The BMW Championship is a wet one, after 2.5 inches of rain fell in Lake Forest and on Conway Farms on Friday night and into Saturday morning.

If you add that to the Thursday night rains of 1.5 inches, Conway Farms has taken 4 inches of water on 48 hours. That might be enough to close some courses with flood conditions, but the crew at CF, has done the job and kept the PGA Tour on time, with round three going off as scheduled. The TV networks especially and the fans are pleased.

DSC05282 PGA Tour rep DougMilne and Jason Day

JASON DAY is rolling towards being the #1 golfer in the world, he is only 18 holes away.

Jason Day continues to be on roll and is looking like he will be the new #1 player in the world. Current #1 player Rory McIlroy shot himself into contention for a top 3 finish but still appears to be to far back to catch Day in the final round.

Day has shot 61-63 and 69 in the first three rounds at Conway Farms, which is good enough for a 6 shot lead over Scott Piercy and Daniel Berger.

Day leads McIlroy who is in fourth place by 7 shots and Rickie Fowler by 8 shots. Day admitted Round 3 is one he was glad to get behind him, saying that shooting 69 after his 61 and 63 of the last two days, felt like shooting 80. But he likes his six shot lead and looks forward to the challenge of winning on Sunday.

McIlroy knows there is a lot of work to be done if anyone is going to catch Day, and says Day will have to come back to the field a little bit, if anyone is to catch him. Rickie Fowler said it kind of feels like the battle is for second place, he might be right.
