Mixed feelings for Justin Rose after play-off defeat


On Monday at the Aronimink Golf Club, the 26-year-old Japanese faded with a final-round 69 to finish 15th at the BMW Championship while American Keegan Bradley beat England's Justin Rose on the first playoff hole for his first PGA Tour victory in six years. Rose chose to putt his ball and left himself a knee-knocking five-footer, which he missed, allowing Bradley to tap in for the victory.

The silver lining for Rose is that the top-two finish moved him to No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings. He opened with three straight rounds of 4-under 66 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., then closed Monday with a 67 to move up two spots to No. 28 and earn a spot in the all-important Tour Championship, which will be played September 20-23 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. Players are also competing for part of a $9 million purse. Spieth started at 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th.

On the 221-yard par-3 14th, Harman hit the green off the tee but had a three-putt after missing a putt from 6-feet for a par and finished with a bogey.

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. If he doesn't qualify, Spieth would violate a recent policy requiring PGA Tour members to play a tournament they haven't been to in the last four years.

Bradley and Rose finished a shot ahead of Schauffele, who shot 67, and former FedEx Cup victor Billy Horschel, who signed for a 64. I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one (new event) every year.
