BMW Championship. 4th Round Play Suspended. September 16 2013

Fourth round play at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Course has been suspendedJim Furyk and his playing competitor Steve Stricker were among the 11 twosomes that had not yet started their final rounds. See you on Monday Jim Furyk / Getty Images Jim spent Saturday night sleeping nervously on his one-stroke 54-hole lead at the BMW Championship, and he will have to do the same thing again Sunday night, as he never even got started on Sunday. Non stop rain had engulfed Conway Farms Golf Course on Sunday, which resulted in their being two lengthy delays to play. This ultimately forced a halt to the tournament with a suspension of play for the day. and a return to the golf course Monday morning for the conclusion of the BMW Championship. Jim admitted he was anxious to get out there and play, if the weather permitted; "Obviously I'm anxious to get out there and play, as is everyone else. But the good news is no one wants to go out and play in this, and slop it around in bad weather on a golf course where we're playing the ball down and it's probably a little too wet out there. At this point after sitting around all day, it's probably a positive because it was looking like if I did get out on the golf course, it would have only been for a hole or two, and it's tough to get real excited about that. Hopefully the course will dry up nicely, it's going to be a different golf course tomorrow. It was real firm and fast all week. I expect that won't be the case tomorrow with all the rain we got today." Slugger White, the PGA TOUR's Vice President for Rules and Operations said; "We've got maybe some scattered lake showers in the morning, but for the most part, we feel pretty good that we might see some sunshine tomorrow, it's going to be better as the day goes on. Mother Nature just won't give us a break here as far as shutting this faucet off," The final round is set to resume at 9 a.m. ET Monday morning, with Jim and Steve, his closest pursuer, scheduled to tee off in the last group of the day at approximately 10:40 a.m. ET. The forecast is favorable, so there should be no further delays. Steve was thankful that he did not have to go out in the wet conditions; "I think we got the better end of the deal by not even playing in it. It looked like it was pretty tough conditions for everybody, and cold weather and rain. I didn't have to really go out and get started in it and come back in, all that stuff. So that was good, I guess, in that respect." Third placed Brandt Snedeker was disappointed; " It was disappointing because you want to get out there and it's the Playoffs and you've got one more tournament to go. You want to get out there and finish it on time. But I'll be excited to play tomorrow." Zach Johnson in fourth place said he will need to adjust to the course conditions; "I'm going to have to get a feel for the course early on and see exactly what kind of a plan I can have. There's only so much you can do, maybe a little bit more aggressive, but yet you've still got to pay attention to how the golf course is playing. This course can bite you if you get too aggressive. It's just one of those things you've got to roll with it and hopefully get the speed of the greens down early." It will be interesting to see who will make it into the top thirty at  the end of the day.
