Johnson Wins BMW Championship
American Zach Johnson shot a final-round 65 to win the BMW Championship and move into the top five in the race for the season-ending FedEx Cup.
Johnson ended on 16 under, finished two ahead of Nick Watney and three better than third-round leader Jim Furyk. Tiger Woods was left seven adrift.
Woods and Johnson are amongst the five who can win the $10m (£6.3m) FedEx Cup with victory in Atlanta next weekend.
Luke Donald finished tied for fourth to reach the final event at East Lake, the Englishman following his third-round 67 with a 66 in Monday's rain-delayed final round to climb from 54th to 29th in the FedEx Cup standings, with 30 men moving on to the Tour Championship.
Johnson, the 2007 Masters champion, picked up the $1.44m (£900,000) top prize and his 10th career title.
Furyk, who became only the sixth player to card a sub-60 round when he fired a second-round 59, has now squandered his last six 54-hole leads.
