Keegan Bradley holds off Justin Rose in playoff to win at Aronimink

Tiger shoots 65 in Monday finish at BMW Championship

Your new No. 1: Justin Rose becomes the 22nd golfer to be ranked best in the world

Justin Rose became world number one on Monday when he finished second at the BMW Championship where he lost a playoff with American Keegan Bradley in suburban Philadelphia.

One of the traits that makes Fowler a great golfer, is his ability to get so much distance off the tee with the unbelievable amount of hip and shoulder turn he creates.

He has the No. 1 ranking to prove it.

Rose joins Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald among those from England to hold the top spot.

Tournament organisers announced that the Englishman pulled out due to a back problem shortly ahead of the resumption of play on Monday morning, following the complete washout on Sunday.

Rose, unlike Bradley, will be among five players who can capture the US PGA $10 million season playoff crown by winning in two weeks at the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile was five shots behind after a 66 in the third round that didn't allow him to make up any ground on the lead. Team America is going to need all of its stars ready to go if they want to retain the cup on the road this year when the two sides tee it up September 28th at Le Golf National. However, he is still happy to get to the number one rank.

But bogeys on the 10th and 14th holes derailed his hopes and he ran out of holes, playing the back nine in 34. "A really solid round today is the difference of potential outcomes where I could do better".

Fowler told ESPN early this week that his injury might have been a blessing in disguise because it gave him a chance to rest during one of the most hectic times of the season.

Such was the scoring at Aronimink that Woods had a 72-hole score of 263 for the sixth time of his career.

On his putt at the last to win, he said: "I thought it was as good a putt as I've hit to win a tournament".

Woods, coming back from injury, made the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013. It's been a hard road back, and this is just. "But tomorrow or the next day, the week after, I'll look back at this and think it was an incredible moment in my career".

Jordan Spieth will not be joining him. 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. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

As for falling foul of a PGA Tour policy that requires players to play at least 25 events in a season or to add a new event that they haven't played in the last four, he sounded unconcerned.

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

Still to be determined is the penalty.

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week, " said Spieth, who shot 73 on Monday at Aronimink Golf Club to tie for 54th.
