Tiger Woods gets close, falls short once again at BMW Championship

The pair finished one shot ahead of Americans Xander Schauffele and Billy Horschel.

For Keegan, today's playoff win over top-ranked Justin Rose is his first PGA Tour title in more than six years.

However, the Englishman had the consolation of moving to the world number one spot after his runner-up finish. Only Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Faldo have held the No. 1 ranking for longer.

Storms sweeping across the East Coast of the USA wreaked havoc at the Aronimink Golf Club near Philadelphia with a soaked golf course finally being deemed unfit for Sunday play soon after 2pm local time.

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.

But his achievement was then slightly overshadowed following a disappointing additional hole at the Aronimink Golf Club which saw him edged out by victor Keegan Bradley.

Casey cited back pain for pulling out of the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink on Monday morning. Otherwise, all signs point to Finau, who was six shots out of the lead.

The US Forest Service said the blaze is now covering 38 square miles, up from 34 square miles on Thursday night. Areas east of Trinity River from Trinity Lake to Ramshorn Road are under advisory evacuation notice.

However, Rose's approach stalled in the wind and landed short of the green, and his mis-judged pitch stopped 15 feet from the hole before his par-putt caught a big piece of the hole but stayed out.

For Spieth, it's more than just missing the Tour Championship for the first time.

"I'm speechless; it took a lot of hard work and lot of people helped me along the way", Bradley said. "I was just trying to play".

"I'm very proud of it, it's been a good stretch of golf, I've really played solidly for over a year". This is the first time he did not win. "But at the end of the season here, to say that I've made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment". The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings earn exemptions to the Masters, U.S. Open and Then Open - although Woods has lifetime entry to the Masters and an exemption through age 60 at The Open. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began previous year.

He had to rally for a 66 on Saturday, and while he was 11 shots out of the lead, another round would give him a chance to move back into the top 30, avoid violating a new policy and save the PGA Tour a headache.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this year, which includes the Ryder Cup.
