Jordan Spieth doesn't qualify for Tour Championship

Though he was runner-up at the FedEx Cup playoff event, he didn't come up short in the world ranking.

The final round was pushed back from Sunday to Monday because of constant rain that led to poor course conditions.

Even with a gray sky and drizzle, the fourth round began Monday with hopes of getting in 72 holes.

The two-time FedEx Cup victor secured his spot in the Tour Championship with a top-10 performance at Aronimink.

Justin Rose became world number one on Monday when he finished second at the BMW Championship where he lost a playoff with American Keegan Bradley in suburban Philadelphia. "I'd have loved to have got there by winning, but today was fun". 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.

Rory McIlroy finished fifth at 18-under after firing a final-round 2-under 68.

Tiger Woods enjoyed a strong final round, finishing on -17 overall in a tie for sixth after a five-under-par 65.

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m.

The silver lining for Rose is that the top-two finish moved him to No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings.

A victor for the first time as a husband and a father, Bradley said he had to avoid looking at his wife Jillian and son Logan on his return trip up 18.

He will then head to Paris to play for Team USA in the Ryder Cup.

As a result, our recommended way to watch the 2018 BMW Championship live online streaming without cable is via the Hulu Live TV service.

"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.

Perhaps most important of all to Woods - the Tour Championship offers another chance for a victory, where he will need to defeat just 29 players. They are exempt from the policy by playing 25 events.
