Rose on top of the world but Bradley steals his thunder

Rose on top of the world but Bradley steals his thunder

Keegan Bradley has beaten Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to win the BMW Championship on Monday for his first PGA Tour victory in six long years.

Bradley parred the first extra hole to edge Englishman Rose after the pair had finished regulation at 20-under-par 260 at waterlogged Aronimink.

Schauffele bogeyed the 54th hole when he missed a 10-foot putt to fall out of a tie for the lead.

Jackson Hole will lay claim to professional golfer Keegan Bradley, especially now that its part-time links son just won the BMW Championship at Aronimink.

Woods, who is projected to rise to No. 21 in the world, would have needed a final-round 62 to be part of the playoff. "I'll represent the United States over there (in France for the Ryder Cup) and also compete with the top players on the tour". Spieth started at 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th.

"I've played a few tournaments (this year) where I was close at the end", Woods said, whose missed opportunities to win this year include the Arnold Palmer Invitational, British Open and PGA Championship. Second place receives $972,000 and third place receives $612,000. In 2011 Bradley earned his first victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and would later go on to capture his first major at the 2011 PGA Championship.




Tiger Woods, meanwhile was five shots behind after a 66 in the third round that didn't allow him to make up any ground on the lead.

"I would love to have got there by winning..."

After the Atlanta, Georgia event, the leading points scorer is crowned the FedEx Cup champion and pockets a $US10m ($A13.9m) bonus.

Bradley began the day three shots behind Rose but moved up the leaderboard with a six-under-par 64 as Rose shot a 67. His first putt bounced in the fringe and finished five feet short, then his par effort was left the whole way. He obviously made his schedule around the intended reality that he would both make it to the Tour Championship and be on the Ryder Cup team. "The belly putter was a tougher transition than I thought, and I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while.

It was really kind of unusual because I don't normally look at leaderboards, but I looked all day and I felt so solid", Bradley said.
