Justin Rose is the new World No 1

Justin Rose is the new World No 1

And he will face a possible penalty from the PGA Tour for failing to play enough events this year as part of its field enhancement criteria.

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

Woods has been in the hunt at majors, finishing second at last month s PGA Championship and leading on Sunday in July s British Open, but still seeks his first win in more than five years.

Rose got a lucky break in the playoff when his approach shot landed in a skybox but ricocheted back towards the hole and stopped just off the green.

"It's so great, it took a lot of hard work", an emotional Bradley said after securing his fourth PGA Tour victory.

Getty Keegan Bradley plays a shot from the bunker on the third hole during the weather-delayed final round of the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club on September 10, 2018 in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under.

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

Spieth, 25, came into the week in the top 30 in points but couldn't recover from a second-round 71 in which he was one of just six players to shoot over par.

"But at the end of the season, to say that I made it to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods added.

Jordan Spieth insisted he will accept his punishment from the PGA Tour if they decide he has breached regulations by failing to play in the required number of tournaments this season.

Spieth and Emiliano Grillo were the only two players who fell out of the top 30. This year he did not add a new event, and the Ryder Cup - which counts - will give him just 24.

The top 30 in the standings after this event earned spots in the season-ending Tour Championship, to be played September 20-23 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
