How Much Does the Winner Make — BMW Championship Purse

"I was in control of my own destiny and didn't have it this week", said United States Ryder Cup team member Spieth.

Speaking straight after the play-off, Rose told Sky Sports: "I'm disappointed right now".

The Texan, without a win this season, shot a one-over 71 in Philadelphia on Friday and the decision to move the final round to Monday, rather than stop it at 54 holes due to inclement weather, offered him another chance to climb the FedEx Cup playoff rankings. He also got to give his young son Logan a victory toss in the air on the 18th green for the first time.

However, a steady round proved not enough around a soaked Aronimink, with McIlroy's two-under 68 bettered by Rose, who shot a three-under 67, and eventual victor Bradley, whose six-under 64 took him into a play-off with the Englishman.

Rose bogeyed the par-four 18th to hand the 32-year-old American his fourth PGA Tour win. It was glue coming out of that fringe there and then I under-read the putt a little bit.

It was awesome play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times.

"I felt so calm out there today", he told the Golf Channel. "World Number 1. Thank you so much to my family, friends & everybody that has helped me achieve this incredible goal".

Intensifying Hurricane Florence could strike USA southeast
Florence is approximately 410 miles south of Bermuda and 975 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina , as of 5 a.m. Tropical storm force winds could begin along the coast Wednesday evening and have the potential to impact the Triangle.

But Rose settled for second-best on the day by making a bogey to Bradley's par on the first play-off hole, the par-4 18th.

Tiger Woods, a 14-time major champion in his comeback season from spinal fusion, produced a closing 65 to share sixth place on 263 and ensure himself a spot in the 30-man finale. "And I don't think that would have been good enough".

Woods took away any suspense about getting back to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

"A lot has happened to me over these six years", he added. These are two of the four tournaments for the FedEx Cup with the final competition taking place next weekend which sees the top 30 take part.

Spieth failed to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship next week after finishing tied for 55th at the BMW Championship and slipping from 27th to 31st in the FedExCup standings.

The top five players heading into next week's tournament at East Lake will have the opportunity to win the FedEx Cup outright by winning the Tour Championship.

The pair finished one shot ahead of Xander Schauffele (67) and Billy Horschel (64).
