Adam Scott will get a one-stroke lead over the weekend at the BMW 2022. The 42-year-old has been fantastic over two rounds at Wilmington Country Club and, had it not been for a blunder late Friday, he would have made a comfortable 36-hole margin.
Instead, Scott finds himself at the age of eight and battles some of the biggest names in the game, under the title Scotty Scheffler at center back. He is expected to regain the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings, joining world number 1 ranked Cameron Young, Jordan Spieth and Corey Conners in seventh.
Two hits outside the set pace are FedEx Cup darlings, including defending champion Patrick Cantlay, world number 3 Rory McIlroy and Xander Shaveli. Every member of this trio has lifted a trophy previously in East Lake and would want nothing more than to go into next week’s finale after winning the BMW Championship.
This large group of trackers will give Scott all he can handle as he sees a compact leaderboard half the field within six strokes of the lead.
Keep it closed here as CBS Sports will be tracking it all with live updates and analysis throughout the third round of the BMW 2022 Championship on Saturday.
