Keegan Bradley wins BMW Championship after epic Justin Rose choke

As for Bradley, this was his first PGA victory in six years and he looked elated to finally get over the line once more. The fact that it nearly didn't happen this week makes it that much sweeter.

Bradley has beaten new world number one Justin Rose at the first playoff hole at the penultimate playoff event in Pennsylvania. With this victory, Bradley moves from No. 52 in the rankings to No. 6.

By getting into the Tour Championship, Woods also earns a spot in next year's WGC-Mexico Championship. "We obviously need it to stop right now so we have two to two and a half hours to let it drain down and get the maintenance crew out there to see if we can push some water around".

Despite Rose shooting 67 on Monday, Bradley came through with the 64 to force the playoff.

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. - Persistent rain caused the PGA Tour to suspend the BMW Championship on Sunday, and a poor forecast for Monday may completely derail the third leg of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff series. Tee times were moved up significantly, but the rains kept falling, and falling, and falling. "To be back here and win this tournament is just incredible".

Still, Rose led. Until, of course, he didn't.

Returning for a rare Monday finish due to the weather - for the second week in a row after the traditional Labor Day conclusion to the Deutsche Bank Championship - McIlroy started one shot off Justin Rose.

But he missed the green on the 10th and made bogey.

American 14-time major victor Tiger Woods closed with a 65, moving up to a share of sixth, one shot behind McIlroy.

Sunday's play at the BMW Championship was completely washed out - but not before the players were subjected to endless delays. Rose ended up missing the putt, giving Bradley the win.

Fast forward to this past weekend, Bradley stunned the thousands of patrons by climbing all the way back from 30th place to eventually taking the lead with a few holes to play.

All wasn't lost, as Bradley was granted a free drop from alongside the grandstand. However, Rose's bogey on 18 was particularly bad, as a par would have given him the win.

However, Rose faltered himself. Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele tied for third, one shot behind Bradley and Rose, and Rory McIlory finished alone in fifth.
