Bradley wins BMW Championship, Tiger falls short once more

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.

Justin Rose holds the 54-hole lead by 1 shot over Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.

The rain-plagued event concluded Monday and Woods made another run at his 80th PGA Tour title, coming up three shots short of a playoff won by Keegan Bradley. He made that for par to finish the third round in sixth place, three shots out of the lead.

"If it were to stop raining right now we might be able to resume play so we are going out to assess the golf course right now but then I have been looking at it since about 4:45 this morning and it's pretty bad".

However, entering the final round five strokes back meant Tiger would likely need to go bogey-free on Monday, which went out the window with a dropped shot on No. 10.

Bradley carded a closing six-under-par 64 and hardly put a foot wrong until he bogeyed the final hole, a mistake that looked like costing him victory. Certainly feeling like he needed a hero effort at this time, he went the opposite way on his second shot, with his ball finding the greenside grandstand. An indifferent pitch left 15 feet for par, and Rose's effort lipped out.

Bradley two-putted from just off the green for the victory, which sees him jump to 6th in the FedEx Cup standings.

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.

"A lot has happened to me over these six years", Bradley said.

"I just wish I could have enjoyed the moment maybe, and this just slightly dampens it. I'd hate to round off the season with three seconds, but that could be good enough next week, you just never know". It was the first time he had won since becoming a father. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth. This year he did not add a new event, and the Ryder Cup - which counts - will give him just 24. "It was hard to get ready to play because I was like, 'Man, if they call it, I'm good.' But I was only three back".

"I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year, but it's kind of tough", Spieth said.
