LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Brandt Snedeker has birdied seven straight holes to open a two-stroke lead at the BMW Championship.
Snedeker's streak started at the 13th hole when he made a 14-footer. Birdies from 15, 8, 10, 37, 6 and 18 feet followed.
The streak matched the best sub-par stretch of Snedeker's career when he went 7 under for seven holes on the North Course at Torrey Pines during the 2007 Buick Invitational.
Mark Calcavecchia holds the PGA TOUR mark for consecutive birdies of nine during the 2009 Canadian Open.
Snedeker has seven holes remaining -- five par 4s, one par 3 and one par 5 -- as he stalks the course record of 62 and a potential 59.
