BMW Championship: Tiger Woods & Rory McIlroy share lead in Philadelphia

BMW Championship: Tiger Woods & Rory McIlroy share lead in Philadelphia

Still, but for a few narrow misses with a putter that had been so steady Thursday, Woods would've drawn close to Schauffele.

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.

"It was nice to make one like that up the hill to get things going", Woods told Golf Channel after the round.

He was near the lead when he finished his round, but numerous other 69 players in the field-only the top 70 in the FedEx Cup standings qualified for this event-were shooting similarly impressive scores on an immaculate day for scoring.

Tiger Woods make a fine start to the PGA Tour's BMW Championship in Pennsylvania.

McIlroy matched him but still left the course feeling a twinge of what might have been, for he actually had a golden opportunity to become the first European to shoot 59 on either of the game's two main circuits.

Woods was posing on his tee shot at the par-3 fifth, the sun glaring into him, and he couldn't figure out immediately where it went. He was at 9 under when Woods finished, only to make consecutive bogeys and finish with a two-putt birdie for a 62. He hit 16 of 18 greens and was bombing drives, missing just five fairways.

"It's been something I've been struggling with all year and it's been much better the last couple of weeks", he said.

Justin Thomas, Billy Horschel and Peter Uihlein (both 64) share fourth at six-under nearing the end of the opening day.

The 29 over Woods' first nine holes, the back nine at Aronimink, included four birdies and an eagle. He holed an 8-foot birdie putt on No. 2, part of a run six straight birdies. Kevin Na went low at 8-under for the day, matching Woods' and McIlroy's Thursday scores after carding an even-par 70 on Day 1.
