The rise of Justin Rose to No

The rise of Justin Rose to No

A "DELIGHTED" JUSTIN Rose assured the world number one ranking for the first time in his career on Monday with a solo runner-up finish at the PGA BMW Championship. Therefore, he became the 22nd player to reach the numero uno spot since the ranking began in 1986.

Bradley, who shot a final round 6-under 64 to finish at 20-under par, thrust his arms toward the grey sky and drizzle in celebration and waved his family onto the 18th hole.

Casey cited back pain for pulling out of the FedEx Cup playoff event at Aronimink on Monday morning.

There was disappointment too for Rose, whose chip shot came up woefully short, and when his putt agonisingly lipped out, he and Bradley headed back down the 18th.

"To get to world No 1 is unbelievable, and I can say now in my career I've been the best player in the world", said Rose afterwards. 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.

Three-time major victor and former world number one Jordan Spieth carded a three-over 73 for his final round to finish tied-55th and subsequently drop from 27th in FedEx Cup points to 31st, meaning he will miss out on the Tour Championship for the first time since turning pro.

Apple to Kick Off Product Blitz With iPhone Xs Line
Accordingly, the 6.1-inch version among the new Apple smartphones will not be called iPhone XS Light, but iPhone XC . Another leak had mentioned that the cheaper iPhone model, with the 6.1-inch LCD display, could be called iPhone Xc .

"A lot has happened to me over these six years", Bradley said.

As usual, it crowded around Tiger Woods. He obviously made his schedule around the intended reality that he would both make it to the Tour Championship and be on the Ryder Cup team. "I had a hard time seeing my lines, and consequently, I didn't make anything". Spieth started at 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th. However in recent years the Englishman won his first major, the 2013 US Open, as well as gold at the Rio Olympic Games and he has nine PGA Tour wins to his name.

Marc Leishman is the only other Australian to advance to the Tour Championship and although he is 29th on point he remains upbeat about his chances.

The Ryder Cup at the end of the month would have counted as Spieth's 25th official start, but the showdown in Paris will now be his 24th and leaves him facing the prospect of a large fine or even a suspension.

"No 2 is an incredible spot to be in, and it's a week where there are many scenarios in play", he said.

By this stage Bradley was making his charge at 18-under for the tournament, while playing partner Rose was stretching away at the same mark and Xander Schauffele had moved one ahead.
