Tiger Woods & Rory McIlroy share lead in Philadelphia

Tiger Woods & Rory McIlroy share lead in Philadelphia

Woods, who was this week named as a wildcard pick for the Ryder Cup, said: "I hit it just as well and putt it just as well". I missed a couple of short ones and I felt the greens were a little slower today. I think I've only done that once in my career.

Justin Rose will head into the weekend of the BMW Championship just two off the lead as Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods endured tough second days in Philadelphia.

Woods made three birdies and three bogeys and has a 36-hole score of 8-under 132.

Rickie Fowler, who played alongside Woods on Thursday, called it a "good, solid round of golf".

"I've hit millions of putts with it", Woods said later.

But the longest putt he made on day two at Aronimink was six feet. He would have one more day to change that.

Woods, whose 79 PGA titles are three shy of Sam Snead's record, began on the back nine and opened with a 20-foot birdie putt at the par-4 10th hole, then added back-to-back birdie putts from 13 feet at 12 and 10 feet at the 13th hole. "I wasn't doing much". The 29-year-old recovered with a birdie on the last to ensure a share of the opening-round spoils with Woods.

The Senate panel must approve Kavanaugh's confirmation before a vote by the full Senate, where Republicans hold a 51-49 majority. Fox News said it had obtained emails showing graphic and violent threats to Ashley Kavanaugh, who married the judge in 2004.

Chase Koepka, the younger brother of U.S. Open and PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka, shot 65.

Like Woods, McIlroy mixed a birdie and a bogey on the front side and bobbled again at 11, going to 1-over for the day and dropping back to 7-under for the tournament.

Following a par at the 17th, Tiger needed a birdie on the 18th to shoot his first sub-30 round since the second round of the 2007 Tour Championship and did just that.

Jason Day (64) and Justin Thomas (67) are level with McIlroy on nine under, while Tony Finau matched Schauffele's score to get to eight-under.

Australia's Dimitrios Papadatos leads by four shots on 16-under par thanks to a second successive, eight-under 63 with Sharvin tied 29th on five-under after a 66 and Galbraith three-under after a 70. The crowd was much thinner for McIlroy, but those fans saw quite a show. "It was nice to post a good round today and we go off early tomorrow, so it'll be a quick turnaround".

Fleetwood was joined on seven under by Open champion Francesco Molinari, who gave Bjorn further reason to cheer with a seven-birdie 63, while Jon Rahm and Henrik Stenson will both look for fast starts on Saturday after they fired 69s to close on five under.
