Mixed feelings for Justin Rose after play-off defeat

Woods feels he could need a final-round 61 to have a chance

Woods feels he could need a final-round 61 to have a chance

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 United States captain Jim Furyk.

Woods missed a 6-footer for birdie at the seventh hole but when he birdied the ninth, he turned in 31 and was just one stroke back of the leaders.

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.Bradley parred the first extra hole to edge Rose after the pair had finished regulation on 20-under-par 260 at waterlogged Aronimink in suburban Philadelphia. Though he was runner-up at the FedEx Cup playoff event, he didn't come up short in the world ranking.

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

Heavy rains soiled Round 4 of the 2018 BMW Championship Sunday to the point where play was suspended before it could get underway. Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed (-12) are both five back with an outside shot to make some noise.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Barcelona , and the Catalan giants are ready to make the mega move for him when the January 2019 transfer window opens.

The event is the third of four tournaments in the PGA Tour's end-of-year FedEx Cup Playoffs and featured a field of 69 players from the top of the playoff standings. His chances to represent US teams in global play had dried up, his preferred putting method was banned, and the confidence that once put him on the cusp of greatness was shot. 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. Spieth started at 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th.

Justin Rose insisted he would not let his play-off defeat at the BMW Championship take the gloss off becoming world No 1 for the first time in his career. Then, Rose cracked for basically the first time all year. I'm not sure. I talked to the tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it and it becomes a situation then. "It made me feel calm, which is rare". This is the first time he did not win.

The top 30 on a season-long points list advance to the Tour Championship in Atlanta starting on Thursday week.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this season.

"We've got kind of a mess out there", he said.
