Casey was No. 17 in the FedEx Cup and already assured of being among the top 30 who advance to the Tour Championship on September 20 in Atlanta. "Was riding some momentum (after the Dell Technologies Championship) but all in all, just game kind of got a little off".

Former world number one Spieth finished tied-12th at the Dell Technologies Championship but failed to improve on that in hard conditions at the BMW Championship. I'd always envisaged getting to number one by winning tournaments.

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.

Speaking about his new ranking, he added: "That's obviously boyhood dream stuff, something I'm incredibly proud of".

Justin Rose has won PGA Tour on nine occasions. "I'm delighted to get to the top", he told Sky Sports.

"To say that I made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods said. "I'm not sure", said Spieth.

It was incredible there was any play possible at all in Philadelphia, with an inch of rain overnight saturating the course, but officials deemed that play was possible and the first groups took to the course just after 7.30am local time.

He is on the brink of becoming world No 1 for the first time in his 20-year career after play was washed out at the BMW Championship in Pennsylvania.

The processor and graphics chips are set to the stay the same as its predecessor, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 and Adreno 630. When pressed on why said jack not included, Pei gave similar answers to those given by Apple, Razer, and others .

But he missed the green on 10 and made bogey.

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. He was steady throughout the cold and drizzly final round and had a one-stroke lead when he got to the 18th tee.

They will try again on Monday but with a similarly dire forecast and a saturated course that simply can not take any more punishment, there is every chance the event will be reduced to 54 holes.

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

By virtue of his return to East Lake - his first trip since 2013 - Bradley will once again reap the benefits of being a top-30 player on Tour.

Jordan Spieth reached No. 1 in the world for the first time with a runner-up finish in the 2015 PGA Championship.

"I assume it will either be a fine or I m adding some events in the fall", Spieth said.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this year, which includes the Ryder Cup. As the ninth-ranked golfer in the world, he is one of the top players on tour week to week when healthy, so he was a favorite to be the overall playoff champ if he had played in all the events. He joins eight other players in the last 20 years to win a major and a World Golf Championship and reach No. 1 in the world.
