  • DFS PGA Optimal Lineups- BMW Championship

Tiger Woods reunited with an old friend and came within one shot of his career low score, an eight-under-par 62 that tied Rory McIlroy for the first-round lead at the BMW Championship in Pennsylvania.

Last year's Tour Championship victor, Xander Schauffele, leads the field at -13 after rounds of 63 and 64, with major championship winners Justin Rose and Keegan Bradley among those within striking distance. He was one over through 8 before birdieing two of the next three holes to get to one under for the day and nine under for the tournament. He is trying to win for the first this year.

Both Woods and McIlroy faded Friday.

"It was one of those days where it was out there", McIlroy said.

The top 30 players in FedEx Cup points after the BMW Championship advice to the PGA's final big event - the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Tiger Woods reads the 12th green during the first round of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 3, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Xander Schauffele is making the last one a little more hard. "It turned into even par, which is not what I needed to do today".

Tee times were moved up significantly in antiticipation of forecasted storms, and Woods couldn't manage to get off to the red-hot start that saw him make the turn in six-under 29 on Thursday.

JASON Day hopes the equal-best iron-play performance of his US PGA Tour career is the spark he needs to ignite a FedEx Cup play-offs charge after his slow start to the finals. "I feel like my game is in good shape and I'd love to get another crack at it out there and have a chance to take the lead". Winning remains elusive, a cold putter didn't do too much damage after starting with a 62.

A victory should be enough for Rose to reach No. 1 in the world, especially with Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka nine shots out of the lead.

As for Woods, he's still looking like a safe bet to make it to East Lake.
