Justin Rose is new world No 1 but rues play-off loss

  • Tiger shoots 65 in Monday finish at BMW Championship

Another is Tony Finau, who celebrated his share of eighth place by being named as Jim Furyk's final pick for the United States Ryder Cup team.

They will try again on Monday but with a similarly dire forecast and a saturated course that simply can not take any more punishment, there is every chance the event will be reduced to 54 holes.

Rose looked on course for the tenth PGA Tour title of his career after American Bradley bogeyed the 18th following a wild tee shot.

But while Rose edged ahead of him with clutch birdies at the 16th and 17th, the former US Open and Olympic champion came up short at the last, chipped weakly and lipped out from 15 feet for victory.

But when Rose three-putted from off the green in sudden-death, Bradley tapped-in for par to win the second-last event of the FedExCup playoffs series.

That group now includes Bradley, who fought as hard as anyone to get there. That was about the time he was just starting to cope with back pain. Just constant feel and understanding of what it is because the game has changed, the body has changed and the body has changed dramatically since I first started.

Despite finishing second, Rose ascended to No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings, becoming the 22nd player to hold the position since it was introduced in 1986 and the fourth player from England to claim that perch, joining Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald.

The cove, accessible only by sea, features limestone cliffs towering above the beach of white sand and crystalline water. An air and sea search was conducted as a precaution in case there was anyone trapped under the rocks .

"It's boyhood dream stuff, it's something I'm incredibly proud of", Rose said. And that's so huge for a player where I am at this point because then I can play my way back into the top 50. That's definitely some consolation.

Still, he's happy to even have just a slight chance. "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".

Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under. Play was also suspended Saturday morning as players watched rain pelt the course. Rose chose to putt his ball and left himself a knee-knocking five-footer, which he missed, allowing Bradley to tap in for the victory.

But he made just one of them - from 11 inches after a stunning wedge to the 10th.

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. McIlroy had the consolation of moving up two spots to world No 6.

Bradley's move from 52nd to sixth in the FedEx Cup standings was bad news for Jordan Spieth, who fell from 27th to 31st and failed to qualify for the Tour Championship for the first time in his career.

"But give me half an hour maybe, and I might be able to say I really enjoyed it".
