Adjust Comment Print

American Keegan Bradley ended a six-year US PGA win drought on Monday, parring the first playoff hole to defeat Justin Rose and capture the BMW Championship. It was a bittersweet moment for Rose, though, as he squandered a winning position on the 18th before losing a sudden-death play-off to Keegan Bradley.

The final round was pushed back from Sunday to Monday because of constant rain that led to poor course conditions.

The judge said in the document that the complaint was "rambling, hard to decipher, and borders on the delusional". Servatii Bakery manager Jaenetta Cook said she hurried to lock the door after the first two shots were fired.

"It's been a good stretch of golf, I've played really solidly for the best part of a year". Bradley shot par to claim the $1.62 million paycheck and move into the top 30 of the FedExCup points standings.

Heavy rains soiled Round 4 of the 2018 BMW Championship Sunday to the point where play was suspended before it could get underway. Second place receives $972,000 and third place receives $612,000. "It's so great", an emotional Bradley said in a greenside interview after securing his fourth PGA Tour victory.

Woods caused some more noise - he's been doing that a lot in recent months before the largest galleries at every course - and got within one shot of the lead when he made birdie on No. 9 to go out in 31.

There was a silver lining for Rose, however, who moved to the top of the world rankings for the first time in his career after his top-two finish, replacing Dustin Johnson at the summit. It was glue coming out of that fringe there and then I under-read the putt a little bit.

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week", Spieth said after a closing 73 left him tied 55th on three-under. The Ryder Cup will make 24, but he now has no chance at 25. Once the putt fell on the 16th after another great approach, Bradley and Rose were nearly out of sight, three shots ahead of the Ulsterman at 21-under. The 38-year-old narrowly missed a putt for par though, leaving the pair level on 20-under and forcing the additional hole. Because he didn't add to his schedule a tournament he had not played in the last four years, he is in violation of the PGA Tour's scheduling policy.
