Lee Westwood heads into Sunday's BMW Championship final round firmly in contention after following Friday's seven under par 65 with a four under 68.
The world number four is tied third in Indianapolis on 15 under, one shot off the lead.
"I didn't make anything on the front nine," said Westwood, who played alongside Tiger Woods. "I hit the ball well but didn't take advantages of the chances I had. Even Tiger said my chip on ten was amazing and that kick-started my back nine a little bit."
His first time competing in the FedEx Cup, Westwood was asked about the event.
"I've been really impressed with how big a tournaments they are and how big a series it feels," he said. "They play around great golf courses; this week is another fair and honest test and the players at the top of the rankings have risen to the top."
Louis Oosthuizen made a charge on moving day, firing a four under 68 to go tied 13th at Crooked Stick Golf Club on 11 under.
Charl Schwartzel is tied 27th on seven under after a level par 72 third round.
Shiv Kapur is tied 13th at the KLM Open on six under, while Tommy Fleetwood is poised two shots behind following his four under 66 third round at Hilversumsche Golf Club.
Joining Fleetwood in tied 21st is Gregory Bourdy, who carded a one under 69. Darren Clarke is just outside the top 30 on three under after firing a 67, his lowest round of the week.
Chris Wood and Matt Baldwin are two under, while Richard Finch is one under. Defending champion Simon Dyson is level par.
At the Russian Challenge Cup, Alex Kaleka and Chris Lloyd are tied second, two shots off the lead on five under.
Peter Uihlein is tied seventh on three under, while Espen Kofstad is inside the top 20 on level par.
