Bradley holds off Rose to win BMW Championship

Bradley holds off Rose to win BMW Championship

Frustration: Justin Rose tosses his club after missing a putt for par on the 18th hole. But a No. 1 ranking will do for Rose, who joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald as the only Englishmen to reach the top spot.

American 14-time major victor Tiger Woods closed with a 65, moving up to a share of sixth, one shot behind McIlroy. As the ninth-ranked golfer in the world, he is one of the top players on tour week to week when healthy, so he was a favorite to be the overall playoff champ if he had played in all the events.

"A lot has happened to me over these six years", Bradley said.

It was incredible there was any play possible at all in Philadelphia, with an inch of rain overnight saturating the course, but officials deemed that play was possible and the first groups took to the course just after 7.30am local time.

American Keegan Bradley snapped a six-year US PGA winless skid on Monday, parring the first playoff hole to defeat new world number one Justin Rose for the BMW Championship crown.

"It was the weirdest couple of days because I knew in the back of my mind if we didn't play, I was in Atlanta".

Bradley trailed by three shots going into the final round and atoned for a disappointing Sunday in New Jersey, where he had a chance to win the Northern Trust two weeks ago before shooting 78 in Round 4.

"I assume it will either be a fine or I'm adding some [events] in the fall". I now have another string to the bow; if you're trying to sum up my career in three sentences - world No 1 would be right up there with the other achievements.

Despite Rose shooting 67 on Monday, Bradley came through with the 64 to force the playoff.

But bogeys on the 10th and 14th holes derailed his hopes and he ran out of holes, playing the back nine in 34. And this was the kind of day when more than one mistake was going to be costly.

Spieth is at 23 and needs to get to East Lake (the Ryder Cup counts as a start) to reach the magic number.

For the sixth time in his career, Woods shot 263 or better. "And I don't think that would have been good enough". That projects him to move up 22 spots into the 30th position in the FedEx Cup, which would bump out Jordan Spieth.

Turns out, a 62 would have put him in the playoff.

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. That was about the time he was just starting to cope with back pain.

"I feel like I'm definitely a lot more rested and ready to go than most guys here, I'm sure", Fowler said.

Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under.
