The Jason Day train rolls through Chicago

The Jason Day train rolls through Chicago

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jason Day was in such a zone that he didn't even know the score.

He nearly chipped in for eagle on his second straight hole & threw his head back in despair, perhaps expecting everything to go in Thursday at the BMW Championship. The birdie put Day at 10-under par with one hole remaining, & moments after he hit his tee shot on No. 9, the horn sounded to stop play because of thunderstorms.

Day smashed that tee shot 346 yards with the wind at his back, leaving him 44 yards to a front pin.

LAKE FOREST, Illinois, Sept 15 (Reuters) – Jordan Spieth goes into this week's BMW Championship after missing consecutive cuts for the first time in his remarkable career but, far from being concerned, he puts that down to simply "two offensive weeks".

The Masters & U.S. Open champion has made the most of extra time off following his early exit from the Deutsche Bank Championship 10 days ago & pronounced himself rejuvenated with his game "in a solid state" for Thursday's opening round.

"Everything feels normal, everything is on point," world number two Spieth told reporters at Conway Farms Golf Club on Tuesday while preparing for the third of the PGA Tour's four lucrative playoff events.
