However, Rose has climbed up to world number one for the first time following his performance in the tournament.

"That's an incredible achievement, something I'm extraordinarily proud of", the Englishman said in a greenside interview after becoming the 22nd man to hold the top spot since the rankings began in 1986.

Bradley then held his nerve at the first playoff hole, claiming victory with a par while Rose bogeyed.

Bradley, who had not won on the PGA Tour since 2012, earned his fourth career win. He gets a trip to Maui to start next year for the winners-only Sentry Tournament of Champions.

He had to rally for a 66 on Saturday, and while he was 11 shots out of the lead, another round would give him a chance to move back into the top 30, avoid violating a new policy and save the PGA Tour a headache.

"I've played a few tournaments where I've come close at the end, and just didn't quite, obviously, get the 'W, '" Woods said. The requirement can be waived if a player competes in 25 events in either the previous or current season.
