Tiger Woods finishes sixth at BMW Championship, qualifies for 2019 US Open

A relatively straightforward putt for par on the final hole of the Philadelphia course was all that stood in the way of the Englishman and the winner's spot, but the ball spun around the hole and away to force Rose into a playoff against Keegan Bradley.

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.

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.

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. This is the first time he did not win. "Had I made a few more putts this week could have been a different deal coming down the stretch, though I finished at 17 under and good looks on two of the last few holes".

Furyk had been slated to announce Monday his final captain's pick for this month's Ryder Cup in Paris, but that was postponed when the BMW's finish was pushed to Monday and, potentially given the forecast, even Tuesday. He said it wasn't how he wanted to get to No. 1, but he was ecstatic regardless.

The NCA is set up to tackle the most serious and organised crime posing the highest risk to public security in Britain. In a statement , the airline added: "We have notified the police and relevant authorities".

Rory McIlroy birdied three of his last six holes, the last one on No. 18 from 40 feet, to finish one shot behind. "It's been a hard road back and I just can't believe it". He will enter the Tour Championship in second place in the FedEx Cup standings, trailing only Bryson DeChambeau, who won the first two playoff events. Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed (-12) are both five back with an outside shot to make some noise. "I kind of fell of the radar there for a little while". It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams, to outside the top 100 in the world. He had his fourth back surgery last April, and at this time past year he had just been cleared to chip and putt. He's in fifth at the moment, and that's a pretty good result.

Jordan Spieth was the most prominent player to miss out.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth.

Spieth now faces potential sanctions from the PGA Tour for failing to play 25 events in the 2017-18 season.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this season. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one (new event) every year.
