Vijay Singh is the one-shot leader at the BMW Championship as play opens on Saturday, but it won't last.

Both Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are charging hard. The two of them seem set to embark on a stretch that will see them battle for tournament supremacy every time out.

At the Deutsche Bank Championship, Woods and McIlroy were the two most dominant forces on the course, and by day's end on Saturday, things will have followed suit in Carmel, Ind.

Singh is in search of his first win on the PGA Tour this year. The 49-year-old has had great starts recently, but he's fallen off in the final two rounds.

This was the case at both the PGA Championship and the Barclays. At the PGA Championship, Singh began play with a 71 and a 69 in the first two rounds. He faded in Rounds 3 and 4 with a 74 and 77.

At the Barclays, he jumped out with a sparkling 68 and 67 in the first two days, but on the last two, he again fell off. He posted a 76 and 75 to relegate himself to a 46th-place finish.

With Tiger and Rory breathing down his neck, Singh won't be able to hold his lead. He may not collapse with a mid-70s round on Saturday, but anything higher than a 69 will be too high to hold off the charge.

This will quickly become a two-golfer race on Saturday and through Sunday.
