Justin Rose savours world No 1 status after runner-up finish

Share

To bogey the 72nd hole and to get into a play-off is obviously nothing to be happy about, but the putt I had to win was the best putt I've ever hit to try and win a tournament. Rose ascended to the No. 1 ranking in the Official World Golf Rankings and became just the 22nd golfer in history to do so.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship victor, captured his fourth PGA Tour title and won for the first time since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in 2012. It was the first time he had won since becoming a father.

Rory McIlroy finished fifth at 18-under after firing a final-round 2-under 68. Switching his driver shaft going into the Northern Trust was the last piece of the equipment puzzle, he said.

The pair finished one shot ahead of Americans Xander Schauffele and Billy Horschel. "I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while". It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams, to outside the top 100 in the world. But guaranteeing a top 30 position in the final FedEx Cup points rankings, Bradley secures his spot in the field at the major championships in 2019, something the former college golfer at St. John's has struggled with ever since his exemption for winning the 2011 PGA Championship expired.

However, entering the final round five strokes back meant Tiger would likely need to go bogey-free on Monday, which went out the window with a dropped shot on No. 10.

Tee times slowly got pushed back from 9am, to noon, then 1pm. He had his fourth back surgery in April of last year, and at this time last year he had just been cleared to chip and putt. "But at the end of the season here, to say that I've made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment".

As Bradley thrust his arms into the air, his family joined him in celebration on the green.

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 now faces potential sanctions from the PGA Tour for failing to play 25 events in the 2017-18 season.

Still to be determined is the penalty.

Schauffele was considered a top contender to be US Ryder Cup leader Jim Furyk's captain's choice final pick. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began previous year.
