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. I'm just letting it rip on the greens.

The PGA Tour has an off week coming up prior to the Tour Championship. "But then it was a weird day as they put a lot of the tees forward and while the course was very wet from all the rain we had last night, if you didn't shoot 65 you were losing ground".

"We will do everything we can to play tomorrow and we will see what Mother Nature gives us (Monday) morning", White said. That included Tiger Woods, who missed only two greens in regulation, kept a clean card, shot 66 and let a good round get away. "The golf course is soft".

Which increases the likelihood that the BMW is shortened to 54 holes.

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. He also would be the No. 2 seed behind Bryson DeChambeau among the top 30 who advance to the Tour Championship in two weeks, giving him a clear shot at the $10 million prize.

Rose can go to No. 1 in the world for the first time in his career with a victory, making him the 22nd player to reach the top since the ranking began in 1986.

Finau stands in a tie for 15th place in the BMW tournament and is scheduled to tee off at 6:30 a.m. local time on Monday.

Rose leads Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele, who is trying to claim a captain's pick in the US Ryder Cup team. He still was set for to be at the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013. The Tour Championship was expected to be Spieth's 25 event, but now he'd fall short of reaching that mark.

"We're just going to do the best we can", White said, "and hopefully we can play".
