Bradley snaps six-year win drought to capture BMW crown

Justin Rose- Justin Rose becomes world No 1 – 20 years after being tipped for greatness

Bradley topped Rose with a par on the first playoff hole to win the rain-plagued BMW Championship for his first PGA Tour victory in six years.

By virtue of his second runner-up position in as many weeks, the 38-year-old leapfrogged Dustin Johnson to become just the fourth Englishman - after Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald - to top the rankings.

He and Bradley finished on 20 under par after a rain-delayed final round and the 2011 US PGA champion required just one extra hole to seal victory.

Rose trails Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two playoff events, in the FedEx Cup standings.

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

Rose could have won in regulation but lipped out on the last hole to force the playoff.

Ultimately, Rose's bogey on the same par four 20 minutes later was one to forget, but by then the achievement he will always remember was cast.

Jordan Spieth's pockets could get a little lighter soon after he failed to qualify for the Tour Championship on Monday at the BMW Championship.

Hurricane Florence Strengthens, Poses Major Threat to Southeast and Mid-Atlantic
Hurricane Isaac is holding steady at Category 1 strength as it moves in the open Atlantic near the Lesser Antilles. Considering Hurricane Florence is only growing stronger, let's just hope that these rainstorms are all we get.

"It's boyhood dream stuff, it's something I'm incredibly proud of", Rose said.

What will it take for you to consider Tiger Woods "back"? "This has been a long time coming so I'm thrilled".

"No 2 is an incredible spot to be in, and it's a week where there are many scenarios in play", he said. These are two of the four tournaments for the FedEx Cup with the final competition taking place next weekend which sees the top 30 take part.

Marc Leishman is the only other Australian to advance to the Tour Championship and although he is 29th on point he remains upbeat about his chances.

"It's been a consistent season so I'm glad to have made the Tour Champs - hopefully my last event of the year will be my best and I can get a win", Leishman, whose 68 lifted him to a share of 41st at six under.

The Ryder Cup at the end of the month would have counted as Spieth's 25th official start, but the showdown in Paris will now be his 24th and leaves him facing the prospect of a large fine or even a suspension. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began a year ago.

"If it becomes a situation then, you know, I'll obviously accept whatever fine it is, move on and try and add one new event every year, but it's kind of tough".
