After sustained rain delayed Sunday’s round 4 and final round of the 2013 BMW Championship, bright and early Monday morning sees the third of four FedEx Cup Playoffs tournaments get a second shot at wrapping up. Jim Furyk starts the day as the leader for the second day in a row and Tiger Woods is making a charge despite a controversial two-stroke penalty taken on Friday. Free live online streaming instructions, the leaderboard and TV times for today’s PGA tournament BMW Championship coverage on Golf Channel and NBC can be found below.
Furyk had to figure lightning wouldn’t strike twice on Saturday, and it didn’t. Yet the leader at -13 still holds the lead by a stroke over Steve Stricker following a 69 yesterday, 10 strokes worse than the historic 59 he shot on Friday. Furyk has to be thrilled heading into the final round with the lead and his first championship in roughly three years within reach.
Tiger Woods had a nice run on Saturday by shooting a 66 to pull within four shots of the leader at -9. A solid day makes the two-stroke penalty Woods took on Friday for moving a ball and then failing to set it back in its original position that much tougher to swallow. Woods still doesn’t agree with the call and has been vocal about it, but what’s done is done.
There was excitement on Saturday as Hunter Mahan drilled a hole-in-one on the 17th hole and got the keys to a BMW i3 electric car as a reward for the feat. Mahan is still hanging around in the standings at -7 after shooting a 65 on Saturday, 6 shots back of the leader.
Steve Stricker shot a 64 on Saturday and thanks to a Furyk bogey on its final hole is only one shot back. Stricker will be paired with Furyk for the final day, while the second pairing includes Brandt Snedeker at -11 and Zach Johnson at -10. Woods will play with Charl Schwartzel in the next pairing.
