Fourth-ranked Rose, who lipped out a 15-foot par putt on the 18th, needed a victory or a solo second-place finish behind anyone but American Justin Thomas to claim the number one ranking.

Rose was still excited at his ranking feat despite the defeat.

"Delighted to be world number one. It's boyhood dreams," Rose said. "That's an amazing achievement. It's something I'm extrordinarily proud of."

This is Bradley's first title since giving up the controversial belly putter.

"A lot has happened to me over these six years," Bradley said.

"The belly putter was a tougher transition than I thought, and I kind of fell off the radar there for a little while."

"It has been tough to go from being on Ryder Cup teams, being on Presidents Cup teams, to outside the top 100 in the world. That was difficult."

"It's so gratifying to get what comes with hard work. Sometimes you never even get it. To be back here and win this tournament is just incredible."

Rose will contend in the US PGA's $10 million season playoff in two weeks at the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta.

"I'd love to go to the Tour Championship winning because obviously I want to get to number one by winning golf tournaments, but today was fun," Rose said.

"I birdied 16 and 17. I knew Keegan was ahead of me doing the same thing, so I kind of was responding to that. Hit a great putt in regulation to (try and) win it, but then it was a poor playoff putt from me."

Tiger Woods played a closing round of 65 for a total 263 to finish T6 and secure one of the thirty places in the playoff.

"I played a few tournaments now where I was close at the end and at the end of the season here to say that I made it back to the Tour Championship after what I've been through is a pretty good accomplishment," Woods said.

"To have a chance to win again this year, it's a very positive feeling. If I had made a few more putts this week could have been a different deal coming down the stretch."

Jordan Spieth posted a 73 to finish T55, and didn't qualify to the Tour Championship, as a result he may incur a $20,000 fine for not playing the minimum 25 tour events.

"I assume it will either be a fine or I'm adding some events in the fall," Spieth said. "I don't know if that counts."

"If it becomes a situation, then I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on and try and add one every year but it's kind of tough."
