Keegan Bradley captures BMW Championship, more with playoff victory

Keegan Bradley captures BMW Championship, more with playoff victory

Justin Rose didn't win the 2018 BMW Championship - in fact, he lost in heartbreaking fashion during a sudden death playoff - but he did achieve something maybe even bigger on Monday at Aronimink.

But despite coming second, Rose has become the new World No 1, and is now just the 22 player to make the top spot since the rankings began back in 1986.

Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, thrust his arms toward the gray sky and drizzle in celebration and waved his family onto the 18th hole.

"But at the end of the season, to say that I made it to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods added. The putt lipped out of the cup to force him into the playoff with Bradley.

"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".

Justin Rose has won PGA Tour on nine occasions.

However, a steady round proved not enough around a soaked Aronimink, with McIlroy's two-under 68 bettered by Rose, who shot a three-under 67, and eventual victor Bradley, whose six-under 64 took him into a play-off with the Englishman.

It was fantastic play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times.

Rose trails Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two playoff events, in the FedEx Cup standings. He found a bunker on the par-3 14th for another bogey.

With the runnerup finish, Rose ascended to World No. 1.

What will it take for you to consider Tiger Woods "back"?

Still, he's happy to even have just a slight chance. However, he's back at the BMW Championship, and he's already back in the hunt for a big-time victory.

"I've played a few tournaments (this year) where I was close at the end", Woods said, whose missed opportunities to win this year include the Arnold Palmer Invitational, British Open and PGA Championship.

By virtue of his return to East Lake - his first trip since 2013 - Bradley will once again reap the benefits of being a top-30 player on Tour.

That kind of scheduling certainty is why he was so focused on qualifying for the Tour Championship, and why he really gave some thought to the benefits of what could have been a rain-shortened event. The requirement can be waived if a player competes in 25 events in either the previous or current season.

"When you talk about your career, those are the three highlights (winning a Major, playing in the Ryder Cup and being World No.1)".

Another is Tony Finau, who celebrated his share of eighth place by being named as Jim Furyk's final pick for the United States Ryder Cup team.
