Rose becomes world number one despite playoff loss to Bradley

England's Justin Rose finished second in the PGA BMW Championship but is now the new world number one

England's Justin Rose finished second in the PGA BMW Championship but is now the new world number one

Justin Rose, of England, tosses his club after missing a putt for par on the 18th hole during the BMW Championship golf tournament at the Aronimink Golf Club, Monday, Sept. 10, 2018, in Newtown Square, Pa. Keegan Bradley held off Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to win the rain-plagued BMW Championship for his first PGA Tour victory in six years.

Casey cited back pain for pulling out of the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink on Monday morning.

It was incredible there was any play possible at all in Philadelphia, with an inch of rain overnight saturating the course, but officials deemed that play was possible and the first groups took to the course just after 7.30am local time.

Rose could have won in regulation, but his 16-foot par putt on the final hole lipped out to force the playoff.

"Becoming number one in the world is boyhood dream stuff, something I am incredibly proud of", Rose said.

Tour members were encouraged to add a tournament to their schedule that they hadn't featured in for the last four years, although they would be exempt if they made 25 starts.

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

Rose is the fourth Englishman to... "But that second round. you can't shoot over par here and that threw me so much (further back)".

He will have an unexpected week off before joining the American team for the September 28-30 Ryder Cup in Paris.

"I thought I needed to shoot something around 62 today to have a chance", Woods said. He had his fourth back surgery last April, and at this time a year ago he had just been cleared to chip and putt.

The top 30 on a season-long points list advance to the Tour Championship in Atlanta starting on Thursday week.

Cape Town - Tiger Woods may not have won since making his comeback to the PGA Tour this season, but he is nonetheless happy just to be at the end-of-season Tour Championship.

Spieth would be the first player to violate the rule in its two years of existence.

Still to be determined is the penalty.

Spieth began the year ranked second in the world but has dropped to 10th after failing to win and posting just five top-10 finishes. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one [new event] every year. Bradley shot a 64, Rose a 67, Schauffele a 67, Woods a 65, Horschel a 64, and McIlroy a 68.
