Rain-hit BMW final round postponed

Rain-hit BMW final round postponed

Even if Aronimink Golf Club can be ready for play, the round will not end.

With more rain and thunderstorms forecast for Monday, the possibility of the elite, 70-man event being shortened to 54 holes is growing and would mean leader Justin Rose would be crowned the victor.

The eight US players who qualified on Ryder Cup points are Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson.

United States of America captain Furyk, who earlier this week named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau as three of his four picks, is scheduled to complete his line-up on Monday.

The venerable Philadelphia course has been turned into a virtual pitch and putt by the best players in the world, the product of wider-than-normal fairways and a course softened by an abundance of rain at the BMW Championship.

His only bogey came at the par-three eighth, where he misjudged his tee shot and sent an eight-iron over the back into punishing rough.


Keegan Bradley made two tough pars for a 66 and narrowly edged past Spieth for the 30th spot. "I hope we play", McIlroy said.

"It was frustrating because I hit the ball well enough to shoot a low score, and I got off to a quick start, birdieing the first two", Woods said. Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth was 2-over for Monday's final round through 13 holes. You can be aggressive.

Play was delayed Saturday for more than three hours after 2½ inches of rain fell overnight.

Rose left the Aronimink course on Sunday night - where he won the AT&T National in 2010 - with his lips understandably tightly shut, but his words the previous evening, after his third-round 63, showed he realised what was on the line.

"We will do everything we can to play tomorrow but we'll just see what Mother Nature gives us", PGA competitions vice president Carlton "Slugger" White said. He has never missed the Tour Championship, and he likely would face some form of penalty for not having added a new tournament to his schedule without competing in at least 25 events.
