Patrick Reed secured his first victory since last year’s Masters when he beat Mexican Abraham Ancer by one stroke at the Northern Trust in Jersey City, N.J., on Sunday.
Reed emerged on top from a packed leaderboard by carding 2-under-par 69 in the first of three PGA Tour FedEx Cup playoff events at Liberty National.
The American sank his winning putt from three feet to finish at 16-under 268, while Ancer remains in search of his PGA Tour breakthrough after also shooting 69 for second place.
Spaniard Jon Rahm, who had the outright lead at one stage, also carded 69 to tie for third with American Harold Varner III (68), two behind.
Hur captures Ladies Scottish Open title
Hur Mi-jung notched six birdies in the final 10 holes en route to an emphatic four-stroke victory in saturated conditions at the Ladies Scottish Open on Sunday.
The 29-year-old South Korean seized control with four successive birdies from the ninth hole at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick, the same course that hosted the men’s Scottish Open last month.
Hur capped off the performance in style with further birdies at the 16th and 18th holes for a five-under-par 66 on a day when club workers were kept busy squeegeeing the greens to keep the course playable in relentless rain.
Hur finished at 20-under 264 for her third LPGA victory, maintaining her record of winning once every five years, following previous successes in 2009 and 2014.
