Phil Mickelson made 10 birdies in his round of 8-under 64 to share the lead Saturday at the BMW Championship when Vijay Singh three-putted his final hole.
Mickelson and Singh, both in the World Golf Hall of Fame, still have to fight off perhaps the strongest leaderboard in golf all year.
PGA champion Rory McIlroy birdied his last hole for a 69 and joined former world No. 1 Lee Westwood (68) at one shot behind. Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott were among those another shot back, with Tiger Woods lurking just three shots out of the lead after a 71.
The top 11 players on the leaderboard have combined to win 25 major championships, setting up what should be a wild round Sunday at Crooked Stick.
