Rose missed the fairway again on the first playoff hole-18 again-and his approach bounded off the grandstand right of the green, finishing just off the putting surface.

Bradley, who birdied the 16th and 17th holes to make his move, finished with his fourth career victory and first since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. "I'd have loved to have got there by winning, but today was fun". He shot a 6-under 64 Monday to force the playoff at 20-under.

Rose's runner-up finish is projected to vault him to the world number one ranking.

"I've played a few tournaments where I came close at the end, but just didn't quite get the W", Woods said afterward.

TV coverage for Monday's 2018 BMW Championship's Round 4 begins at 10 am EST on Golf Channel.

Speaking about his new ranking, he added: "That's obviously boyhood dream stuff, something I'm incredibly proud of".

Five-time BMW championship victor Tiger Woods mounted another vintage charge, but a late back-nine stumble has been the story of his comeback season from spinal fusion surgery.

Boris Johnson was booed by cricket fans when he was shown on the big screen at the England v India test. His article in the Mail on Sunday ramped up speculation that he plans to challenge her leadership.

The final round was played on Monday after persistent rain left the course unplayable on Sunday.

Rose leads Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele, who is trying to claim a captain's pick in the US Ryder Cup team.

For the sixth time in his career, Woods shot 263 or better.

"To say that I made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods said. 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. And he will face a possible penalty from the PGA Tour for failing to play enough events this year as part of its field enhancement criteria.

For Spieth, it's more than just missing the Tour Championship for the first time. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

Jordan Spieth was the most prominent player to miss out.
