Rose leads by one as he seeks world's top ranking

Tiger Woods hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation during his third round at the BMW Championship, and finished the round bogey free. "A one-shot lead doesn't really mean much and it doesn't change my approach tomorrow as I just have to play better than the guys around me", Rose said.

Despite making a double-bogey at the eighth, the 29-year-old instantly replied with an eagle at the ninth, helping him charge up the leaderboard on Saturday.

American Xander Schauffele and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy shared second place, with Schauffele a strong candidate to be named the final Ryder Cup team selection on Monday by United States captain Jim Furyk.

"I'm going to have to shoot one of those 61s or 62s just to have a chance", Woods said.

Keegan Bradley is 30th and would be exempt for the first three major championships in 2019. If he doesn't qualify, Spieth would violate a recent policy requiring PGA Tour members to play a tournament they haven't been to in the last four years.

Spieth is at 23 and needs to get to East Lake (the Ryder Cup counts as a start) to reach the magic number. Rose, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Tony Finau would hold the next four spots and be assured of winning the FedEx Cup title and a $10 million bonus with a victory at the Tour Championship.

Scoring was the lowest it has been all week at 67.17.

U.S. are the current holders of the Ryder Cup after winning 17-11 at Hazeltine two years ago, although they are bidding to win on European soil for the first time since their success at The Belfry in 1993.

The eight USA players who qualified on Ryder Cup points are Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson.

For Woods, it was another lost opportunity, even though he remains in the mix.

Still to be determined was whether another shot is hit - or enough of them. If not, the final round could be scrapped and the 54-hole scores would stand.
