Day ace keeps him touch with Leishman

Lacking the magic he enjoyed over opening rounds of 62 and 64, the 33-year-old Leishman is fighting to maintain his cushion at the top with three birdies and two bogeys on moving day.

Former world number one Day, seeking his first victory in more than a year, carded a six-under 65, benefiting from what he called a "lucky" hole-in-one at the par-three 17th - where his tee shot hit in front of the green, bounced and rolled in. Although in some ways, Jason Day has been on top at Conway Farms for the last 24 months.

"I'm in a fortunate position, being able to not only impact one person but be able to impact another person's life", Day said.

"It was a lucky hole-in-one, I guess".

Marc Leishman has a short memory when it comes to golf, which only helped him at the BMW Championship. "I can't get too far ahead of myself".

"It's nice when you can get on a run like this and hopefully I can keep it going". Jamie Lovemark and Charley Hoffman also opened at 64.

The generous Day then donated the BMW M760i he won for the ace to the Evans Scholar foundation which provides college scholarships to caddies. Defending champion: Dustin Johnson.

American Patrick Cantlay is solo fourth at 10-under after a 65, while Italy's Francesco Molinari sits in fifth place at nine-under following his 65.

It's certainly been a lean year for Day, one that started with him as the world's top-ranked golfer and saw him show up to this week's event without a spot in the Tour Championship assured. He shot 69 and was at 7-under 135, in a tie for 12th. Second-placed Thomas also carded 70 to fall 11 strokes behind.

It's easy to overlook Leishman because the Australian has only two PGA Tour victories, including the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier this year.

The 28-year-old Northern Irishman captured the FedEx Cup title last year - and its $10 million bonus jackpot - but is now projected to finish 60th unless he makes a big move over the final two round, estimating he needed "a couple of 65s" to make any impact.

The BMW Championship is the penultimate event of the FedEx Cup series and will determine the top-five seedings for next week's Tour Championship.
