Bradley holds off Rose in playoff to win at Aronimink

  • Casey withdraws after 3rd round of BMW Championship

11 and 13. Within two of the lead, he put his tee shot in a green-side bunker at the par-3 14th hole and effectively ended his shot at winning when his par put slid right of the hole.

That's because Rose bogeyed the 72nd hole then the first playoff hole to lose the BMW Championship to American Keegan Bradley, who picked up his fourth career PGA Tour victory but first since 2012.

The final round was played on Monday after persistent rain left the course unplayable on Sunday.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile was five shots behind after a 66 in the third round that didn't allow him to make up any ground on the lead. There are no guarantees that the waterlogged course will be playable, meaning the event may be reduced to 54 holes, which Rose would win with a 17-under-par total of 193.

Casey cited back pain for pulling out of the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink on Monday morning. His chances to represent USA teams in worldwide play had dried up, his preferred putting method was banned, and the confidence that once put him on the cusp of greatness was shot.

He fell short again in the playoff, missing a 5-foot par putt that would have kept him alive. That projects him to move up 22 spots into the 30th position in the FedEx Cup, which would bump out Jordan Spieth.

Even though Woods prefers tougher conditions this is the second time over the last month he's almost gotten it done in a birdie-fest, including the PGA Championship at Bellerive.

The Northern Irishman finished on 18 under par.

Bryson DeChambeau enters the Tour Championship atop the FedEx Cup points race.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship victor, captured his fourth PGA Tour title and won for the first time since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2012.

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

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

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times.

"I'm very proud of it, it's been a good stretch of golf, I've really played solidly for over a year".

"I've played a few tournaments where I came close at the end, but just didn't quite get the W", Woods said afterward. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one (new event) every year.
