Live blog: Keegan Bradley beats Justin Rose in playoff to win BMW

After heavy rains prevented any golf from being played Sunday at the BMW Championship, the final round at Aronimink Golf Club was pushed to Monday.

Justin Rose, at 17 under, leads Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele by a shot. Tommy Fleetwood and Rickie Fowler are two more shots back. Jordan Spieth, at No. 31 in the FedEx Cup standings through three rounds, is a spot out of making it to East Lake.

Officials announced Sunday that if half the field does not complete play by Monday evening, the final 18 holes would be scrapped.

How much golf will players get in with more rain in the forecast? Will this be a 54-hole tournament? We’ll track the day’s happenings with our live blog:

UPDATE NO. 20 (2:37 p.m.): Justin Rose missed the green right and into the grandstands, but obviously gets a nice free drop near the green. Bradley misses a little long and then putts up to tap-in distance. Rose leaves his putt from the fairway cut about 5 feet short and misses. Bradley taps in for par and wins.

UPDATE NO. 19 (2:28 p.m.): On the 18th, the first playoff hole, Justin Rose draws his drive too much and finds the rough. Keegan Bradley hits the middle of the fairway.

UPDATE NO. 18 (2:15 p.m.): After missing the green short, Justin Rose hits a poor chip and leaves himself 15 feet for par and the win. The ball gets a lot of the hole, but lips out. Playoff!

UPDATE NO. 17 (2:02 p.m.): Keegan Bradley pulls his par putt the whole way. Bogey and he needs a bogey from Justin Rose on 18 to force a playoff.

UPDATE NO. 16 (1:58 p.m.): Justin Rose sinks a 12-footer for birdie at 17 to tie Keegan Bradley at 21 under. Bradley, meanwhile, blocked his second shot into the grandstands and just left his chip a little short of the hole.

UPDATE NO. 15 (1:48 p.m.): Billy Horschel makes par to finish at 19 under. Keegan Bradley is at 21 under, though he just pulled his drive well left at 18. Justin Rose is at 20 under, a shot back, with two holes to play.

UPDATE NO. 14 (1:44 p.m.): The lead is now two shots as Keegan Bradley make an 8-footer for birdie at the par-3 17th. It’s his third birdie in four holes. Justin Rose has a good look at birdie at 16, but Billy Horschel just missed the green at 18.

UPDATE NO. 13 (1:33 p.m.): Keegan Bradley moves to 20 under after a two-putt birdie at the par-5 16th. He’s a shot up on Justin Rose and Billy Horschel.

UPDATE NO. 12 (12:57 p.m.): Keegan Bradley gets a 17-footer for birdie to drop at No. 14 and he’s tied with Justin Rose and Billy Horschel for the lead at 19 under. Horschel, however, is in trouble at No. 15.

UPDATE NO. 11 (12:34 p.m.): Justin Rose drains a birdie at No. 12 to move to 19 under and take the outright lead again.

UPDATE NO. 10 (12:02 p.m.): Justin Rose is the latest to birdie the par-5 ninth and he moves to 18 under, tied with Horschel and Bradley for the lead.

UPDATE NO. 9 (11:35 a.m.): Keegan Bradley makes five birdies of his own on the front nine and he now is tied for the lead at 18 under with Billy Horschel.

UPDATE NO. 8 (11:22 a.m.): Billy Horschel caps the front nine with his fifth birdie of the day and he now leads outright at 18 under. Shades of 2014?

UPDATE NO. 7 (11:13 a.m.): Keegan Bradley makes a long birdie at No. 8 to join Justin Rose and Billy Horschel at 17 under.

UPDATE NO. 6 (10:43 a.m.): Make that three straight birdies for Billy Horschel, who drains an 11-footer at No. 7 to join Justin Rose in the lead at 17 under.

UPDATE NO. 5 (10:40 a.m.): Billy Horschel is now a shot back at 16 under after back-to-back birdies at Nos. 5 and 6. Keegan Bradley has also made two straight birdies at Nos. 5 and 6 to move to 16 under. He is now projected at No. 17 in FedEx Cup points.

UPDATE NO. 4 (10:20 a.m.): Keegan Bradley bogeys the fourth hole to drop back into a share of eighth. That means Jordan Spieth is projected at No. 30 in points at the moment.

UPDATE NO. 3 (10:05 a.m.): This is getting good. Justin Rose leads at 17 under, but Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood and Xander Schauffele are all within two shots of the lead.

UPDATE NO. 2 (9:54 a.m.): Right after Tiger Woods birdies No. 5 to pull within two shots, Justin Rose birdies his second hole to retake the solo lead at 17 under.

UPDATE NO. 1 (9:46 a.m.): Justin Rose bogeys his first hole, from the middle of the fairway, and he’s now in a four-way tie for the lead at 16 under with Tommy Fleetwood, Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.
