  • Bmw Championship Faces Monday Finish Hopefully

If the final round starts Monday and more than half the field completes the round, the BMW Championship would go into Tuesday if necessary to finish.

McIlroy carded a two-under-par 68 to finish on -18, three shots off Bradley and Rose, but could have put further pressure on the duo had he converted some of his chances on the green.

Justin Rose didn't win the 2018 BMW Championship - in fact, he lost in heartbreaking fashion during a sudden death playoff - but he did achieve something maybe even bigger on Monday at Aronimink.

Rose, who reeled off nine consecutive pars to finish round three on Saturday after an outward nine of 29, also finished runner-up in this event a year ago albeit at another venue.

The American shares 27th after 54 holes and is projected to fall from 27th to 31st in the points standings, one place shy of Atlanta. Play was also suspended Saturday morning as players watched rain pelt the course.

Woods began the final round at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa. five shots off the lead of England's Justin Rose. He finished the tournament at -17, not good enough to win, but more than good enough to keep himself in the FedEx Cup conversation. Certainly feeling like he needed a hero effort at this time, he went the opposite way on his second shot, with his ball finding the greenside grandstand.

Rose missed a four-foot putt that would have extended the playoff but still became the 22nd different player to hold the world number one ranking.

Bradley two-putted from just off the green for the victory, which sees him jump to 6th in the FedEx Cup standings. As for Bradley, this was his first PGA victory in six years and he looked elated to finally get over the line once more. Then, Rose cracked for basically the first time all year.

He fell short again in the playoff, missing a 5-foot par putt that would have kept him alive. Woods finished the regular season 20th in FedEx Cup points and had slipped to 25th heading into the BMW. "I'd have loved to have got there by winning, but today was fun". "It made me feel calm, which is rare".

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times. I'm not sure. I talked to the tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it and it becomes a situation then.

"I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year, but it's kind of tough", Spieth said.
