Englishman Rose becomes world number one

Tiger Woods

Bradley played first and chipped to within two feet. 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.

Woods was referring to the special exemption that he was sure to get and unlikely to need in order to play in the championship he's won three times.

Woodland finished 19th at the Tour Championship a year ago, posting a final score of 1-under 279 at East Lake. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

It was Bradley's first victory in 160 events.

"That's an incredible achievement, something I'm extraordinarily proud of", Rose told Rogar Maltbie of Golf Channel. "I just can't believe it". To win and to put everything together when I didn't know if I was going to win again, to get to the Tour Championship, to have them here and have what's going on in my life is just so wonderful.

"This has been a hard road back", Bradley said after the win.

US PGA Tour officials were skeptical of completing full 72 holes in the BMW Championship after heavy rain wiped out all play on Sunday (Monday in Manila), swamping Aronimink Golf Club.

Stock up, stock down after Steelers' 21-21 tie with Browns
Alex Smith passed for 255 yards and Adrian Peterson ran for 96 in their Washington debuts, and the visitors drubbed Arizona. Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward intercepted Roethlisberger twice in his National Football League debut.

The impetus behind the rule is so that fields across the board on the PGA Tour will stay healthy and so that some of the weaker events would get to see their favorite stars and superstars at some point.

Because of the wet conditions, players were allowed to lift, clean and place their ball in the course's closely mown areas.

Bradley, who birdied the 16th and 17th holes to storm up the leaderboard, finished with his fourth career victory and first since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He was steady throughout the cold and drizzly final round and had a one-stroke lead when he got to the 18th tee. However, he bogeyed No. 10 before gaining shots at Nos.

Spieth, 25, came into the week in the top 30 in points but couldn't recover from a second-round 71 in which he was one of just six players to shoot over par.

"I'm delighted to be world No. 1", Rose said. Young, aspiring golfers think about it.

"A lot has happened to me over these six years", Bradley said.

Fleetwood's round of 62 was the best of the day, with Bradley lurking three shots back of Rose. Rory McIlroy went bogey-free on the day, but only made two birdies to finish in fifth.
