Marc Leishman allowed himself to dream of being among the best, even if there were times that that looked a long way off.His best golf looked a long way off when Leishman first came to Chicago as a PGA Tour rookie. He made eagle on the final hole of the second FedEx Cup playoff event to narrowly advance to the BMW Championship. The one threat came from Justin Rose, and Leishman responded with back-to-back birdies.Then, he added a birdie on the 18th hole for a 4-under 67 that broke the 72-hole scoring record at the BMW Championship, which previously belonged to Woods, the guy that left Leishman in awe. He also won the Arnold Palmer Invitational.That alone doesn't put him among the elite in golf, and Leishman would be the first to say that. Rickie Fowler saw it Sunday, when Leishman made only two bogeys. He made two birdies in three holes after the first bogey on the front nine, and followed his bogey on the back nine with three birdies over the closing five holes.
