Australian Marc Leishman wins PGA Tour BMW Championship

18 November 2017 | By




Australia’s Marc Leishman has smashed Tiger Woods’ tournament record in scoring a superb wire-to-wire victory at the US PGA Tour’s rich BMW Championship in Chicago.

Starting the final round with a five-shot lead, 33-year-old Leishman

carded a four-under-par 67 at Conway Farms to finish at 23 under par

, five strokes clear of Rickie Fowler (67) and Justin Rose (65) who tied for second.

Fellow Australian Jason Day continued his late season resurgence with a 69 to be outright fourth at 16 under

Leishman’s total score of 261 was one shot better than the existing 72-hole

tournament record of 262 Woods posted in 2007.

It is Leishman’s second win of 2017, following his triumph

at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March, and his first wire-to-wire victory

on the PGA Tour, having led after leading all four rounds in this penultimate

FedEx Cup play-offs event.              

The Warrnambool  Golfers win also comes with the added bonus of

climbing into the top-five seeds for this week’s Tour Championship.
