Final round of BMW pushed until Monday
Jim Furyk will have to wait one more day to try to end three years without a PGA Tour victory.
The final round of the BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Ill., was suspended Sunday because of steady rain that left too much water on Conway Farms. Furyk, who has a one-shot lead over Steve Stricker, was still about two hours away from even teeing off.
Rory McIlroy found one small consolation to the end of his PGA Tour season – he was one of six players who finished. McIlroy had his second straight 68. It was the first time he had back-to-back rounds in the 60s in the same tournament this year on the PGA Tour.
Furyk was at 13-under 200 and in the final group with Stricker. Brandt Snedeker was two shots behind at 202, followed by Zach Johnson at 203 and Tiger Woods at 204.
Players will return to Conway Farms this morning for the conclusion.
Norway’s Suzann Pettersen beat teen star Lydia Ko of New Zealand by two shots to win the Evian Championship in Evian-les-Bains, France, and clinch the second major title of her career.
It was her first major win since the 2007 LPGA Championship.
Pettersen shot a 3-under 68 to finish with a 10-under total of 203 after the tournament was reduced to three rounds when Thursday’s play was rained out. The 16-year-old Ko finished with a 70. American Lexi Thompson shot a 68 to finish four shots back in third place.<h3>Web.com Tour
