The PGA Tour dodged inclement weather through the first two legs of the 2013 FedExCup, but the rain on Sunday in Chicago was unrelenting and the BMW Championship was pushed to a Monday finish. There are supposed to be more scattered storms on Monday and the top of the leaderboard still has not teed off, leaving the field of 70 waiting to be chopped down to 30 for this week's final TOUR Championship in Atlanta.
Only six players (three groups) finished their round on a rain-soaked Sunday. The Tour tried to push it, but after several restarts, it became clear that the course was taking on too much water and there was no significant break coming in the late afternoon. Play was called with the last 11 tee times never even getting to the first tee so there's a huge chunk of golf still to be played on Monday.
With only a 70-man field, the PGA Tour did have some flexibility when it came to working the field through Conway Farms the first three days. There have been a few occasions this year where Monday restarts were pushed back to mid-morning or even early afternoon for better TV exposure, but the Tour is leaving nothing to chance this week and will restart everything at 9 a.m. ET. In addition to the 22 players who still have to start, there are still 42 players out on the course needing to finish anywhere from the 18th hole to the first hole. Many players -- such as Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald and Ryan Moore -- are currently projected outside the top 30 and left in limbo about whether they'll need to book a flight to Atlanta for the start of the 2013 finale at East Lake.
Those players out on the course already will all restart at 9 a.m. ET. Here are the tee times for the final 22 players and top of the 54-hole leaderboard who still have to tee off (All times ET):
