BMW Championship suspended due to bad weather

Rose is the 22nd player to reach No. 1 in a world ranking that began in 1986.

Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, thrust his arms toward the gray sky and drizzle in celebration and waved his family onto the 18th hole. To be back here and win this tournament is just incredible."Rose, unlike Bradley, will be among five players who can capture the US PGA $10 million season playoff crown by winning in two weeks at the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta".

"I'm glad it's over", Matsuyama said. "Was riding some momentum (after the Dell Technologies Championship) but all in all, just game kind of got a little off". He has only missed one putt within ten feet the entire tournament, and it is probably because he had the chance to work exclusively on that while he was injured since he could not make full swings.

However, a steady round proved not enough around a soaked Aronimink, with McIlroy's two-under 68 bettered by Rose, who shot a three-under 67, and eventual victor Bradley, whose six-under 64 took him into a play-off with the Englishman. He won the U.S. Open in 2013 by denying Phil Mickelson.

"It's boyhood dreams, know what I mean?"

Rose left the Aronimink course on Sunday night - where he won the AT&T National in 2010 - with his lips understandably tightly shut, but his words the previous evening, after his third-round 63, showed he realised what was on the line. Only Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Faldo have held the No. 1 ranking for longer. The Englishman could become the world number one with a victory, even if the event were declared complete after three rounds.

"I was just so happy to see them run out".

"It's been a good stretch of golf, I've played really solidly for the best part of a year". However, he's back at the BMW Championship, and he's already back in the hunt for a big-time victory.

It's something I can say now in my career I've been the best player in the world. He needed just a top 30 finish at the BMW Championship to qualify for the event, and he would need an absolute meltdown to finish outside that range at this point. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began previous year. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one [new event] every year.

Another is Tony Finau, who celebrated his share of eighth place by being named as Jim Furyk's final pick for the United States Ryder Cup team.
