The duo had finished tied for regulation on 20 under par.

By qualifying for the Tour Championship for a third straight season, Woodland guarantees himself entry into many of golf's biggest championships during the 2018-19 season.

"It was really kind of unusual because I don't normally look at leaderboards, but I looked all day and I felt so solid", Bradley said. The Englishman could become the world number one with a victory, even if the event were declared complete after three rounds.

Two other events have finished beyond the weekend, including Australia's Jason Day and Swede Alex Noren in a Monday playoff at Torrey Pines and American Troy Merritt winning July's Barbasol Championship in Kentucky on a Monday. And that's so huge for a player where I am at this point because then I can play my way back into the top 50.

Storms sweeping across the East Coast of the USA wreaked havoc at the Aronimink Golf Club near Philadelphia with a soaked golf course finally being deemed unfit for Sunday play soon after 2pm local time.

Two back of the leaders at -17, Woods couldn't sink an eight-foot birdie putt on 17 that would have drawn him back within a stroke of the lead. He found a bunker on the par-3 14th for another bogey.

Cameron Smith is ecstatic at securing a Tour Championship debut and will lead the Australian charge at the FedExCup finale courtesy of his hot start to the PGA Tour's $US67 million ($A93 million) playoffs.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland ended up fifth at 18 under after a 68 in which he hit the ball well from tee to green but continually missed makeable putts. Tiger Woods, Webb Simpson and Tony Finau all shot 65 to push into the top 10, but they were simply not close enough.

No one needs to play Monday as much as Spieth. I'm very proud of it, it's been a good stretch of golf. He had his fourth back surgery in April of last year, and at this time last year he had just been cleared to chip and putt. Woods, coming back from injury, made the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013.

The first tee time was scheduled for 7:30 a.m.

Spieth did not add a new event, and he has only played in 23 tournaments this season.

Spieth began the year ranked second in the world but has dropped to 10th after failing to win and posting just five top-10 finishes. "This is one of our tougher tests but it just wasn't playing that way this year, it was just soft and it was hot early in the week, the ball was flying, guys were hitting driver-wedge every hole".
