Rose waits through a day of rain at BMW Championship

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Two putts began taking on more significance with each rain delay until there was no golf at all Sunday at the BMW Championship.

Aronimink Golf Club already was saturated when a steady rain caused tiny streams and large puddles in the fairways, leaving the PGA Tour little choice but to wait until Monday to either play the final round or decide to cut short the third FedEx Cup playoff event to 54 holes.

Justin Rose was ahead by one shot, all because of one putt.

He was tied with Xander Schauffele on the 18th hole of the third round Saturday when Schauffele’s 8-foot par putt rimmed around the high side of the cup, giving him a bogey and Rose the lead.

The forecast was for light, scattered showers Monday morning, with thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m.
