LAKE FOREST, Ill., Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Jim Furyk, coming off a historic 12-under 59 second round, recorded a 2-under 69 Saturday to establish a one-shot lead through 54 holes of the BMW Championship.

Furyk, who fired just the sixth 59 in PGA Tour history Friday, ended 54 holes at 13-under-par 200.

That was one better than the onrushing Steve Stricker, who zoomed up the leaderboard with a 7-under 64 to grab sole possession of second place at 12-under.

Second-round co-leader Brandt Snedeker notched an even-par 71, good for third at 11-under 202.

Zach Johnson carded a 2-under 69 to end the day in fourth at 10-under 203.

Five-time winner Tiger Woods finished Saturday alone in fifth at 9-under after a round of a 5-under 66, in which he carded birdies on six of the final seven holes.
