Paul Casey has withdrawn from the rain-plagued BMW Championship.

The event is the third of four tournaments in the PGA Tour's end-of-year FedEx Cup Playoffs and featured a field of 69 players from the top of the playoff standings. Rain soaked the course on Sunday, cancelling play and forcing the Monday finish.

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

The top 10 was Rose's 20th worldwide since the start of last year's FedEx Cup Playoffs (so the last 13 months), and he has four wins in there as well.

Justin Rose was left to rue a disastrous final hole at the BMW Championship that ultimately cost him the trophy but he did enjoy a suitable silver lining as he claimed the world number one spot. I don't normally love looking at leaderboards, but I watched them all day.

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.

Woods didn't win the BMW Championship, which finished Monday due to a rainy weekend, but on two separate occasions he drew within a stroke of the lead. Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under.

American 14-time major victor Tiger Woods closed with a 65, moving up to a share of sixth, one shot behind McIlroy. "It's tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams to being outside the top 100 in the world".

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m. He would most likely move to No. 1 in the world for the first time with a victory.

"So thankfully we got out here and played, and I made it to Atlanta and more now".

He is now projected to finish 31st in the FedExCup standings and miss out on the Tour Championship as only the Top 30 players advance to the season finale at Atlanta's East Lake. Spieth is the first player to violate the policy, which began a year ago.
