Thanks to an excellent third round in 64 shots (-6), Francesco Molinari climbed from 20th to seventh place with 197 (70 63 64, -13) proposing his candidacy for the title of the BMW Championship, third of the four tests of the PlayOffs , which will have to designate the thirty players admitted to the Tour Championship (20-23 September), the final tournament where the FedEx Cup ten million dollars will be awarded to the winner of a special points classification and which will also conclude the PGA Tour season.
OVERTAKING – On the route of the Arinkink GC (par 70), in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, Justin Rose (193 – 66 63 64, -17) with a sprint start (six birdies in nine holes for 64, -6) has surpassed Xander Schauffele (194, -16), reached second place by Rory McIlroy. Molinari has one more shot Tiger Woods, 11th with 198 (-12), who made a round without bogey (66, -4 with four birdies). Late Jason Day, 15th with 199 (-11), Jon Rahm, 21st with 200 (-10), Bryson DeChambeau, 26th with 201 (-9), who will remain the FedEx Cup leader with any placement, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, world number one, both in 33rd place with 202 (-8), and Jordan Spieth, 39th with 204 (-6), that if it does not go up in rankings is likely to leave the final race for the first time in career.
COMEBACK – Francesco Molinari, after the slow start with the 49th place, has reassembled with a 63 (-7, seven birdies) in the second round and has continued the climb with six birdies without bogey. With this classification, the unassailable DeChambeau would remain at the top of FedEx, followed by Rose, Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Finau. Molinari would remain at 14th and Woods would rise to 24th. Before the Tour Championship the points will be reset: the ranking order will be maintained, with the first one receiving 2,000 points and going down 1,800, 1,520, 1,296 and 1,280 up to 115 of the 30th. The prize money is 9 million dollars, the winner will be 1.62 million.
