It was wonderful play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times.
"It's boyhood dream stuff, it's something I'm incredibly proud of", Rose said.
They will try again on Monday but with a similarly dire forecast and a saturated course that simply can not take any more punishment, there is every chance the event will be reduced to 54 holes.
Despite finishing second, Rose ascended to No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings, becoming the 22nd player to hold the position since it was introduced in 1986 and the fourth player from England to claim that perch, joining Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. Tiger Woods is tied for 11th, 5 strokes back.
Matsuyama began the day four shots behind third-round leader Rose but got off to a birdie-par-bogey start, and was slowed down by two more bogeys on the back nine.
One thing that has made him so successful in the BMW Championship has been his masterful display of putting on the greens.

"Truthfully I was really fixated on making the Tour Championship, and I kind of knew if we didn't play today, I was in it", he said Monday afternoon in the media center, sitting next to both the BMW Championship trophy and the FedExCup. Only the top 30 advance to the Tour Championship, marking the first time Spieth has missed the event since turning pro. He needed just a top 30 finish at the BMW Championship to qualify for the event, and he would need an absolute meltdown to finish outside that range at this point.
That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this year, which includes the Ryder Cup.
Still to be determined is the penalty. Spieth also must qualify for the season finale to play the minimum 25 events this season or face a fine.
"I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year, but it's kind of tough", Spieth said.
