The 38-year-old Rose had grown to love suburban Philadelphia golf courses with wins at the 2010 AT&T National at Aronimink and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion.

The PGA Tour has a rule called the "strength of field regulation", which requires golfers to either play 25 events in the current or previous season or add a new event in the current season (that they did not play in the prior season). "World Number 1. Thank you so much to my family, friends & everybody that has helped me achieve this incredible goal".

Rose said it is an wonderful feeling to get to the number one rank. I'd always envisaged getting to number one by winning tournaments.

Despite claiming number one spot, the weekend was tinged with disappointment for Rose who was unable to secure victory. Woods finished Saturday with another four-under round, then waited out the rain on Sunday and teed off Monday at -12.

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.

Woods began his day with a birdie on the first hole and rolled in three more to make his turn in 4-under 31 as he climbed toward the leaders. "I'm delighted to have got to the top". "And I don't think that would have been good enough".

Then Rodrigo headed Carvajal's cross early in the 2nd half to make it 4-nil. Spain now have six points in UEFA Nations League Group 4 after two games.

The consolation prize was obvious: Rose replaced Dustin Johnson at No. 1 in the world.

"To make the Ryder Cup team and get back to East Lake, that was a pretty big goal at the beginning of the year, and to be able to accomplish that is something I'm very proud of".

Final flourish to the end of the season?

Spieth started 27th in the FedEx Cup standings and took a step backward, finishing with a 73 to tie for 55th. Rose heads into the Tour Championship second in the rankings behind American Bryson DeChambeau.

Bradley's fourth career win meant a bit more than the others - yes, even the major he won in 2011 - because he held more than a trophy and a $1.62 million check. But obviously when you're No 2 and you win, then you win. "The second last week [at the Deutsche Bank Championship] was a really good second, and this week's a really stinging feeling second".
