Schauffele grabs BMW lead and boosts Ryder Cup chances

September 07, 2018

Xander Schauffele followed his opening round 63 with a 6-under 64 to take the second round lead of the PGA BMW Championship by two shots and increase his chances of getting picked for the final place on the US Ryder Cup team.

"It was nice to back up the 63 with a 64, something I've never done in my career so good timing for that," Schauffele said.

"I have thought a lot more about the Ryder Cup the past couple of weeks and I'm sort of in a position where I feel like a win is the only way I'd even be in consideration," Schauffele said.

Tony Finau, another possibility for the final team member, is currently tied for twelfth.

"Tony (Finau) is the guy right now," said Schauffele. "He just shot 64 as well. He's not making it easy on anyone else trying to get on that team. So hats off to him for playing really well."

Justin Rose is in solo second place two shots back at 129 after a 63 on Friday.

First round co-leaders Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy struggled, Woods closed with back-to-back bogeys and shot a 70 to drop to T12 while McIlroy ended T7 with a 69.
