In the final round of the 2013 BMW Championship, Billy Horschel sinks a 47-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to cap his round of 66. He'll play in his first TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola next week.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Jim Furyk is 0-for-his-last-5 when leading after 54 holes.
But through his first six holes here in the final round of the BMW Championship, he has managed to keep a two-stroke cushion between himself and Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker.
Nick Watney, meanwhile, is two more strokes back, while five others, including Tiger Woods, are five shots back.
Furyk has done it by being mistake-free with five pars and one birdie after hitting three fairways and five of his first six greens -- the one he missed was on the par-4 third, where he got up-and-down from a greenside bunker.
His lone birdie came on the next hole when he sank a 17-footer.
Brandt Snedeker, meanwhile, has gone the other direction after starting the day just two behind Furyk. The reigning FedExCup champ bogeyed two of his first four holes and is now five off the pace.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Harris English is projected to fall outside the top 30 in FedExCup points after finishing with a final-round 1-over 72 Monday at the BMW Championship.
English entered the week ranked 28th in points but is now projected at 31. That opens the door for somebody to bust the bubble and move inside the top 30.
Right now, that somebody would be Matt Jones, who is about to make the turn. Jones started 51st but is projected to 29th.
English was 2 under through 7 holes during Sunday's rainy conditions, but hit a poor tee shot at the par-5 eighth hole just before play was halted. He came back on Monday and ended up taking double bogey on the hole. He wasn't able to regain any momentum the rest of the day.
"I knew I had to play well, and I just hit a lot of loose shots this week, made a lot of big numbers, and you can't do that out here," English said.
English's situation is actually good news for Dustin Johnson, who is projected to stay inside the top 30. When he finished his round Sunday, Johnson was projected outside the top 30 after starting the week at No. 23.
In terms of the top five who will control their own destiny at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, Graham DeLaet is now projected to fall out of the top five.
DeLaet started at No. 5 but is projected to No. 7 after finishing up a 4-under 67 that leaves him at 2 under for the tournament.
The Canadian's fate likely rests in how Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker and Zach Johnson finish Monday. Any one of them will move into the top 5 with a win.

Chris Stroud's FedExCup Playoffs are over, but he went out on a high note on Monday. n the final round of the 2013 BMW Championship, Chris Stroud holes a 90-yard eagle approach shot on the par-5 18th hole.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Tiger Woods' final round is under way at the BMW Championship (click here to follow live), where he's looking for his sixth win of the season and is in position to regain the top spot in the FedExCup standings.
Woods is just four strokes off the lead of Jim Furyk after a third-round 66 and while he has never won a major coming from behind, the same isn't true in a regular PGA TOUR event.
Twice last year Woods won when trailing after 54 holes -- at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, where he was four back of Spencer Levin, and at the AT&T National, where he was one behind Brendon de Jonge.
How will he fare in the final round? Discuss below.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- When Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker tee off in the final pairing of Monday's final round at the BMW Championship, it will be the first time in more than five years they've been paired at a PGA TOUR event.
Not since the first three rounds of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in 2008 have Furyk and Stricker played in the same group. That year, they also played together in the first two rounds of the U.S. Open.
They were paired in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, an off-season event that's not part of the official PGA TOUR schedule, in 2010 and 2011.
Furyk will take a one-shot lead over Stricker heading into their round, which was pushed back a day due to heavy rains that suspended play Sunday before they could tee off. A total of 11 twosomes were unable to start their rounds before play was halted in the afternoon. The round resumed Monday morning at 9 a.m. ET, with no further weather issues expected.
Furyk is looking to break a three-year drought on TOUR; he hasn't won since the 2010 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola when he won the FedExCup. Stricker, who began playing a reduced schedule this year in order to spend more time with his family, last won in 2012 at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
Both players are currently projected to move inside the top five in FedExCup points, which would allow each one to win the FedExCup with a win next week at East Lake.
"I won't pay attention to that part so much as trying to win the tournament," Stricker said.
Furyk is taking the same approach.
"It would be nice, obviously, but that's kind of putting the cart before the horse," he said.
The twosome tee off at 10:40 a.m. ET (9:40 a.m. local).
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The final round of the BMW Championship resumed at 9 a.m. ET Monday under bright, sunny skies at Conway Farms.
The temperature was barely above 50 degrees when players began playing again but there was no threat of rain.
Jim Furyk currently leads by a stroke over Steve Stricker but neither teed off on Sunday. They will play in the final pairing today at 10:40 a.m.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The latest member of the 59 club has heard from the original member.
Jim Furyk said Sunday that Al Geiberger sent him a text message on Saturday night. Geiberger was the first PGA TOUR pro to shoot 59 in a single round at the 1977 Danny Thomas Memphis Classic and is known simply as Mr. 59.
Furyk became the sixth member of the exclusive club on Friday when he shot a 59 in the second round of the BMW Championship.
"Pretty cool," Furyk said about hearing from Geiberger. "He said he was the honorary chairman of the club, and he wanted to say congrats. So that was nice to hear from him.
"And I sent back the message it just felt weird to be called Mr. 59, that he was 'the' Mr. 59 and we all just get to borrow it once in a while."
Geiberger wasn't the only member of the 59 club to contact Furyk. Paul Goydos, who shot his 59 at the 2010 John Deere Classic, congratulated Furyk earlier this week.
Although not a member of the 59 club on the PGA TOUR, Russell Knox did shoot 59 on the Web.com Tour this year and also sent a message to Furyk.
