Rain-hit BMW Championship final round postponed

Rain-hit BMW Championship final round postponed”

Rory McIlroy's BMW Championship charge was washed away by the Pennsylvania rain as he finished two shots off eventual victor Keegan Bradley in fifth at Aronimink Golf Club.

■ United States captain Jim Furyk has named Tony Finau as his final wild card pick for the Ryder Cup. After birdying the par-three 17th he moved to 21 under par. 5, 6 and 9 to offset a bogey at the par-3 eighth and make the turn at 2-under 33.

Back to Rose on the 17th.

On his putt at the last to win, he said: "I thought it was as good a putt as I've hit to win a tournament".

"It was a hard road back, but it feels good".

"When I used the belly, I just putted", Bradley said.

Relentless as the rain, Bradley accomplished what Woods could not, staving off Rose, the new No. 1 player in the world, to claim the trophy - and Bradley's first PGA Tour victory in six years.

There was a silver lining for Rose, however, who moved to the top of the world rankings for the first time in his career after his top-two finish, replacing Dustin Johnson at the summit.

Four of Europe's Ryder Cup side all also saw their campaigns end at the penultimate event, with Rafa Cabrera Bello in 41st position, Ian Poulter in 45th, Tyrrell Hatton in 54th and former FedExCup champion Henrik Stenson in 57th. I just wish I could have enjoyed the moment maybe.

Perhaps most important of all to Woods - the Tour Championship offers another chance for a victory, where he will need to defeat just 29 players.

"I talked to the Tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it and it becomes a situation then".

Tiger Woods, Webb Simpson and Scott Piercy tee off at 8:40 am EST.

Woods again had some putting issues, missing three times inside of 15 feet three times.

A fifth-place finish in Philadelphia lifted McIlroy up seven places to 17th, with Woods a further three places back in 20th after ending in a share of sixth. He is the No. 2 seed behind Bryson DeChambeau among the top 30 who advance to the Tour Championship starting September 20 at East Lake in Atlanta, giving him a clear shot at the $10 million prize.

"I'm glad it's over", Matsuyama said.

The PGA Tour has a rule called the "strength of field regulation", which requires golfers to either play 25 events in the current or previous season or add a new event in the current season (that they did not play in the prior season).

"I was in control of my own destiny but just didn't have it this week", said Spieth after coming tied 55th. "I don t know if that counts".
