Keegan Bradley wins BMW Championship after epic Justin Rose choke

Keegan Bradley wins BMW Championship after epic Justin Rose choke

A "delighted" Justin Rose of Britain assured the world number one ranking for the first time in his career Monday with a solo runner-up finish at the PGA BMW Championship.

It was incredible there was any play possible at all in Philadelphia, with an inch of rain overnight saturating the course, but officials deemed that play was possible and the first groups took to the course just after 7.30am local time.

"We just have to wait until in the morning to see exactly what we're going to have to try to do". The torrential downpours over the past few days at Aronimink almost forced the tournament to be shortened to 54 holes. Whereas TV coverage was supposed to shift on Sunday from Golf Channel to NBC, for Monday it will remain on Golf Channel after a late start and there will be no PGA Tour Live online streaming at all. If not, the final round could be scrapped and the 54-hole scores would stand. He found a bunker on the par-3 14th for another bogey. Rory McIlroy went bogey-free on the day, but only made two birdies to finish in fifth.

It was the sixth time in Woods' career that he shot 263 or lower over four rounds, and the first time he did not win that tournament.

Billy Horschel was tied with Bradley and Rose for the lead for the better part of the back nine on Monday before finishing with a 64 and in third place at 19 under along with Xander Schauffele (67).

Fast forward to this past weekend, Bradley stunned the thousands of patrons by climbing all the way back from 30th place to eventually taking the lead with a few holes to play. 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.

The Phoenix Suns will return to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff , Arizona for training camp from september 25-28. Phoenix drafted the No. 1 overall pick, Deandre Ayton , in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

All wasn't lost, as Bradley was granted a free drop from alongside the grandstand. Rose didn't need any heroics to make par, but when his chip came up 16 feet short of the hole, there was work left to do. Schauffele made par, and the playoff was set.

Woods missed a 6-footer for birdie at the seventh hole but when he birdied the ninth, he turned in 31 and was just one stroke back of the leaders.

By qualifying for the Tour Championship for a third straight season, Woodland guarantees himself entry into many of golf's biggest championships during the 2018-19 season.

Rose chose to putt from the collar, and his ball skipped three times before coming to rest inside five feet.

Keegan Bradley held off Justin Rose to win the BMW Championship in a playoff.

Jordan Spieth will not be joining him.
