Tiger shoots 65 in Monday finish at BMW Championship

Adjust Comment Print

Jim Furyk's final Ryder Cup captain's pick was set to be made Monday, but the delayed finish of the BMW pushed the announcement to Tuesday. Rose, Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele, the lead group, are scheduled to tee off at 9:20 am EST.

He ended up finishing three strokes behind Keegan Bradley, who defeated Justin Rose in a one-hole, sudden-death playoff, but there's still success for Woods to build on ... and problems to clean up.

If the event is shortened, Rose would be the victor and full World Ranking points, FedEx points and prize money would be allotted to the field. Rain soaked the course on Sunday, cancelling play and forcing the Monday finish.

Tiger Woods walks the ninth hole during the first round of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on May 3, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. There are no guarantees that the waterlogged course will be playable, meaning the event may be reduced to 54 holes, which Rose would win with a 17-under-par total of 193. 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. Otherwise, all signs point to Finau, who was six shots out of the lead.

"I just wish I could have enjoyed the moment maybe, and this just slightly dampens it".

Even though Woods prefers tougher conditions this is the second time over the last month he's almost gotten it done in a birdie-fest, including the PGA Championship at Bellerive.

Woods, who is projected to rise to No. 21 in the world, would have needed a final-round 62 to be part of the playoff. I'm not sure. I talked to the tour a little while back and I didn't really think much of it and it becomes a situation then. Switching his driver shaft going into the Northern Trust was the last piece of the equipment puzzle, he said.

"But at the end of the season, to say that I made it to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment", Woods added.

By virtue of his return to East Lake - his first trip since 2013 - Bradley will once again reap the benefits of being a top-30 player on Tour. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began past year.

That means he will have played only 24 tournaments this year, which includes the Ryder Cup. They are exempt from the policy by playing 25 events.
