Keegan Bradley snaps 6-year drought, wins BMW Championship playoff

Keegan Bradley snaps 6-year drought, wins BMW Championship playoff

With the chances of Monday play in doubt, the event could yet be reduced to 54 holes with standing as of Saturday evening being confirmed and Justin Rose securing his second BMW Championship title.

Keegan's father, Mark Bradley, has been with Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis for years.

Justin Rose became world number one on Monday when he finished second at the BMW Championship where he lost a playoff with American Keegan Bradley in suburban Philadelphia. He's now ranked 66in the world. Rose chose to putt his ball and left himself a knee-knocking five-footer, which he missed, allowing Bradley to tap in for the victory.

But his achievement was then slightly overshadowed following a disappointing additional hole at the Aronimink Golf Club which saw him edged out by victor Keegan Bradley.

Woods caused some more noise - he's been doing that a lot in recent months before the largest galleries at every course - and got within one shot of the lead when he birdied the par-5 ninth to go out in 31. He tossed into the air his young son, Logan, who hadn't even been born in 2012, the last time Bradley won on the tour. Only the top 30 advance to the Tour Championship, marking the first time Spieth has missed the event since turning pro. Bradley hasn't made the Masters since his exemption for winning the PGA ran out, but he'll be back at Augusta next April.

"We are trying to play today and if we do play and happen to get finished so be it but the weather doesn't look promising", White said.

Jim Furyk's final Ryder Cup captain's pick was set to be made Monday, but the delayed finish of the BMW pushed the announcement to Tuesday. "Was riding some momentum (after the Dell Technologies Championship) but all in all, just game kind of got a little off".

PGA Tour officials had to postpone the final round at Aronimink because of persistent rain, which is forecast to continue. "It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams to being outside the top 100 in the world".

The event is the third of four tournaments in the PGA Tour's end-of-year FedEx Cup Playoffs and featured a field of 69 players from the top of the playoff standings.

"It was about two years ago, maybe". That projects him to move up 22 spots into the 30th position in the FedEx Cup, which would bump out Jordan Spieth.
