Keegan Bradley Steals BMW Championship on Justin Rose Lip-Outs
American Keegan Bradley defeated Englishman Justin Rose in a playoff for the BMW Championship on Monday, securing his first win in six years -- and he did it after sending his approach into the grandstands on 18.
How It Went Down (And How It Didn't Go Down)
After slicing his second shot into the patrons and bogeying the 18th hole, Bradley entered the clubhouse at 20-under, just one stroke behind the leader (Justin Rose). A few minutes later, Rose put his 18th tee shot in the rough, pitched out to the fairway, then left his approach 15-feet short for the winning par putt... and it lipped out.
Replaying Hole 18 for the playoff, Rose's five-footer lipped out again, leaving Bradley a tap-in par putt to steal the win. Despite finishing runner-up, Rose climbed to the new No. 1 in the world rankings.
Other Scores: Billy Horschel (-19), Xander Schauffele (-19), Rory McIlroy (-18), Tiger Woods (-17)
