Who Won The 2018 BMW Championship?

PA NEWTOWN SQUARE — For his first PGA Tour triumph in six years, Keegan Bradley defeated Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to win the rain-drenched BMW Championship on Monday.

Final standings for the BMW Championship: Prize payments and leaderboard

Keegan Bradley sits in the lead of the final leaderboard for the 2018 BMW Championship after defeating Justin Rose in a playoff to earn his first PGA Tour victory in six years at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

Both players concluded Monday’s regular round at 20-under 260, and Bradley won thanks to a par on the opening hole of the playoff.

After Friday’s competition, Xander Schauffele leads the BMW Championship for 2018

Xander Schauffele fired a six-under 64 on Friday at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, to take a two-shot lead in the 2018 BMW Championship.

The overall score for Schauffele, who carded an equally outstanding 63 in Round 1, is 13. Through 36 holes, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Keegan Bradley, and Alex Noren are tied for third place at 10 under while Justin Rose is two shots back at 11 under.

Tiger Woods (-8) and Rory McIlroy (-9) are still in the running for the FedEx Cup Playoffs championship after failing to repeat their opening-round success on Thursday.

With a missed cut in the Northern Trust and a 49th-place finish in the Dell Technologies Championship, Schauffele had a difficult start to the PGA Tour postseason. He was no longer in the top-30 cutoff for the Tour Championship, but if he were to win, he would move up to sixth.

In the second round, the 24-year-old defending Tour Championship champion recorded seven birdies and one bogey. He is attempting to win a chance to defend his title in the season finale as well as a spot on the American Ryder Cup team.

Reporters were informed by Schauffelet that “obviously I thought a lot more about it the past couple of weeks.” “You see, I feel like the only way I would even be taken into consideration is if I succeed. Currently, Tony [Finau] is unquestionably the man. Likewise, he just shot 64. Anyone else attempting to join that squad finds it difficult to deal with him. Hats off to him for playing so brilliantly, you know.”

Rose moved up the leaderboard on Friday by making seven birdies in a bogey-free round. The 2016 Olympic gold medallist, who shot four consecutive rounds of 70 or better to place second in the Dell Technologies Championship last week, continues a great run of form.

The lone two-time FedEx Cup champion, Woods, made headlines with his outstanding performance on Thursday.

However, with three birdies and three bogeys in the second round, he was unable to perform at the same level. Although he continued to hit the ball well, connecting on 78.6 percent of fairways and 77.8 percent of greens, his putting failed miserably to quell talk about the return of his Scotty Cameron putter.

Woods is far from secure in terms of securing a top-30 position as he opened the week 25th in the playoff standings. If he wants to compete for the championship in two weeks, he cannot afford to fall much further behind the pack during the next several days.

Prior to Saturday’s competition, he is one of 18 golfers who are within five shots of Schauffele’s lead. The conclusion at Aronimink should be enjoyable.

Rain delays the 2018 BMW Championship, but Keegan Bradley wins it in a playoff.

PA’s Newtown Square – Keegan Bradley won the penultimate leg of the FedEx Cup at Aronimink on a soggy Monday after play was postponed on Sunday due to strong, continuous rains in the Philadelphia region. The two played the 18th hole again after finishing regulation play tied with Justin Rose. The 32-year-old American’s triumph (-20) marked his first in six years. Bradley moved up 46 spots to number 6 in the FedEx Cup standings before the Tour Championship at East Lake thanks to the victory.

The top spot in the rankings, held by Bryson DeChambeau, could not be displaced this week, but there was a lot of competition for spots within the top 30. Notably, Tiger Woods made the year-end tournament about a year after being given the all-clear to hit chips and pitches following his spinal fusion, while Jordan Spieth finished in the 31st slot and lost out on the Tour Championship for the first time. Woods, who will start the Tour Championship in the 20th spot, had a strong opening round on Thursday, seizing the lead right away and keeping the crowd interested until the very end. Notably, Woods also placed his renowned Scotty Cameron putter, which he used for 13 of his 14 major championship wins, back in the bag this week.

Xander Schauffele, who finished T3 one back at -19, was another finisher of note during the week. On the strength of his opening 63-64 and two weekend 67s, he came close to winning the competition, but his performance was still excellent enough to bring him up to position 18 in the FedEx Cup standings. Billy Horschel, who frequently charges late in the season, finished third as well.

Keegan Bradley led the field in strokes gained putting this week, despite the fact that ball striking has never been a problem for him. Justin Rose rose to the top of the world rankings for the first time in his career despite losing in a playoff. A win at the Tour Championship would put him in charge of his own destiny as he rose to second in the FedEx Cup standings, solidifying his place among the top 5. At the season-ending competition, Xander Schauffele will make his defense on September 20 at East Lake in Atlanta.
