While PGA Tour officials can talk a good game about there being a “window of opportunity” on Monday where they can squeeze in the final round of the BMW Championship postponed from Sunday, don’t expect locals to buy it.
With all due respect to Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and the rest of the golfers atop the leader board at the BMW Championship, Sunday’s final-round drama won’t be isolated to who wins the tournament title. Just ask Jordan Spieth.
There are still three weeks until the 2018 Masters, and as we saw last spring, fate can intervene in sadistic ways between now and Thursday’s ceremonial tee shots. Did that stop us from waxing poetic on the slew of narratives heading into Augusta National? Absolutely not.
It was an electric scene on moving day at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, with the threesome of Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele feeding off the crowd’s energy and vaulting into contention. Meanwhile, a few groups behind them, Rickie Fowler didn’t have much going his way, sitting at even par on his round through 12 holes.
