Thomas, Kokrak Tied for BMW Lead at 65

Woods is one of five players who has shot the course record, doing so in the 2006 PGA Championship that he won. Players 6-10 start at 4 under; players 11-15 start at 3 under; players 16-20 start at 2 under; players 21-25 start at 1 under; and players 26-30 start at even par.

When his day ended he sat six shots back of Justin Thomas and Jason Kokrak who are tied for first at 7 under.

Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods need to climb the leaderboard to reach the Tour Championship.

The most important worry for Woods starting Thursday at Medinah in suburban Chicago, seeking his first victory since capturing the Masters in April, is to play his way into next week's season-ending US PGA Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Billy Horschel (50/1): Horschel won the BMW, Tour Championship and FedEx Cup title in 2014.

But Woods was in a tie for 51 when he left the grounds. "The course is pretty hard and I played pretty solid today", said Kang, who is now ranked 42 on the FedExCup points list. "My dad [caddie Jimmy Johnson] and I just kind of said that we were going to have to guess out there and just try to find something".

This is the next phase", the entertainment magnate said . "This is the next thing because there's two parts of the protest". Jay-Z told reporters, "I think we forget that Colin's whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice.


"Now I'm hitting it a bit better, so I can go a little tighter at the flags and lean on the short game if I need to". Now 12 on the standings, he needs a projected top-four finish and other results to go his way to have a chance of making it to Royal Melbourne Golf Club in December.

"I'm hoping to put myself in the top eight [in the Presidents Cup standings]". "I'm trying to win this tournament just like anybody else in this field and trying to get to East Lake and trying to get to a place where a lot of things changed for me past year and hopefully I can make that happen".

Matsuyama birdied five of his opening nine holes and closed the day by gaining back-to-back shots as he improved to 12 under at the halfway stage, ahead of American pair Patrick Cantlay (67) and Tony Finau (66). "Three- to 5-under par would have been a good score considering how well I hit it".

"Didn't chip it, didn't make that many putts and consequently I'm one under", said Woods, who swung freely and showed no signs of discomfort.

Woods - a two-time BMW Championship victor - is in serious danger of missing the trip to the Tour Championship after carding back-to-back 71s. He's now projected in 47 place in the FedEx Cup standings.

"I am so far out of East Lake", he said.
