Marc Leish­man fin­ished with a birdie for a 3-un­der 68 on Satur­day to ex­tend his lead to five shots over Ja­son Day and Rickie Fowler go­ing into the fi­nal round of the BMW Cham­pi­onship.

Leish­man gets an­other chance to win a FedEx Cup play­off event and get one of the top five seeds at the Tour Cham­pi­onship. It’s a much bet­ter op­por­tu­nity than he had two weeks ago at the TPC Bos­ton, when he shared the 54-hole lead with Justin Thomas and Jor­dan Spi­eth was right behind.

Fowler and Day failed to take ad­van­tage of the scor­ing holes on the back nine at Con­way Farms, and both had to set­tle for a 70. JU­TANU­GARN LEADS AT EVIAN » At Evian-Les-Bains, France, Moriya Ju­tanu­garn of Thai­land shot 3-un­der 68 to lead in the Evian Cham­pi­onship sec­ond round, and could join her younger sis­ter Ariya in the golf ma­jors record book.

Seek­ing to be the first sis­ters to both win ma­jors, Ju­tanu­garn’s 9-un­der to­tal was four shots clear of three play­ers.
