Bradley beats Rose in playoff to win BMW title

Bradley beats Rose in playoff to win BMW title

A fifth-place finish in Philadelphia lifted McIlroy up seven places to 17th, with Woods a further three places back in 20th after ending in a share of sixth.

On a course where he once won the AT&T National, Rose shot a 3-under 67 on Monday to get into a playoff with Keegan Bradley. Rose ascended to the No. 1 ranking in the Official World Golf Rankings and became just the 22nd golfer in history to do so. He still was set for to be at the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

"To make the Ryder Cup team and get back to East Lake, that was a pretty big task at the beginning of the year and to be able to accomplish that is something I'm very proud of, " Woods said.

Watching Simpson hole puts from across TPC Sawgrass at this year's THE PLAYERS Championship strengthened Bradley's belief in his new putting method.

Monday's victory marks the end of a six-year slump for Bradley, the 2011 PGA champion, who dipped as low as 122nd in the world in 2016. War of attrition. What you do in the offseason is what allows you to maintain it through the year, especially on the backside of the year, and I really didn't train for all this because I didn't know how much I was going to be playing.

Casey was still in line to play the Tour Championship when his participation at the BMW was halted, sitting in a projected 26th place in the FedEx Cup standings as 30 progress. "It made me feel calm, which is rare". While that was certainly possible - he missed three birdie putts inside of 15 feet, and made two bogeys after finding bunkers - it was a lot to ask on a miserable day.

It was the sixth time in Woods' career that he shot 263 or lower over four rounds, and the first time he did not win that tournament.

For Spieth, it's more than just missing the Tour Championship for the first time.

After a mid-round sandwich and yet another birdie at No. 13, Woods had pulled within one shot of the lead, but he failed to finish his rally.

"I did have some good plays but I struggled with my putts".

"I thought I needed to shoot something around 62 today to have a chance", Woods said.

As Bradley thrust his arms into the air, his family joined him in celebration on the green.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this season. Spieth started 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th. Thirty players, led by two-time playoff victor Bryson DeChambeau, will head to East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga. next week with the aim of capturing the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize.
