Marc Leishman maintains BMW Champs lead

  • BIGHORN's Jon Rahm headed to PGA Tour championship

He now holds a four-shot lead over Englishman Justin Rose who is 17-under with fellow Australian Jason Day and final group playing partner and world No.10 Rickie Fowler a further stroke back at 16-under. "A lot of tournaments you put three rounds together". Very easy to throw a mediocre round in there. "That's a good formula for success, and it's going to be tough tomorrow".

Some interesting facts for the factoidzzz. Leishman is now No. 7 in the FedExCup standings.

Leishman did not hit the heights of the opening two days as rounds of 62 and 64 earned him a three-shot lead at the halfway stage, but closest challengers Rickie Fowler and Jason Day were unable to make ground on the Australian on day three. He was 31st in that category entering the week.

It's been a season to forget for the 28-year-old, who is yet to register a win or a top-three finish on the PGA Tour, as the silverware drought continues.

"It's slowly building, " said Day, who began this year at No. 1 in the world and has dropped to ninth. Leishman now leads the BMW by five.

Justin Rose muscled his way into fourth place thanks to five birdies in a bogey-free 66 for a 12-under tally but admitted he has his work cut-out to reel-in the Aussie. The Olympic gold medalist from England said he noticed a slight uptick in the wind on Saturday.

Spaniard Jon Rahm carded a 65 in the third round to pull himself into a seven-way tie at 11 under.

"He's hitting it in the right spots on the greens and holing putts".

After his round, Leishman told Sky Sports Golf: "I'm feeling good".

"There was also my win in 2008 on the Web.com Tour (WNB Golf Classic) in Texas where I won by 12 shots, so I've done it a few times". "My swing hasn't been a hundred percent, maybe 90 percent". I'm visualizing the shots, hitting them a lot closer to the way I see it.
"Hit more than two ideal shots a round, you're having a really good ball-striking day".

"To have a lead is really nice but I showed (two weeks ago) a lot can happen on the back nine". "Quite happy with how he's happy because we're on the Presidents Cup team together but saying that, I mean he's going to be very hard to beat tomorrow".
