The day belonged to Keegan Bradley, who won his first title in six years and he won the play-off against Justin Rose, whose consolation was that his second place was still good enough to make him No. 1 in the world on the Official World Golf Rankings.

Philadelphia: Tiger Woods came within one shot of the lead at one stage, but in the end finished three behind and was sixth at the BMW Championships, but he still had one more chance to get himself a win this season.
 
Woods, 4-under through the front nine, finished with three more birdies against two bogeys on back nine for a 65 that gave him a total of 17-under and T-6th. But he stayed on for the Tour Championships at East Lake, where only the Top-30 play.
Woods is now 20th in the FedExCup Playoffs standings after entering the tournament ranked 25th.

Jordan Spieth will not be at the Tour Championships for the first time. Spieth started at 27th in the FedExCup standings and moved backwards finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th and fell out of the top 30.

Less than a week ago, Woods was named as a captain’s pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team and now he has the opportunity to win a third FedExCup title in two weeks. It will be Tiger’s first appearance at Tour Championships since 2013.

 “At the end of the season here to say that I made it back to the TOUR Championship after what I’ve been through is a pretty good accomplishment,” said Woods.
