Adam Hadwin’s last chance to get into the season-ending Tour Championship may never happen thanks to Mother Nature.
The last round of the BMW Championship, the third event of the FedEx Cup playoffs, on Sunday at Amorink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., was called due to a steady rain on an saturated golf course.
The plan is to finish up on Monday when early rain is expected to soak the golf course even more, followed by scattered showers.
Let me guess…. the next message will say. Final round will not be before 3.00pm because we have just seen Noah’s Ark heading down the 9th fairway. Next update at 1.30 and repeat until it’s dark.. ???????????? pic.twitter.com/ow4OPqerNn

With grounds crews needing at least a couple of hours to prepare the golf course, the likelihood of at least half of the field finishing their rounds on Monday in order to complete the tournament on Tuesday is becoming less likely, although officials are hoping for a window of opportunity in the morning and into the early afternoon.
If half the field doesn’t complete the fourth round on Monday, the tournament will become a 54-hole event for final results.
After firing a bogey-free, seven-under 63 on Saturday, Hadwin is tied for 26th at the BMW and, needing to get into the top 30 for the season-ending Tour Championship, is 44th in projected FedEx Cup standings in which Jordan Spieth is on the outside looking in from 31st spot.
