Justin Rose leads rain-delayed BMW Championship

Justin Rose- Justin Rose eyes $10m pot as he closes in on No 1 spot at BMW Championship

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy admitted he felt "proud" of himself after his third-round performance at the BMW Championship, where he finished one shot behind leader Justin Rose after firing a superb round of 63, Sky Sports report.

Justin Rose hits his tee shot on the 18th hole during the third round of the BMW Championship golf tournament at Aronimink GC.

U.S. 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.

Keegan Bradley might be there, too, all because of one putt. For perspective, he has shot 198 or better through three rounds 16 times in his career and was never worse than second place.

"I hit the ball well enough to shoot a low score and I got off to a quick start", Woods said.

If at least half of the final round is completed Monday before more expected rain arrives then the remaining holes will be pushed to Tuesday. Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth was 2-over for Monday's final round through 13 holes.

"We just have to wait until in the morning to see exactly what we're going to have to try to do". "I got to take a run at it, whether it's tomorrow or Monday". "The golf course is soft".

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

PGA Tour policy states every feasible attempt must be made to complete 72 holes, but also that a final round can not begin on a Tuesday.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth.

Casey suffered a back problem on the eve of The Players Championship in May and was forced to pull out ahead of the first round at Sawgrass, although he returned to action a fortnight later in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, finishing in a tie for 20th.
