2022 BMW Championship leaderboard: Live updates, full coverage, golf scores in Round 3 on Saturday

Adam Scott will take a one-stroke lead into the weekend at the 2022 BMW Championship. The 42-year-old has been terrific through two rounds at Wilmington Country Club, and if not for a late blunder on Friday, would have commanded a comfortable margin with 36 holes to go.

Instead, Scott finds himself at 8 under and in a battle with some of the biggest names in the game, headlined by Scottie Scheffler at just one back. Projected to recapture the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings, the world No. 1 is joined by Cameron Young, Jordan Spieth and Corey Conners at 7 under.

Two strokes off the pace set are past FedEx Cup darlings, including defending champion Patrick Cantlay, world No. 3 Rory McIlroy, and Xander Schauffele. Each member of this trio has previously raised a trophy at East Lake and would love nothing more than to go into next week’s finale fresh off a victory at the BMW Championship.

This large batch of pursuers will give Scott everything he can handle as a compressed leaderboard sees half the field within six strokes of the lead. 

Keep it locked here as CBS Sports will be keeping track of everything with live updates and analysis throughout Round 3 of the 2022 BMW Championship on Saturday.

Patrick Cantlay gets in the clubhouse at 12 under

The reigning FedEx Cup champion will all but likely head into the final round with the solo lead. Scottie Scheffler and Adam Scott are still on the golf course at 10 under, but are unlikely to catch Cantlay. This marks the defending champion’s first 54-hole lead since last season’s Tour Championship.

Quite the comeback from Rory McIlroy

Hitting only two fairways through 17 holes, Rory McIlroy has reached 8 under for the tournament and is still in this thing. With Patrick Cantlay missing yet another short putt, he is only three strokes off the lead and may still have a chance to win this tournament with another birdie on the last hole.

The game within the game

Adam Scott is now two strokes off the lead after a bogey on the par-3 13th and if not careful could drop out of Tour Championship contention. He is now projected to move to 28th in the FedEx Cup standings and will need to balance the desire to win the BMW Championship with that of qualifying for East Lake.

Cantlay catapults into the lead

Holing out for eagle on the par-5 14th, the defending champion finds his name alone at the top of the leaderboard. Sitting at 12 under, he stands one clear of his playing competitor Xander Schauffele and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. He would become the first person to successfully defend a postseason event.

Some separation occurring

Xander Schauffele and Scottie Scheffler have gotten to 11 under and command a one stroke lead over the likes of Patrick Cantlay, Adam Scott and Scott Stallings. However, past them, the closest man is Collin Morikawa who tied for the round of the day and is in the clubhouse at 9 under. If the leaders are able to extend this lead, they will eliminate the potential number of winners.

Scheffler joins Schauffele at the top

Scottie Scheffler has made birdie on the par-4 eighth to reach 10 under and join Xander Schauffele. The world No. 1 is projected to return to the top of the FedEx Cup standings as of now and has turned his putter into a weapon at Wilmington CC. Coming into the week, he had lost strokes on the greens in seven of his last nine tournaments.
