Bryson DeChambeau put together a stellar round of golf during Day 2 of the BMW Championship on Friday.

With an outstanding 12-under 60, the American golfer stormed into a one-shot lead and set his career-best score at a PGA Tour event.

DeChambeau came out of the gates with a scorching start, birdieing the first two holes and eagling the fourth. At the end of the front nine, the red-hot golfer was 7-under on the round with five birdies and an eagle. After three more birdies on the back nine, he set himself up for an even more incredible round with another eagle on 16.

Sitting at 12-under heading into the 17th hole, the 27-year-old golfer needed just one birdie in the final two holes to break into the coveted under-60 club. After a par on the 17th, DeChambeau set himself up beautifully on the 18th green -- knocking his approach shot to just over six feet.

Unfortunately, the former U.S. Open Champion pulled the putt.

If DeChambeau had managed to sink this putt, he would've become just the 28th player in the history of professional golf to score under 60 in an official event.

This bogey-free round came just one day after his three-bogey affair on Thursday. Heading into Friday with a 4-under score, DeChambeau now sits in the lead at 16-under.

Believe it or not though, his lead doesn't have quite the padding you would expect.

After a similarly impressive 9-under 63 today, Patrick Cantlay is just one shot behind DeChambeau at 15-under. Sung-jae Im and Sergio Garcia both sit in a tie for third at 12-under after 7-under and 5-under rounds respectively.
