Jason Day, Rickie Fowler & Marc Leishman battling at BMW Championship

"We definitely, to be out here on Tour we give back a lot and BMW be able to give back as well to a student being able to go through college is huge", Day said, according to Golf.com.

Day is sponsored by Lexus.

Ask any pro, or even your typical weekend hacker, and you'll hear a familiar refrain: when the game is clicking, it feels like the birdies will never stop.

There was plenty of good stuff from the guys chasing him in the third FedEx Cup playoff event.

Leishman was at 16-under 126, two short of the 36-hole record Day set at Conway Farms two years ago on his way to a wire-to-wire, six-shot victory. His back was bothering him. "That's why earlier I said I'm going to donate that auto back to help another student because I am in a fortunate position and being able to not only impact one person but be able to impact another person's life, to be able to get them to go through college as well is huge".

Starting the day two back of Leishman, Day bounced back from a sloppy start featuring two bogeys with three birdies in his last four holes on the front side, before picking up an additional three shots on the inward half.

He already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds.

Day was brilliant on the ace, he smacked the shot with an iron.

"I was actually going to play a little bit left", he said.

"At the start of the year, I felt like I was kind of fighting an uphill battle with myself, trying to force things too much", he said.

Spieth played the first two rounds alongside PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas and world number one Dustin Johnson - who came into the tournament second and third in the race for the $10mn playoff bonus that will be up for grabs at next week's Tour Championship.

While the change at caddie this week offers an easy explanation for his sudden resurgence, Day believes the root cause is an internal one.

"I won my European Tour card after the 2007 Championship and I've played with my Dad a couple of times since - always very special experiences and times I'll never forget". When I was playing well, I didn't need to worry about it. I'd go in there with a good attitude.
