Paul Casey and Ian Poulter both go into the final round of the BMW Championship in Chicago in a tie for fifth.

Paul Casey and Ian Poulter both go into the final round of the BMW Championship in Chicago – the third leg of the FedEx Cup play-off series – in a tie for fifth only two shots behind leader Ryan Moore.
Casey, controversially left out of Europe’s Ryder Cup team two weeks ago, had his third successive 69 – and could go to fifth in the world with victory tomorrow.
Poulter, who will earn his third cap at Celtic Manor on October 1-3 and was top-scorer last time, was in a share of second place on seven under par until he bogeyed the last for a 69 as well.
Moore, best known as the golfer who wears a tie while playing, fired a superb 66 to move up from ninth to first, a stroke ahead of fellow Americans Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson and also Korean Charlie Wi.
Justin Rose and Luke Donald slipped back to joint 14th with rounds of 71 and 72 respectively, while Tiger Woods climbed from 40th to 22nd with a 68.
That was one of the biggest moves of the day, but the world number one needs a bigger one over the closing 18 holes – only a top five finish is likely to see him qualify for the Tour Championship in Atlanta in a fortnight’s time.
