Justin Rose new world No 1 despite losing BMW Championship play-off

Justin Rose new world No 1 despite losing BMW Championship play-off”

But not getting a final round would obviously affect several players who are trying to finish among the top 30 in points and advance to the season-ending Tour Championship that begins September 20.

That's crucial for at least one high-profile player. If he wins, Rose will replace Dustin Johnson at the top of the world rankings.

"We'll see what Mother Nature gives us", White said.

Rory McIlroy currently sits on 16-under par at the event, now just one shot behind leader Justin Rose after the Northern Irishman produced another scintillating round of 63 on Saturday to go with his opening 62. Spieth has made almost $3 million this season.

Schauffele is hoping for another opportunity to impress Jim Furyk before the Ryder Cup deadline. 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.

He was left tied for 39th spot when Sunday's play at the BMW Championship was called off, and with further bad weather expected on Monday, the event could be reduced to 54 holes. Those who fail to meet the new requirement are subject to a "major fine" (in excess of $20,000) or suspension, though Spieth likely could argue to Tour officials that he wasn't afforded an opportunity to improve his standing in the final event if the last round is canceled.

If Spieth does miss out he would be one short of the minimum 25 starts members are required to play on the PGA Tour this year.

"We had a golf course we couldn't play", said Slugger White, the tour's vice-president of competition.

He is now projected to finish 31st in the FedExCup standings and miss out on the Tour Championship as only the Top 30 players advance to the season finale at Atlanta's East Lake.
