Mixed feelings for Justin Rose after play-off defeat

Rory Mc Ilroy firmly in contention at the BMW Championship in Philadelphia after a stunning round of 63

Justin Rose holds the 54-hole lead by 1 shot over Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.

Spieth began the year ranked second in the world but has dropped to 10th after failing to win and posting just five top-10 finishes. Tiger Woods and Webb Simpson finished tied for sixth at 17-under. Woods finished Saturday with another four-under round, then waited out the rain on Sunday and teed off Monday at -12. The top 30 players in the FedEx Cup standings will take part in that tournament.

"That's the thing with sudden-death play-offs, you make a mistake and it's all over".

The final FedEx Cup Playoff event before the Tour Championship Sept. 20-23 in Atlanta cost Jordan Spieth a berth in the season finale.

"To say that I made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods said.

Perhaps most important of all to Woods - the Tour Championship offers another chance for a victory, where he will need to defeat just 29 players.

Serena Williams sparks sexism debate; tennis star fined $17G
Williams was most incensed by the first code violation she received - for coaching from her box. "It's hard to generalise things".

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m. "I'll represent the United States over there (in France for the Ryder Cup) and also compete with the top players on the tour".

"I hit a great putt in regulation to win it", Rose said.

If at least half of the final round is completed Monday before more expected rain arrives then the remaining holes will be pushed to Tuesday. He had his fourth back surgery in April of last year, and at this time last year he had just been cleared to chip and putt. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began previous year.

The course has had in excess of 3 inches of rain for the week, according to Slugger White, vice president of rules and competition for the PGA Tour. "The belly putter was a tougher transition than I thought, and I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while".

"I was in control of my own destiny but just didn't have it this week", said Spieth after coming tied 55th.
