Rain delays and may halt BMW Championship

Paul Casey (Back) Withdraws from Soggy BMW Championship

Tony Finau should find out Monday if he'll be playing on U.S. Ryder Cup team

After rain wiped out Sunday's play in suburban Philadelphia, the final round was pushed back to Monday. The greens are fine.

With the chances of Monday play in doubt, the event could yet be reduced to 54 holes with standing as of Saturday evening being confirmed and Justin Rose securing his second BMW Championship title. 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.

The captain was scheduled to announce his final addition to the team at 9 a.m. ET Monday, but it's not yet known when that 12 man will be named.

Slugger White, the PGA Tour's vice-president of rules and competition, revealed the condition of the fairways and back nine were the "biggest concern".

If the forecast makes it unlikely to finish, the tour could cut the tournament short to 54 holes.

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.

His comeback has been nine long years, interrupted by four wrist surgeries and an assortment of strain injuries, in the making. But at some point you have to take a decision", Nadal told reporters. "I've played him many times on different occasions".

Final-round results will decide the 30 players who qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship in two weeks at Atlanta.

Finally, Bill Haas, who has played a part in three winning Presidents Cup teams, might have been a decent shout for a Ryder Cup spot not too long ago but the 36-year-old has missed 10 cuts in 22 starts in 2018, leaving Furyk with a hard choice between Schauffele and Finau on Monday.

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. He still was set for to be at the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

It all starts with the weather.

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.
