Leishman opens with a 62 to lead BMW Championship

Fellow Australian Jason Day (11/2) and American Rickie Fowler (5/1) were Leishman's nearest challengers on 14 under par, with Englishman Justin Rose (33/1) a further two strokes back in fourth.

Lovemark completed a blemish-free card with a final-hole eagle to make it a trio on seven under, while Fowler racked up six consecutive birdies from the 12th - including a 65-footer at the 17th. He is on minus one after two rounds, well back on joint-clubhouse leader Jason Day.

With Fowler and Day unable to apply significant pressure, Leishman reeled off a series of pars until he holed another good putt from mid-range at the 13th, and a deft up-and-down from the rear rough at the final hole yielded another birdie which saw him close on 19 under par.

Leishman holed 10 birdies to match his career-low score on the PGA Tour, posting a nine-under-par 62 in ideal conditions at Conway Farms in Lake Forest. I got to come out and play really good golf because he's not making any mistakes.

Chasing his second PGA Tour victory this year, history suggests Leishman can get the job done.

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 star-studded 70-man field to post a five-shot 54-hole lead at Conway Farms.

Phil Mickelson is trying to find his way into the top 30.

The US Women's Open champion mixed seven birdies with an eagle and a bogey for an eight-under 63 to take a two-shot lead over Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn.

"You got to factor they're going to continue to play great so that puts me kind of having to play a great round of golf. With the way I was hitting it, I'm actually quite happy".

Day, however, knows that overcoming Leishman could be a tall order on Sunday.

Marc Leishman has carried his white hot form into a third consecutive day of the BMW Championship, putting him on the cusp of the biggest win of his burgeoning career. Although it was a shocking move, Day seemed to suggest that he was blaming Swatton for his poor play, even though he knew otherwise. The last thing a golfer needs is for his caddie to be running afoul of protocol, just one more distraction.
