Update: Rory moves into tie for lead

CARMEL, Ind. – It’s still early in the first round, but Rory McIlroy has moved into a tie with Phil Mickelson for the lead in Sunday’s final round of the BMW Championship.

McIlroy is 2 under through five holes and 17 under for the tournament. That equals Mickelson’s total, although Mickelson is now playing the par-5 fifth and  could soon break the tie.

Lee Westwood and Vijay Singh are tied at 16 under. Singh, the 54-hole co-leader with Mickelson, has opened with four consecutive pars.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, is even through six holes and 13 under for the tournament.

Ryan Moore is 4 under through nine holes and has moved into a tie for fifth. Moore started the week outside the top 30 in FedExCup points but is now projected to 27th.

Bubba Watson has the hottest round of the day; he’s 7 under through 17 holes and is 12 under for the tournament.

UPDATE (2:48 p.m. ET): Both Mickelson and Singh have birdied the par-5 fifth. That moves Mickelson into the solo lead at 18 under while Singh moves into a tie for second with McIlroy at 17 under.
