Keegan Bradley Wins BMW Championship in a Playoff

Keegan Bradley Defeats Justin Rose to Win the BMW Championship

Keegan Bradley held off newly crowned World No. 1 Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to win the BMW Championship on Monday for his first PGA TOUR victory in six years.

With the runner-up finish, Justin Rose moves to the No. 2 position in the FedExCup standings. Keegan had the biggest jump of the tournament, moving from No. 52 to No. 6 in the standings entering the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club (Sept 20-23, 2018).

Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, appeared to fall one shot short, bogeying the 18th in regulation to finish at 20-under. Justin had a chance to close out the tournament in regulation but, like Keegan, bogeyed the 18th to finish in a tie for first and force a playoff. On the first hole of the playoff, Justin flared his second shot from the rough into the tent surrounding the 18th green but received a fortunate bounce, winding up in the fringe.

Keegan, playing from the middle of the fairway, hit his shot through the green into the fringe and put his third within 2 feet of the hole. Rose left his third 4-feet short and missed his par putt outside the left edge, leaving Keegan a tap-in for the win.

Bradley captured his first victory since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He moved inside the top 30 to No. 6 in the FedEx Cup standings putting him in the excellent position to make a run at the FedEx Cup. He also earned himself a trip to Maui to start next year for the winners-only Sentry Tournament of Champions.
