ST LOUIS (LALATE) – The BMW Championship Leaderboard 2013 live results has two golfers atop the FedEx Cup Playoffs today. Tee time for Tiger Woods is moments away. And while Tiger is impressing news with his standings and ranking currently, all eyes at the BMW Championship are on two golfers, Brandt Snedeker and Jim Furyk. Both are tied at eleven under, with a three stroke lead over the field.
Third round action for the live BMW Championship Leaderboard 2013 is about to begin moments from now. But BMW Leaderboard results currently have Snedeker and Furyk at eleven under. They have a three stroke lead over Zach Johnson who is currently in eighth place. But the pair have a five stroke lead over five golfers tied in fourth place currently, reps tell news.
Officials tell news that Nick Watney, Jordan Spieth, Kevin Streelman, Charl Schwartzel, and Ryan Moore are currently tied in fourth place at six under. Tiger Woods is back tied in third place on the BMW Leaderboard. Woods is four under currently. He shot a sixty-six on Thursday. But he failed to come back strong on Friday, shooting a seventy-two.
As reported previously on LALATE, the key on the BMW Leaderboard this Sunday is thirtieth place. Only the top 30 golfers on the BMW Leaderboard this weekend advance to the FedEx Cup Finals next week in Atlanta. So who is currently in trouble?
The big surprises for news include Phil Mickelson. Mickelson is currently tied in forty-seventh place. He has shot a seventy and seventy-four this week, and is currently two over. Ian Poulter and Jason Dufner are currently out of the top thirty. And the golfers on the brink of trouble include Henrik Stenson, surprisingly now in twenty-ninth place, along with Ernie Els and Bubba Watson. In fact, many of the top scoring golfers late in this PGA Season are currently ranked on the BMW Leaderboard Saturday at twenty-fourth or worse position.
But the man who made news yesterday was the number twenty-three ranked golfer on the PGA Tour currently Jim Furyk. He shot a 59 round Friday. He became the sixth player in PGA Tour history to deliver a 59 round on Friday. Furyk jokingly told ESPN “A very cool card!” He added “I said, ‘How many opportunities are you going to have in life to do this again?’” he said. “Got to take advantage of it. Tried to knock it in there tight and make it as easy on yourself as you can.” For live score results today click HERE.
