Woods off to hot start at BMW Championship

Justin Rose back in the Philly area and at Aronimink feeling good vibes

Every shot means so much this time of the year, and the last two holes Saturday at the BMW Championship might mean even more.

After starting the week No. 41 in the rankings, he's projected to move to sixth with a win, but his first title in almost a year would also make U.S. Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk's decision more hard with one wildcard selection remaining. Tiger Woods went from a share of the lead to having to catch up again.

McIlroy, who shared the overnight lead with Woods for the first time in their illustrious careers, followed up his first-day 62 with a 69 and is at 9-under.

Matsuyama carded seven birdies against a lone bogey at the Aronimink Golf Club and sits at 10-under.

Right now, using the PGA Tour's projections, that group includes DeChambeau, Rose, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Tony Finau.

He enters the week 25th in the FedEx Cup standings and needs to stay in the top 30 to qualify for the Tour Championship.

"I hit it just as good and putt it just as good", Woods said.

Russia joins Iran in support of Syrian Idlib offensive
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets with Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Damascus , Syria , Sept. 3, 2018. But analysts say there is little that it can do in the face of Russian and Syrian resolve to root out the fighters .

The Swede tamed the blustery conditions at Lighthouse Golf and Spa Resort, carding a five-under 66 to lead by a shot from Peter Baker and former Irish Open champion Stephen Dodd.

"I hit a lot of attractive putts that were on top of the edge and then obviously hit a couple bad ones on the last hole". "I lose strength and I lose power and endurance".

Schauffele, the British Open and Players Championship runner-up, improved his case for being given the final captain's pick for the American squad in the Ryder Cup showdown against Europe at the end of the month in France. Give these pros a course this soft and they will go to town - and so they painted it red.

"But then it was a weird day as they put a lot of the tees forward and while the course was very wet from all the rain we had last night, if you didn't shoot 65 you were losing ground".

At stake for Rose is moving to No. 1 in the world for the first time in his career.

Where is the BMW Championship? . I got a couple rounds in front of me, 36 holes to try and win this tournament.

Ian Poulter's chances of a Ryder Cup pick took a slight knock after missing the cut and falling seven spots into 45.
