Jordan Spieth facing fine for breach of PGA Tour regulations

Jordan Spieth facing fine for breach of PGA Tour regulations

Rose, who had a 67 in the final round, and Bradley, who fired a scintillating 64 on Monday, went back to the 18th tee for a sudden-death playoff after both bogeyed the closing hole to finish at 20 under 260 after 72 holes.

Frustration: Justin Rose tosses his club after missing a putt for par on the 18th hole.

Rose held a one stroke advantage going into the final hole but a bogey meant it went down to a playoff.

Justin Rose admits his "boyhood dream" of becoming world No 1 was tainted by his agonising play-off defeat at the BMW Championship.

Spieth would be the first player to violate the rule in its two years of existence.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship victor, captured his fourth PGA Tour title and won for the first time since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2012.

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, who trailed then-leader Rose by one shot after round three, finished fifth following a 68.

Five-time BMW championship victor Tiger Woods mounted another vintage charge, but a late back-nine stumble has been the story of his comeback season from spinal fusion surgery. I talked to the Tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it.

Del Potro confident of Djokovic breaking Federer's 20 Grand Slam record
The sixth seed survived three break points in the following game, an epic that lasted more than 20 minutes, in a pivotal moment. In a tight opening set, there was only a single break point and Djokovic made it count to go up 5-3 before serving it out.

Gareth Southgate expects swift return to club action for Dele Alli
Southgate said he was impressed by the way Spain had replaced the heroes of their 2010 World Cup-winning side with creative players like Isco, Sergio Busquets and Thiago Alcantara.

NASA sees Hurricane Florence open an evil-looking eye
NASA's Aqua satellite caught Hurricane Florence developing an eye Sunday as the storm ramped up its intensity. Saturday, Florence had maximum sustained winds of 70 mp and was located about 790 miles southeast of Bermuda.

Spieth began the year ranked second in the world but has dropped to 10th after failing to win and posting just five top-10 finishes.

"That's an awesome achievement, something I'm extraordinarily proud of", he said. This year he did not add a new event, and the Ryder Cup - which counts - will give him just 24.

"No 2 is an incredible spot to be in, and it's a week where there are many scenarios in play", he said.

American 14-time major victor Tiger Woods closed with a 65, moving up to a share of sixth, one shot behind McIlroy.

The PGA Tour's regulations stipulate a major penalty, which could be a fine or a suspension, although commissioner Jay Monahan has discretion, and it's unclear if any sanctions would be announced.

"It's not the way I have normally started the playoffs but I'm still in a good position and, mathematically, everyone at the Tour Championships can win the FedExCup", Day said.

"I assume it will either be a fine or I m adding some events in the fall", Spieth said.
