Jordan Spieth doesn't qualify for Tour Championship

Justin Rose didn't win the 2018 BMW Championship - in fact, he lost in heartbreaking fashion during a sudden death playoff - but he did achieve something maybe even bigger on Monday at Aronimink.

Bradley parred the first extra hole to edge Englishman Rose after the pair had finished regulation at 20-under-par 260 at waterlogged Aronimink. Bradley made three more birdies on the back nine to head to the 18th tee tied for the lead with Rose.

Rory McIlroy's BMW Championship charge was washed away by the Pennsylvania rain as he finished two shots off eventual victor Keegan Bradley in fifth at Aronimink Golf Club.

The win lifted Casey to 12th in the world rankings, although he has since slipped to 16th and has not managed a top-20 finish on the PGA Tour since being runner-up to Bubba Watson at the Travelers Championship in June.

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

Against tough competition from top to bottom, and with a trip to the FedEx Cup finale on the line, Keegan Bradley didn't just contend - he defeated the very best the world has to offer, literally.

Kim observed the event along with Chinese leader Xi Jinping's envoy Li Zhanshu, but he did not deliver a speech to the public. It will also allow the Kremlin to discuss the dramatic rapprochement between Trump and Kim Jong-un with key regional players.

"Truthfully I was really fixated on making the Tour Championship, and I kind of knew if we didn't play today, I was in it", he said Monday, sitting next to both the BMW Championship trophy and the FedExCup.

Americans Xander Schauffele (67) and Billy Horschel (64) shared third place one shot off the pace. In 2011 Bradley earned his first victory at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and would later go on to capture his first major at the 2011 PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods, Webb Simpson and Scott Piercy tee off at 8:40 am EST.

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.

Tiger Woods also qualified for the Tour Championship following his sixth-place finish at the BMW Championship. "I'm delighted to have got to the top".

"I've won before, and I win and I finish, and I go home, just me", Bradley said. The Ryder Cup will make 24, but he now has no chance at 25.
