Tiger Woods shot a 5-under-par 65 in the rain-delayed final round of the BMW Championship on Monday to finish the tournament at 17 under and qualify for next week’s Tour Championship.
Woods began the final round at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., five shots off the lead of England’s Justin Rose.
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. However, he bogeyed No. 10 before gaining shots at Nos. 11 and 13. Within two of the lead, he put his tee shot in a green-side bunker at the par-3 14th hole and effectively ended his shot at winning when his par put slid right of the hole.
Woods did make birdie at No. 16 before closing out with a pair of pars. He finished in a tie for sixth, three strokes back of the playoff between Justin Rose and Keegan Bradley, which Bradley won.
After being tied for the lead with an opening-round 62 on Thursday, Woods shot 70 and 66 over the next two days to put himself behind a deep pack of players atop the leaderboard.
