The BMW Championship heads toward weekend play as Round 2 comes to a close with many of golf's best players and biggest names still in the hunt. With FedEx Cup points at play, each tournaments hold importance, as the year draws to a close. We should be in for a good finale this weekend.

Here's a look at where some of golf's top stars are after 36 holes, along with predictions as to where they will finish.


Tiger Woods

Tiger continues his pattern of playing really well on Thursday and Friday, as he is now 12 under par and finds himself merely one stroke away from current leader Vijay Singh.

Woods' performance evened up in the second round, as his first-round performance saw him shoot for a better overall score but also saw him earn two bogeys. Woods shot five birdies while avoiding going over par even once and is really putting the ball well.

As long as Woods can keep up his accuracy, he'll be in the mix as the tournament progresses through the weekend.


Rory McIlroy

McIlroy, who is currently ranked as the No. 1 golf player in the world right now has continued to show he's always in the mix at the BMW Championship.

Despite cooling down a bit after shooting eight below par in the first round, McIlroy finds himself one stroke behind Singh for the lead and in a perfect position to come away with this third win in four weeks.

McIlroy shot four under par in the second round despite four bogeys. An eagle on No. 9 highlighted his day and saved this performance from putting him at a disadvantage in Rounds 3 and 4.


Adam Scott

Adam Scott is nowhere to be found on the top-10 leaderboard as the tournament heats up after finishing T-7 at the Deutsche Bank Championship last week.

Scott is currently ranked No. 6 in the world and is staying in range to make a strong push this weekend. At eight under par, he is only five strokes off of the lead. Scott struggled a bit in the first two rounds last week, firing back-to-back 69's before shooting a 68 and 66 to finish out and make a run to the top-10.

With a close field at the top, it's conceivable that Scott will right the ship once again and find himself in contention over the weekend.
