Your new No. 1

Bradley has beaten new world number one Justin Rose at the first playoff hole at the penultimate playoff event in Pennsylvania.

Rose got a title earned over the last two years by a mathematical formula, and over the last 20 years by sheer determination. However, Schauffele was just one stroke behind after posting a 63 of his own, and four golfers were two shots back at 6-under, including Justin Thomas, the defending FedExCup champion.

Both overnight leader Rose (67) and Bradley (64) bogeyed the final hole in regulation to finish at 20-under-par after a rain-soaked final round on Monday. But a No. 1 ranking will do. But a No. 1 ranking will do for Rose, who joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald as the only Englishmen to reach the top spot.

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.

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.

But even if he doesn't, it should be remembered that Rose would assume pole position on the strength of a fabulous body of work over the last two years, not a weather delay.

Woods is 3-under par through seven holes this morning.

Fowler told ESPN early this week that his injury might have been a blessing in disguise because it gave him a chance to rest during one of the most hectic times of the season.

For the sixth time in his career, Woods shot 263 or better. To bogey the 72nd hole and to get into a play-off is obviously nothing to be happy about, but the putt I had to win was the best putt I've ever hit to try and win a tournament. "But tomorrow or the next day, the week after, I'll look back at this and think it was an awesome moment in my career".

Five-time BMW championship victor Tiger Woods mounted another vintage charge, but a late back-nine stumble has been the story of his comeback season from spinal fusion surgery.

"I did have some good plays but I struggled with my putts. Nice to be back without pain". He had his fourth back surgery last April, and at this time a year ago he had just been cleared to chip and putt. Spieth started at 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th.

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. - Jordan Spieth is going to miss the Tour Championship for the first time in his professional career.

The event is the third of four tournaments in the PGA Tour's end-of-year FedEx Cup Playoffs and featured a field of 69 players from the top of the playoff standings.

Still to be determined is the penalty.

"I'm glad it's over", Matsuyama said. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began previous year.
