Rain-hit BMW Championship final round postponed to today

  • Tiger Woods stalled in the second round of the BMW Championship

Slugger White, the Tour's vice president of rules and competition, said that Aronimink's staff would need at least 2 ½ hours of uninterrupted work to properly prepare the course for play.

Justin Rose could become the world No 1 today without hitting a ball if rain once again blights the final round of the BMW Championship in Pennsylvania. After starting the day in a tie for 12th, Woods is tied for 11th, with the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari ahead of him. Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed (-12) are both five back with an outside shot to make some noise. For perspective, he has shot 198 or better through three rounds 16 times in his career and was never worse than second place.

Still to be determined was whether another shot is hit - or enough of them.

Persistent rain on Sunday gave PGA Tour officials no choice but to postpone the final round at Aronimink in suburban Philadelphia until Monday.

"I'm going to have to shoot one of those 61s or 62s just to have a chance", Woods said. Several publications have said that Finau should "absolutely" be the final pick for the Ryder Cup team, which will play the European team September 28-30 at Le Golf National in France because of his strong play this year, particularly lately.

Keegan Bradley is 30th and would be exempt for the first three major championships in 2019. "It was just one of those days you had to stay aggressive". "The golf course is soft".

"We can't push water around and we've gotten over three inches of rain since last night and today".

White said that according to the PGA Tour's regulations, every effort is made to play 72 holes.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth.

Two other events have finished beyond the weekend, including Australia's Jason Day and Swede Alex Noren in a Monday playoff at Torrey Pines and American Troy Merritt winning July's Barbasol Championship in Kentucky on a Monday.
