  • Woods feels he could need a final-round 61 to have a chance

Bradley made three more birdies on the back nine to head to the 18th tee tied for the lead with Rose.

Getty Keegan Bradley plays a shot from the bunker on the third hole during the weather-delayed final round of the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club on September 10, 2018 in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

His victory capped a long week that stretched to Monday after persistent rain left the course unplayable for the scheduled final round on Sunday. Spieth also must qualify for the season finale to play the minimum 25 events this season or face a fine. The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings earn exemptions to the Masters, U.S. Open and Then Open - although Woods has lifetime entry to the Masters and an exemption through age 60 at The Open.

"All those top-10 finishes, the play in big championships and the majors, and then his current form, a second, a fourth and an eighth in the playoffs".

The Queenslander posted third-place results in the opening two events of the playoffs but couldn't sustain his momentum at the BMW Championship. But [I'm] delighted to have got to the top.' Rose looked on course for the tenth PGA Tour title of his career after Bradley bogeyed the 18th. Woods wound up with a 65 and finished three shots back.

The two-time FedEx Cup victor secured his spot in the Tour Championship with a top-10 performance at Aronimink. Rose moved No. 1 in the world ahead of Dustin Johnson and became the 22nd player to reach the top spot since the ranking began in 1986. In his final day, the legendary golfer finished 5-under par through 18 holes.

Spieth did not add a new event, and he has only played in 23 tournaments this season.

He will have an unexpected week off before joining the American team for the September 28-30 Ryder Cup in Paris. I don't normally love looking at leaderboards, but I watched them all day. "I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while.

It was really kind of odd because I don't normally look at leaderboards, but I looked all day and I felt so solid", Bradley said.

Despite Rose shooting 67 on Monday, Bradley came through with the 64 to force the playoff. "This is one of our tougher tests but it just wasn't playing that way this year, it was just soft and it was hot early in the week, the ball was flying, guys were hitting driver-wedge every hole".
