BMW Championship: Jason Day surges clear to tie PGA record

Jason Day moved closer to claiming the world number one spot by opening up a five-shot lead after the second round of the BMW Championships in Chicago.

The Australian added a 63 to his opening 61 for a 36-hole total of 124 that tied the all-time PGA Tour record.

Day, at 18 under par, is well ahead of Americans Daniel Berger and Brendon Todd who are tied for second.

Jordan Spieth is seven shots behind after a five-under 66, while Rory McIlroy (65) is nine strokes back.

Englishman Justin Rose is a further shot back on eight under after a second-round 64.

After heavy rain forced a suspension of the opening round, Day returned to Conway Farms early on Friday needing to hole a 44-yard wedge shot for an eagle that would have given him a 59 and tied another Tour record.
