Justin Rose on brink as BMW field faces race to finish

Bmw Championship Faces Monday Finish Hopefully

Bmw Championship Faces Monday Finish Hopefully

Tiger Woods, meanwhile was five shots behind after a 66 in the third round that didn't allow him to make up any ground on the lead. "As of right now, the golf course is unplayable".

Per Tour regulations, at least half of the 69-man field needs to finish the final round by Monday night to go into a Tuesday finish; otherwise, the 54-hole scores stand. The greens are fine, the bunkers are going to be fine.

"We've got teeing grounds that are very marginal, and we've got fairways that are very marginal".

That break in the weather never happened Sunday.

"We had a golf course we couldn't play", said Slugger White, the tour's vice-president of competition.

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m.

They postponed the final round until Monday, but with more rain forecast overnight there is no guarantee they will be able to complete the penultimate FedExCup playoff event.


If the event is shortened, Rose would be the victor and full World Ranking points, FedEx points and prize money would be allotted to the field.

He and Bradley finished on 20 under par after the delayed final round. This is significant because it's the first time Spieth has missed the Tour Championship as a professional, but it's also significant because Spieth will end the season with only 24 tournaments played.

Emiliano Grillo, Andrew Putnam, Ryan Armour and Chez Reavie hold down the 31st through 35th positions.

The pick was to be announced a short time after the BMW Championship ends, whenever it ends.

It left Rose needing a par to claim victory.

With the chances of Monday play in doubt, the event could yet be reduced to 54 holes with standing as of Saturday evening being confirmed and Justin Rose securing his second BMW Championship title.
