* – Bradley got the better of Rose in a playoff

What happened at the BMW Championship?

The third of the four FedEx Cup Play-offs finished on Monday after heavy rain washed out the whole of Sunday’s play at Aronimink.

But it was worth the wait for Keegan Bradley. He had, after all, gone 2,227 days without a win. That’s just over six years.

It was a tense finish in Pennsylvania. Bradley led Justin Rose by one standing on the 18th tee, but bogey allowed the Englishman, playing in the group behind, a chance. He left 15 feet for a birdie that would have won him the title, but it somehow stayed up.

It was a bittersweet moment for Rose. He was millimetres from winning the tournament but he knew whatever happened in the play-off, he would overtake Dustin Johnson to become the new World No. 1, and just the fourth Englishman to do so.

Rose had the honour. An ugly pull found the left-side rough, while his opponent found the middle of the fairway. Both players missed the green long and right and while Bradley cosied his ball up to the cup to leave a tap-in, Rose made a mess of his approach and, even though he was 48-for-48 with putts inside five feet all week, his subsequent par putt missed on the low side, handing the title to Bradley.

It is the American’s his first win since the 2012 Northern Trust Open, and his first since the anchored putting ban came into play. The former Ryder Cup player led the field in strokes gained-putting, largely thanks to eight birdies in a final-round 64.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
