McIlroy fifth after putting woes as Bradley wins play-off — BMW Championship

The fact that it nearly didn't happen this week makes it that much sweeter.

PGA officials intend to finish 72 holes at the rain-hit BMW Championship even if bad weather takes the USA tour's penultimate playoff event into Tuesday, organizers said Sunday.

It was Bradley's first victory in 160 events.

Still, Rose will overtake Dustin Johnson to become the world's top-ranked golfer for the first time, marking the culmination of 18 months of remarkably consistent play by the Englishman.

"We'll see what Mother Nature gives us", White said.

Rose looked on course for the 10th PGA Tour title of his career after American Bradley bogeyed the 18th following a wild tee shot. The fourth round was a washout Sunday because of steady rain that has left the course unplayable. That was about the time he was just starting to cope with back pain. The TOUR's final two updates on Sunday were nothing more than formalities.

Even with a gray sky and drizzle, the fourth round began Monday with hopes of getting in 72 holes. War of attrition. What you do in the offseason is what allows you to maintain it through the year, especially on the backside of the year, and I really didn't train for all this because I didn't know how much I was going to be playing. He found a bunker on the par-3 14th for another bogey. A host of contenders tried to make a run at the top.

Tiger Woods enjoyed a strong final round, finishing on -17 overall in a tie for sixth after a five-under-par 65.

Woods bagged four birdies on the opening nine and pulled within one shot of the lead on the back side. Otherwise, all signs point to Finau, who was six shots out of the lead.

Rodgers returns from injury to give Packers come-from-behind win
Khalil Mack dominated while Mitchell Trubisky ran Matt Nagy's offense to perfection, and Chicago took a 17-0 lead into halftime. Rodgers was injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on his left knee after a second-quarter sack.

All wasn't lost, as Bradley was granted a free drop from alongside the grandstand.

However, Rose faltered himself.

"The fairways are iffy and the tee boxes sloshy". Schauffele made par, and the playoff was set.

Rose got a lucky break in the playoff when his approach shot landed in a skybox but ricocheted back towards the hole and stopped just off the green.

Woods put together an admirable performance, which was highlighted by his birdie on hole No. 13.

Woods again had some putting issues, missing three times inside of 15 feet three times. It was the first putt he missed inside five feet all week, as he was 48 of 48 until then. 48 times, Rose holed out.

Jordan Spieth was the most prominent player to miss out. Rose, ever the sportsman, shook his hand and moved away to let Bradley have his moment. It was the first time he had won since becoming a father. "I'd have loved to have got there by winning, but today was fun". "The belly putter was a tougher transition than I thought, and I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while. It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams to being outside the top 100 in the world".

Bradley isn't off the radar anymore.

"It was about two years ago, maybe". The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings earn exemptions to the Masters, U.S. Open and Then Open - although Woods has lifetime entry to the Masters and an exemption through age 60 at The Open.
