Highlights from Tiger Woods final-round 65 at the BMW Championship

Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two FedEx events at the Northern Trust, is assured of leaving the BMW Championship atop the standings heading to Atlanta.

The final round had been scheduled for Sunday but was postponed until Monday after persistent rain made the Aronimink course unplayable. But it helped him finish 20th in the FedEx Cup points, meaning a spot in the 30-player Tour Championship next week. "It was hard to get ready to play because I was like, 'Man, if they call it, I'm good.' But I was only three back". That projects him to move up 22 spots into the 30th position in the FedEx Cup, which would bump out Jordan Spieth.

As as result the field including leaderboard toppers Justin Rose, Rory McIlory, Xander Schauffele and even Tiger Woods have to begin the final round on Monday. But the 14-time major victor carded a 65 and ultimately settled for a share of sixth at 17-under.

So would Schauffele, who believes winning might be his only hope of persuading Jim Furyk to take him with the last captain's pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Finally giving into his nerves, he bogeyed the hole and fell out of the lead, only to stand by and watch Rose drop a shot on the final hole as well.

Missouri college to strip athletes of Nike branding over Kaepernick controversy
Nike signed Kaepernick to an endorsement deal in 2011 and has maintained that contract since then, ESPN reported . The action has irked President Trump, who weighed in on the Nike campaign in a series of tweets this week .

"Truthfully I was really fixated on making the Tour Championship, and I kind of knew if we didn't play today, I was in it", he said Monday afternoon in the media center, sitting next to both the BMW Championship trophy and the FedExCup.

If the event is shortened, Rose would be the victor and full World Ranking points, FedEx points and prize money would be allotted to the field. He also earned his first trip to the Tour Championship in five years.

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week, " said Spieth, who shot 73 on Monday at Aronimink Golf Club to tie for 54th. The requirement can be waived if a player competes in 25 events in either the previous or current season.
