LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jim Furyk will have to wait one more day to try to end three years without a victory on the PGA Tour.

The final round of the BMW Championship was suspended Sunday because of rain that left too much water on Conway Farms. Furyk had a one-shot lead over Steve Stricker. He was about three hours from even teeing off when play was stopped for the first time by rain for 3½ hours. It resumed for an hour before more showers led to another stoppage in play.

Furyk was among 22 players who had yet to tee off. That included Tiger Woods, who was four shots behind.

Only six players completed their rounds. Rory McIlroy had a 68 and was able to get an early start on his four-week break.
