Tiger shoots 65 in Monday finish at BMW Championship

No play was possible at Aronimink on Sunday

Rose, reigning Olympic champion and 2013 US Open victor, could have sealed victory with a par putt at the last regulation hole but missed narrowly.

Rose joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald among those from England to hold the top spot. Spieth also must qualify for the season finale to play the minimum 25 events this season or face a fine.

"I turned pro at 18 and it took me 20 odd years to get to world No 1, but my advice would be to just dedicate yourself to improving, to learning, to trying to get better".

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.

American Keegan Bradley ended a six-year drought when he won the BMW Championship in a playoff with Justin Rose on Monday, though the Englishman's consolation was to become world number one.

The three-time major champion, who was in contention to win both the Masters and The Open this year, didn't do enough at the other tournaments nor at the BMW Championship to advance to the season-ending tournament in Atlanta, which is for the top 30 players in FedEx Cup points.

Speaking about his new ranking, he added: "That's obviously boyhood dream stuff, something I'm incredibly proud of". "I kind of fell of the radar there for a little while". 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. ". I'm delighted to be world No. 1".

But bogeys on the 10th and 14th holes derailed his hopes and he ran out of holes, playing the back nine in 34.

Justin Rose was ahead by one shot, all because of one putt.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth.

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 birdied the par-5 ninth to go out in 31.

For the sixth time in his career, Woods shot 263 or better. "It was hard to get ready to play because I was like, 'Man, if they call it, I'm good.' But I was only three back".

Disappointed not to win despite moving to second behind Bryson DeChambeau in the FedEx Cup standings, he added: "I've been to the top of the game".

He put any doubts of him not being ready for the Ryder Cup to bed by firing off three straight rounds of 65 to start off the BMW Championship.

"I'm glad it's over", Matsuyama said. A couple of holes into the final round, Woods is now just two strokes back.

Last year, Spieth met the 1 in 4 rule and played 24 times.

Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under.
