Golf is a much better product when the top guns are playing well. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are easily golf's biggest studs and they have put on quality performances during several segments of the 2012 campaign.

The BMW Championship has been no different as both McIlroy and Woods are tied at 12-under, one shot behind Vijay Singh.

Highlights

Vijay Singh talks about his struggles during the weekends of recent events and his confidence going forward in this tournament. 

Rory McIlroy talks about his position going into the weekend and answers if he's getting tired. 

Analysis

Vijay Singh has been tremendous through two rounds of the BMW Championship. He is hitting 82.1 percent of his fairways and has only recorded two bogeys compared to 13 birdies, according to ESPN's statistics.

He has put himself into great position heading into the final two days of the tournament.

Woods, on the other hand, hasn't had a problem with the first two days of golf tournaments this year. It's all about the weekend—something we aren't used to pinpointing about Woods' overall golf game.

The old Tiger Woods was fantastic during the weekend. The Tiger Woods we are witnessing after his comeback has been nothing of the sort. 

Will Tiger fade away during the weekend?

Back to the main point—Tiger and Rory. Golf has always been a fascinating sport full of strategy, confidence and demeanor. But there are some people who couldn't care less about watching what they consider a "boring sport" on television. 

Golf is special when the top guns are playing well, which is why the latter part of the golf year has been fantastic theater. Both McIlroy and Woods are playing extraordinarily well of late. ESPN's Numbers Never Lie points out just how great the two have been playing. 

Now if only both could be paired and playing at the top of their games come Sunday during the final round: Wouldn't that be great? It may just happen.
