Justin Rose takes lead ahead of Schauffele and McIlroy

September 08, 2018

Justin Rose fired a 6-under 64 on Saturday to take the lead heading into the final round of the BMW Championship. He is trailed one shot behind by Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.

A win this weekend could propel Rose into the World No.1 position for the first time.

Jordan Spieth is currently projected to drop out of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup and would miss the Tour Championship as a consequence as well as getting penalized by the PGA Tour because of his schedule.

He has one more day to change things, provided the final round takes place.

''It was definitely in the back of your mind,'' said Rose. ''You could start to feel the weather coming in and getting darker. Kind of had the feel there's some big weather coming. I said to my caddie, 'How about tomorrow?' Just got to get through today.''

Players' starting times were brought forward to 7am on Sunday and there is a small window of opportunity in the forecast on Monday morning to finish but there is a chance the tournament will be reduced to 54 holes which has only happened once in the 11 years of the FedEx playoffs.
