Rain-hit BMW Championship eyes Tuesday finish if needed

Justin Rose climbed to second after his second-place finish at the BMW Championship on Monday.

The pair finished one shot ahead of Americans Xander Schauffele and Billy Horschel.

Justin Rose admits his "boyhood dream" of becoming world number one was tainted by his agonising play-off defeat at the BMW Championship.

Rose's second straight runner-up finish helped him overtake Dustin Johnson atop the world ranking. The tournament, being held in Newton Square, Pennsylvania, at the Aronimink Golf Club, was scheduled to end Sunday, but was delayed until Monday because of rain.

"To make the Ryder Cup team and get back to East Lake, that was a pretty big goal at the beginning of the year", Woods said. But he couldn't take advantage Monday, playing his first five holes in 3 over par and ending up with a 3-over 73 that had him depending on others. But guaranteeing a top 30 position in the final FedEx Cup points rankings, Bradley secures his spot in the field at the major championships in 2019, something the former college golfer at St. John's has struggled with ever since his exemption for winning the 2011 PGA Championship expired. His chances to represent USA teams in worldwide play had dried up, his preferred putting method was banned, and the confidence that once put him on the cusp of greatness was shot. 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. His first putt bounced in the fringe and finished five feet short, then his par effort was left the whole way. Only the top 30 advance to the Tour Championship, marking the first time Spieth has missed the event since turning pro. "It made me feel calm, which is rare". To win and to put everything together when I didn't know if I was going to win again, to get to the Tour Championship, to have them here and have what's going on in my life is just so unbelievable.

"I thought I needed to shoot something around 62 today to have a chance", Woods said. "The quest to get better is what I really wake up for in the morning. and what gets me out of bed".

Woods took away any suspense about getting back to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

Bradley two-putted from just off the green for the victory, which sees him jump to 6th in the FedEx Cup standings. He now has the most top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season.

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times.

"I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year, but it's kind of tough", Spieth said.
