Watch: Justin Rose Suffers Agonising Loss But Takes World Number One Spot

Justin Rose was left to rue a disastrous final hole at the BMW Championship that ultimately cost him the trophy but he did enjoy a suitable silver lining as he claimed the world number one spot.

A relatively straightforward putt for par on the final hole of the Philadelphia course was all that stood in the way of the Englishman and the winner's spot, but the ball spun around the hole and away to force Rose into a playoff against Keegan Bradley.

Rose and Bradley returned to the 18th tee for the playoff and once again, the 38-year-old fluffed his putt.

Rose is the fourth English player to become world No 1 and can look forward to an exciting Ryder Cup later this month. As for Bradley, this was his first PGA victory in six years and he looked elated to finally get over the line once more.
