Bradley beats Rose in playoff to win BMW Championship

The field gets cut down to 30 players for the final golf match of the playoffs, and right now Fowler would be included because he is ranked 26th in the FedEx Cup standings and is projected to be 19th when this tournament is finished. "It's so great", an emotional Bradley said in a greenside interview after securing his fourth PGA Tour victory.

"I'm speechless (with the BMW win); it took a lot of hard work and lot of people helped me along the way". "I kind of fell of the radar there for a little while".

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

On a course where he once won the AT&T National, Rose shot a 3-under 67 on Monday to get into a playoff with Keegan Bradley. The 38-year-old is also the Olympic gold medallist from Rio 2016.

Woods has been in the hunt at majors, finishing second at last month s PGA Championship and leading on Sunday in July s British Open, but still seeks his first win in more than five years.

British beef would be 'uncompetitive overnight' after no-deal Brexit - food officials
In that event, Jaguar Land Rover CEO Ralf Speth said a so-called "hard Brexit " could result in the "worst of times" for the U.K. The rift deepened this week with Johnson comparing May's plan to a "suicide vest" on Britain's constitution.

He didn't get a trophy on this trip.

He has the No. 1 ranking to prove it. Rose, who overtook Dustin Johnson, joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald as the only Englishmen to reach No. 1.

"I d love to go the Tour Championship winning because obviously I want to get to number one by winning golf tournaments, but today was fun", Rose said. "It's (the stuff of) boyhood dreams".

It would clearly be a huge boost for Europe's Ryder Cup hopes if Rose was successful and, indeed, if he proceeded to win the $10million (£7.7million) FedEx Cup bonus at the Tour Championship on the Sunday immediately preceding the biennial dust-up.

A small but dedicated group of umbrella-toting locals made their way to the course for the Monday finish and saw a good show for their efforts. And this was the kind of day when more than one mistake was going to be costly. Woods wound up with a 65.

Sharks acquire Erik Karlsson from Senators in blockbuster trade
Nine years ago on September 12, 2009, the Senators dealt winger Dany Heatley to the Sharks on the first day of camp. Lee, who was also GM of the Senators' AHL affiliate, resigned from both jobs with the organization last month.

Such was the scoring at Aronimink that Woods had a 72-hole score of 263 for the sixth time of his career. The other five times he won; this one got him a tie for sixth. He hit what he thought was one of the better putts he had ever struck under pressure, a 15-footer for par in regulation, only to see it spin hard around the back edge of the cup.

Tiger Woods mounted another vintage charge but dropped shots on his back-nine has been the story of his comeback season from spinal surgery. He had his fourth back surgery last April, and at this time previous year he had just been cleared to chip and putt.

"It's a game changer for a player like me that's not in the top 50 to get in the Tour Championship", Bradley said.

Jordan Spieth will not be joining him.

All this means the Tour Championship, featuring the top 30 points earners on tour this year, will have some unexpected faces - and will be missing some familiar faces. This year he did not add a new event, and the Ryder Cup - which counts - will give him just 24. As the ninth-ranked golfer in the world, he is one of the top players on tour week to week when healthy, so he was a favorite to be the overall playoff champ if he had played in all the events.
