BMW Championship suspended Sunday, play may resume Monday

Keegan Bradley prevailed Monday at rain-soaked Aronimink Golf Club to beat Justin Rose in a playoff to win the BMW Championship.

"That's an fantastic achievement, something I'm extraordinarily proud of", the Englishman said in a greenside interview after becoming the 22nd man to hold the top spot since the rankings began in 1986.

Bradley shot 20-under 260 for the week with a 64 Monday - play was called off Sunday due to heavy rains - and moved from 52nd to sixth in the FedEx Cup standings. To be back here and win this tournament is just incredible."Rose, unlike Bradley, will be among five players who can capture the US PGA $10 million season playoff crown by winning in two weeks at the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta".

"That's an awesome achievement, something I'm extraordinarily proud of", the Englishman said in a greenside interview after getting to the top of the tree. "I kind of fell of the radar there for a little while". Rose chose to putt his ball and left himself a knee-knocking five-footer, which he missed, allowing Bradley to tap in for the victory. "It's (the stuff of) boyhood dreams". He won the 2010 AT&T National at Aronimink and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion.

It was awesome play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times.

Englishman Justin Rose has become the World number one player in the latest Golf Rankings.

"I thought I needed to shoot something around 62 today to have a chance", Woods said.

"It's been a good stretch of golf, I've played really solidly for the best part of a year".

He closed out the tournament with a 14-under 266.

Jordan Spieth reached No. 1 in the world for the first time with a runner-up finish in the 2015 PGA Championship. This year he did not add a new event, and the Ryder Cup - which counts - will give him just 24.

Casey suffered a back problem on the eve of The Players Championship in May and was forced to pull out ahead of the first round at Sawgrass, although he returned to action a fortnight later in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, finishing in a tie for 20th. Spieth also must qualify for the season finale to play the minimum 25 events this season or face a fine. ". I'm delighted to be world No. 1".

Another is Tony Finau, who celebrated his share of eighth place by being named as Jim Furyk's final pick for the United States Ryder Cup team.
