farms.

Macken­zie Hughes of Dun­das, Ont., is the low Cana­dian at 9 un­der af­ter a 69. Adam Had­win (70) of Ab­bots­ford, B.C., is 1 un­der.


Moriya Ju­tanu­garn of Thai­land shot a three-un­der 68 to lead the Evian Cham­pi­onship sec­ond round by one shot on Satur­day in Evian-les-Bains. She could join her younger sis­ter Ariya in golf’s record book as the first sis­ters to win a ma­jor ti­tle. Ariya, who was top-ranked this sea­son, won the 2016 Women’s Bri­tish Open.
