The plan is for groups of three to begin play at 7:30 am EST off two tees at a time.

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

That put him in violation of a new PGA Tour rule created to route big-name players to smaller events.

Webb Simpson, Jason Day, Open Championship victor Francesco Molinari, Phil Mickelson, Masters champion Patrick Reed, Patrick Cantlay, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele, Tommy Fleetwood, and Tiger Woods.

There are no guarantees that the waterlogged course will be playable, meaning the event may be reduced to 54 holes, which Rose would win with a 17-under-par total of 193.

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

The fourth and final U.S. Ryder Cup pick for captain Jim Furyk, scheduled for Monday morning, will not be made until after the BMW Championship concludes.

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. It'd be a huge blow to Spieth, who has never missed the season finale since he first joined the Tour in 2013, but it'd also leave him on the wrong side of a new rule that requires a player to make 25 starts if he doesn't add a new event to his schedule. Players are required to play in 25 events in a season or risk a fine; Spieth played in 24 events and was clearly banking on making East Lake his 25th. Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth was 2-over for Monday's final round through 13 holes.

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