LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Zach Johnson has won the BMW Championship with a 6-under 65, and now has a chance to win something bigger.

Johnson made two big birdie putts over the closing holes at soggy Conway Farms on Monday to dole out more final-round disappointment for Jim Furyk. Furyk remains winless in three years and now has failed to win the last six times he has at least a share of the lead going into the final round.

The win puts Johnson at No. 4 in the FedEx Cup going into the finale next week at East Lake. That means all he has to do is win the Tour Championship to collect the $10 million bonus.

Nick Watney shot 64 and played his way into the Tour Championship.
