This Week In Golf: Bradley Clips Rose To Win BMW Championship

14 September, 2018, 16:06 | Author: Candice Daniels
  • No play was possible at Aronimink on Sunday

Rose, reigning Olympic champion and 2013 US Open victor, could have sealed victory with a par putt at the last regulation hole but missed narrowly.

Bradley won his fourth career title, his third in a playoff, to deny Rose his third triumph of the season even though the runner-up effort was enough to see the Englishman atop the rankings for the first time in his career. He made that for par to finish the third round in sixth place, three shots out of the lead.

Jordan Spieth is likely to be fined $20,000 for failing to play the minimum 25 tour events after failing to reach the Tour Championship.

"I've played a few tournaments where I came close at the end, but just didn't quite get the W", Woods said afterward. Woods finished Saturday with another four-under round, then waited out the rain on Sunday and teed off Monday at -12.

England's Justin Rose has become world number one for the first time after finishing in second place at the BMW Championship in Philadelphia.

Unlike most tournaments on the PGA Tour, there is a smaller field to split the $9 million prize pool with as the FedEx Cup playoffs have narrowed down the players eligible to compete over the past two weeks.

"It was the weirdest couple of days because I knew in the back of my mind if we didn't play, I was in Atlanta". "Was riding some momentum (after the Dell Technologies Championship) but all in all, just game kind of got a little off".

"I'm delighted to be world No. 1", Rose said.

Seattle Storm sweeps Washington Mystics
This has been an outstanding season for this team and without a doubt, their best season in franchise history. The Minnesota Lynx, who won the WNBA championship in 2017, were not invited to the White House.

Bradley was building an impressive resume in 2011 when he won the US PGA Championship for his second win of the year using an anchored putter.

But bogeys on the 10th and 14th holes derailed his hopes and he ran out of holes, playing the back nine in 34.

They will try again on Monday but with a similarly dire forecast and a saturated course that simply can not take any more punishment, there is every chance the event will be reduced to 54 holes. The other five times he won; this one got him a tie for sixth. 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.

Turns out, a 62 would have put him in the playoff.

What will it take for you to consider Tiger Woods "back"? A couple of holes into the final round, Woods is now just two strokes back.

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week", Spieth said after a closing 73 left him tied 55th on three-under.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this season.

Bradley and Xander Schauffele, who finished one shot out of the playoff, moved into the top 30 to qualify for East Lake, and Emiliano Grillo joined Spieth as the two players who fell out.
