Bradley bests Rose: 1st win in 6 years

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.

"I can't believe this".

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.

Winner Bradley said: "It means everything, it took a lot of hard work to get back to this spot".

Bradley, 32, burst onto the scene with a major victory at the 2011 PGA Championship, but until Monday had not won since 2012.

The final round of the PGA Tour's BMW Championship got moved to Monday thanks to weather, and that understandably led to less fans there to watch it, but at least one of the remaining fans seems to be having a pretty good time.

Bradley took home the trophy and left Eagles fans in the crowd with this message.

And when it finally ended, a day late, with rain still falling on Aronimink Golf Club, it was Bradley celebrating on the 18th green, raising his arms in victory after defeating Justin Rose in a playoff.

European Ryder Cup star Paul Casey withdrew from the BMW Championship on Monday due to a back problem. Both Bradley and Rose struggled again on the sudden death hole, hitting their second shots over the green.

However he misjudged his putt through the soggy grass and it came up well short of the hole, before he missed the par putt.

"It's not the way I have normally started the playoffs but I'm still in a good position and, mathematically, everyone at the Tour Championships can win the FedExCup", Day said.

"Just a poor playoff".

"I didn't think that it mattered much but I knew if I could shoot 4-, 5-under in tough conditions that it would make a little bit of a difference, " Spieth said. If he doesn't qualify, Spieth would violate a recent policy requiring PGA Tour members to play a tournament they haven't been to in the last four years.

"I thought I needed to shoot something around 62 today to have a chance", Woods said. In a few weeks' time, he'll be part of the European team contesting the Ryder Cup in Paris, but on Sunday he was playing a frustrating waiting game to play a round that would be of little outcome.
