  • Casey withdraws after 3rd round of BMW Championship

Schauffele bogeyed the 54th hole when he missed a 10-foot putt to fall out of a tie for the lead. Because he didn't add to his schedule a tournament he had not played in the last four years, he is in violation of the PGA Tour's scheduling policy.

Two back of the leaders at -17, Woods couldn't sink an eight-foot birdie putt on 17 that would have drawn him back within a stroke of the lead.

"I now have another string to the bow; if you're trying to sum up my career in three sentences - world number one would be right up there with the other achievements".

"I would love to have got there by winning".

Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, thrust his arms toward the gray sky and drizzle in celebration and waved his family onto the 18th hole.

If that is not possible, the event will be called off after 54 holes, giving Rose victory and seeing the projected top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings progress to the Tour Championship.

"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 afternoon in the media center, sitting next to both the BMW Championship trophy and the FedExCup. "It made me feel calm, which is rare".

The tournament had been due to finish on Sunday but was postponed until Monday following persistent rain.

"To make the Ryder Cup team and get back to East Lake, that was a pretty big task at the beginning of the year and to be able to accomplish that is something I'm very proud of, " Woods said.

For the sixth time in his career, Woods shot 263 or better. Only the top 30 in the standings qualified for the year-end Tour Championship, which will be played from September 20-23 at East Lake.

Among them is 2015 FedEx champion Jordan Spieth, who would end up 31st in the standings and miss the Tour Championship for the first time since turning pro and playing a full season in 2013. He fell out of the top 30 and will miss the Tour Championship for the first time.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth.
