Rain-hit BMW Championship eyes Tuesday finish if needed

Rain-hit BMW Championship eyes Tuesday finish if needed

Keegan Bradley hits his bunker shot on the third hole on his way to winning the BMW Championship on Monday.

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.

Despite coming second, Rose moved up to claim the world number one spot. With Tiger Woods making a charge, there was plenty of focus on him, and that gave one fan standing behind him a moment of camera time.

Rose quickly erased a two-shot deficit against Schauffele with four straight birdies on Sunday (NZ time) on an Aronimink course so soft from rain that tee times were pushed back three hours.

Unlike most tournaments on the PGA Tour, there is a smaller field to split the $9 million prize pool with as the FedEx Cup playoffs have narrowed down the players eligible to compete over the past two weeks. Otherwise, all signs point to Finau, who was six shots out of the lead.

Rose could have won in regulation, but his 16-foot par putt on the final hole lipped out to force the playoff.




Against tough competition from top to bottom, and with a trip to the FedEx Cup finale on the line, Keegan Bradley didn't just contend - he defeated the very best the world has to offer, literally.

Still, Rose will overtake Dustin Johnson to become the world's top-ranked golfer for the first time, marking the culmination of 18 months of remarkably consistent play by the Englishman. It's a great win to come back after six years.

Spieth, who entered the BMW at 27th in FedEx Cup points, finished the event at minus-3 and slipped the 31st in the points standings. I'm not sure. I talked to the tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it and it becomes a situation then.

"I was just so happy to see them run out". He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times. Because he didn't add to his schedule a tournament he had not played in the last four years, he is in violation of the PGA Tour's scheduling policy.

"In order to win out here you've got to be consistent and on a golf course like this, even par is not going to do a whole lot, " Woods said. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one (new event) every year.
