Golf: Rose tied for lead

Associated Press
LEMONT, Ill. ó Coming off his best round of the year, Justin Rose figured it couldn’t get much better in the BMW Championship. He was good enough Friday for a 3-under 68 and a share of lead with Mark Wilson.
Rose felt flat at times, especially early on the back nine at Cog Hill on a cool, overcast day in the Chicago suburbs. But a 3-iron into 30 feet for an eagle on the par-5 15th woke him up, and not even a bogey on the last hole changed his outlook on the day or the weekend of this FedEx Cup playoff event.
“You never quite know what to expect after playing so well in the first round,” Rose said of his opening 63. “Actually, my caddie said it’s the best round he’s seen in 20 years out there from a ball-striking perspective. So, there’s only one way to go from there. But today was good.”
It was even better for Wilson, who considers Cog Hill a home course after he moved to the area. Wilson again had a large following of friends and family, and he treated them to a good show. He ran off four straight birdies around the turn, starting with a wedge to tap-in range at No. 8, and was steady the rest of the way for a 66.
They were at 11-under 131.
