BMW Championship: Singh leads at halfway point

Published

Vijay Singh is more than twice the age of some of the players in the field this week at the BMW Championship. But the 49-year-old has the lead at 13-under par at the tournament, the last event before the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship.

Singh started the week in Carmel, Ind., wondering if he could advance to the next stage of the Playoffs for the FedExCup. He entered  49th in the points list, needing to advance to the top 30 to move on to the final round. After his 66 in Round 2 that included only one bogey, however, Singh is currently projected to occupy the fourth position in the points list.

“I’ve to keep it going,” Singh said. “I’ve been playing well for two days for a while now, but I need four days of good playing.

“Sooner or later, I think four days is going to happen, and hopefully it starts this week.”

Nipping at Singh’s heels are 23-year-old Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who were scheduled to play together in the penultimate pairing in Round 3 until weather concerns forced officials to have players tee off in threesomes on Saturday. This means McIlroy will be in the final group with Singh and Ryan Moore , who shot his second-straight 66 of the week to finish at 12-under with Woods and McIlroy, who shot 67 and 68 respectively.

First-round co-leader Webb Simpson stumbled after a bogey-free 64, shooting a 3-over 75 in Round 3. Currently, there are 32 players ahead of Simpson at 6-under or better, giving the BMW Championship one of the most densely packed, star-studded leaderboards of the year.

Also in contention are Lee Westwood and Indiana-native Bo Van Pelt (11-under), Seung-Yul Noh and Graeme DeLaet (10-under), Graeme McDowell, 2011 FedExCup Champion Bill Hass and Padraig Harrington (9-under).

Noh, DeLaet, McDowell and Harrington are all currently projected to finish outside the top 30 after Round 2, meaning they will have to make a weekend move to keep their Playoff hopes alive. On the bubble is Bill Haas (27), as well as Adam Scott (26) and John Huh (29) who are both at 8-under.

Photos from the 2024 PGA Championship

GolfWRX is on site this week at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, for the PGA Championship.

While we see fewer equipment changes and new gear seeding at major championships, we get a look at custom gear and looks into the bags of players we rarely see, which is just as exciting. In the case of the PGA Championship, this means a look at the gear some of the PGA Professionals who qualified for the tournament will be gaming, and LIV players, such as Jon Rahm and Patrick Reed.

Check out links to all our albums from Valhalla below and check back throughout the week as we continue to update.

GolfWRX is live this week at the Wells Fargo Championship as a field of the world’s best golfers descend upon Charlotte, North Carolina, hoping to tame the beast that is Quail Hollow Club in this Signature Event — only Scottie Scheffler, who is home awaiting the birth of his first child, is absent.

From the grounds at Quail Hollow, we have our usual assortment of general galleries and WITBs — including a look at left-hander Akshay Bhatia’s setup. Among the pullout albums, we have a look inside Cobra’s impressive new tour truck for you to check out. Also featured is a special look at Quail Hollow king, Rory McIlroy.

Be sure to check back throughout the week as we add more galleries.
