He just had a short putt for a third-straight birdie to get to -16 and within one shot of the lead, but he pulled it a little bit left.

Still to be determined was whether another shot is hit - or enough of them.

More than three inches of rain since late Thursday night drenched the layout and organisers decided yesterday afternoon to delay the final round until 7am today (1100 GMT) with threesomes starting off the front and back nines.

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m. He'd like another crack at Rose. If he ends up winning, Furyk could be persuaded to take him as the hottest American golfer for the Ryder Cup team.

United States of America captain Furyk, who earlier this week named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau as three of his four picks, is scheduled to complete his line-up on Monday.

Woods brought out of mothballs the old Scotty Cameron putter that he wielded in 13 of his 14 major championship victories, and it was just like old times as he putted with the assurance of yesteryear.

That's crucial for at least one high-profile player.

For Spieth, it's more than just missing the Tour Championship for the first time. Finau played well in the first two playoff events, finishing second at the Northern Trust Tournament and tying for fourth last week in the Dell Technologies event in Boston.

"Nor would we start a round on Monday thinking we could not get half the field finished", he said.

"We'll see what Mother Nature gives us", White said.

CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland (AP) - Matthew Fitzpatrick made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to become the first back-to-back European Masters victor since Seve Ballesteros 40 years ago.

Former world number one Tiger Woods also has an outside chance of ending his five-year winless run on the tour, after he carded a bogey-free 66 which lifted him to 12 under par and in a tie for 11th, alongside fellow countryman Gary Woodland, Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson.
