Rory McIlroy, in pursuit of his fourth FedExCup victory, showcased his skill with a bogey-free 65 to take the early lead at the BMW Championship in Illinois. Despite an erratic performance off the tee, McIlroy’s five birdies propelled him to a flawless round at Olympia Fields Country Club.

Currently ranked third in the season-long standings, McIlroy’s quest for a record-breaking FedExCup triumph saw him navigate the course with finesse. Although he found only three fairways, the four-time major champion capitalized on his opportunities. A missed birdie attempt on the fourth hole and a par on the par-five first failed to deter him. A 12-foot gain on the seventh hole and a 15-foot putt on the ninth propelled him to a front-nine score of 33.

McIlroy’s back nine was equally impressive, as he began with a birdie and exhibited deft skill from a greenside bunker on the par-five 15th. A remarkable chip-in from behind the 17th green punctuated his bogey-free opening round.

Reflecting on his performance, McIlroy stated, “Certain courses on the PGA Tour allow for an aggressive approach, where missing the fairway doesn’t necessarily spell trouble.”

The tournament also saw notable performances from Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm, who remain strong contenders for the title. Golf enthusiasts can catch the action live on Friday from 3pm via the red button and 6pm on Sky Sports Golf.”
