How Much Does the Winner Make — BMW Championship Purse

How Much Does the Winner Make — BMW Championship Purse”

Tony Finau, who carded a final-round 65 and finished tied eighth on 16 under, was named to the final vacant spot on the US Ryder Cup team on Monday by captain Jim Furyk.

The consolation prize was obvious: Rose replaced Dustin Johnson at No. 1 in the world.

It is well documented that Rose had a tricky start to his professional golf career, as he missed his first 21 cuts after turning professional and wins were few and far between. "That's something that I will look back on this week and think it was an incredible achievement".

"We did it, Dad", Rose tweeted, in a tribute to his father and mentor, Ken, who died from cancer aged 57 in 2002.

"I hit a great putt in regulation to win it", Rose said.

He didn't get a trophy on this trip.

Rose got a title earned over the last two years by a mathematical formula, and over the last 20 years by sheer determination. "It is the stuff of boyhood dreams", he said, his smile widening by the second. But to get to world No. 1 is unbelievable.

"If it becomes a situation then, you know, I'll obviously accept whatever fine it is, move on and try and add one new event every year, but it's kind of tough. I'm delighted to get to the top", he told Sky Sports.

It took him almost four years before he won for the first time in Europe.

Failing to make the Tour Championship means Spieth will fall short of a PGA Tour requirement to compete in 25 events in a season, while he also did not fulfil a stipulation to play a tournament he had not featured in over the last four years.

Woods took away any suspense of getting back to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

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. Argue about the math, but not the results. While the lowest-ranked players could still win, they would basically need DeChambeau and the rest of the leaders to go to the wrong course. Greg Norman, Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh each returned to No. 1 by losing in playoffs.

Currently, Woods leads the PGA Tour with a 68.42 scoring average in the third round, and average that ranges from 46th to 133rd in the other three rounds. That put him in violation of a new PGA Tour rule created to route big-name players to smaller events. "That's the thing with sudden-death play-offs, you make a mistake and it's all over".

How long will it last?

For Rose, the 20 years and seven weeks it took him to reach the top was as rewarding - certainly memorable - as the moment he got there. Two days later, he was runner-up at the British Open.

He has the No. 1 ranking to prove it.
