Tiger Woods fires best opening round in almost 20 years

Schauffele almost holed a wedge on his second hole, rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt in the middle of his round Friday and wound up with a 6-under in the BMW Championship for the lowest 36-hole score of his career and a two-shot lead over Justin Rose.

McIlroy plodded to a 69 to fall four strokes behind, while Woods (70) bogeyed the final two holes to slip five back. Finau made seven birdies in his round of 64 and goes into the final 36 holes at Aronimink just five shots behind. If Schauffele wins this week, it'll be very hard not to send him to Paris.

Tiger Woods electrified the gallery at the BMW Championship Thursday with one of the greatest opening rounds in his illustrious career, as the 42-year-old carded an unbelievable 62 at Aronimink Golf Club.

Tiger Woods fell off pace and Xander Schauffele made his move Friday in Round 2 of the BMW Championship.

American Xander Schauffele, who hopes to secure the last spot on the USA Ryder Cup team, is in third place with a 63, while Rickie Fowler, who played alongside Woods, returned from injury to shoot a 65.

Day missed the cut in the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston last week but he remains projected to go to the Tour Championship in Atlanta later this month inside the top 10 on the season-long points standings. These stats are a little skewed, as Aronimink's fairways are about as wide as Chicago's I-94, which could be why despite the impressive tee game, Tiger only managed an even par 70. "I'm not going to say it stings too bad because I'd much rather shoot 62 today and win the golf tournament Sunday than shoot 59 today and maybe not win".
