Woods' lowest opening round since 1999 would have been bettered by McIlroy had the Northern Irishman not bogeyed two of his last three holes.

It was just the fourth time in 17 tournaments in 2018 that Woods opened with a round under par.

Schauffele, ranked 41st in the FedExCup, is projected to move to sixth with a victory.

Woods will hold a share of the first-round lead for the first time since the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship, a tournament he went on to win. A victory at Aronimink might even be enough for Jim Furyk to take the 24-year-old from San Diego as the final captain's pick for the Ryder Cup.

Tiger Woods was in top form at the first round of the BMW Championship, carding a 62.

"I made some great putts out there today including getting off to a better start than I have most of the season", he said.

But Woods made amends with a closing birdie at the par-five ninth, where he sank a seven-foot putt. The putt caught the lip.

"I know the release point and I know how it swings and my body morphs into a position where it understands where it needs to be to release the putter, because I've hit hundreds of millions of putts with that thing".

Rory McIlroy tees off during the first round of the BMW Championship on Thursday.

Among the other players Paris-bound, Justin Thomas shot 64 and Rickie Fowler 65.

Jordan Spieth couldn't keep it in play off the tee and didn't get under par until his 15th hole.

Starting at the 10th hole, the world number eight took advantage of wide fairways and soft greens to race to nine-under par with four holes to go at par-70 Aronimink. A day after making seven birdies and an eagle, he could manage just three birdies and added bogeys at the last two holes, including a three-putt on the 18th green. The crowd was much thinner for McIlroy, but those fans saw quite a show. He holed an 8-foot birdie putt on No. 2, part of a run six straight birdies.

McIlroy matched him but still left the course feeling a twinge of what might have been, for he actually had a golden opportunity to become the first European to shoot 59 on either of the game's two main circuits.
