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

Woods' 66 kept him within touch of the leaders on day three Woods 66 kept him within touch of the leaders on day three

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

Keegan Bradley prevailed Monday at rain-soaked Aronimink Golf Club to beat Justin Rose in a playoff to win the BMW Championship. With this victory, Bradley moves from No. 52 in the rankings to No. 6.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship victor, captured his fourth PGA Tour title and won for the first time since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2012. The torrential downpours over the past few days at Aronimink almost forced the tournament to be shortened to 54 holes. His swing was worthy of a multi-shot win but he again missed key birdie chances throughout the week.

Heavy rains soiled Round 4 of the 2018 BMW Championship Sunday to the point where play was suspended before it could get underway. Tee times were moved up significantly, but the rains kept falling, and falling, and falling. "It's been a hard road back and I just can't believe it".

Luckily for Bradley, the Tour was able to stage the final round outside Philadelphia.

Even with a gray sky and drizzle, the fourth round began Monday with hopes of getting in 72 holes. And this was the kind of day when more than one mistake was going to be costly. A host of contenders tried to make a run at the top.

Two other events have finished beyond the weekend, including Australia's Jason Day and Swede Alex Noren in a Monday playoff at Torrey Pines and American Troy Merritt winning July's Barbasol Championship in Kentucky on a Monday.

American Xander Schauffele and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy shared second place, with Schauffele a strong candidate to be named the final Ryder Cup team selection on Monday by U.S. captain Jim Furyk.

Hurricane Isaac is now located 1,305 miles west of the Windward Islands with sustained wind speeds of 75 mph. On the forecast track, Olivia will be approaching the main Hawaiian Islands later Tuesday and Tuesday night.

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 made birdie on No. 9 to go out in 31.

McIlroy finished up on 18 under par, two shots off the lead. That's something that I will look back on this week and think it was an incredible achievement.

As it turned out, both the co-leaders gave a little back.

That left Bradley to tap in for the win. Only six players shot worse in the second round.

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

Rose missed a four-foot putt that would have extended the play-off.

However, Rose faltered himself.
