MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) Justin Thomas opened with five straight birdies, added a pair of eagles and shattered the course record at soft, vulnerable Medinah with an 11-under 61 to take a six-shot lead into the final round of the BMW Championship.

Thomas hit 5-wood to 2 feet for an eagle on No. 10, holed out from 180 yards with an 8-iron on No. 16 and eight birdies.

He was at 21-under 195, six shots clear of Tony Finau and Patrick Cantlay, and with a clear path to his first victory in a year. It also would give him the FedEx Cup lead going into the Tour Championship next week at East Lake.
