With a Sunday round of 69 at Liberty National Golf Club, Patrick Reed claimed his seventh PGA Tour title at The Northern Trust, the opening leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.
The 29-year old Texas native signed off on a final round of five birdies against three bogeys to finish at 16-under par, one clear of playing partner Abraham Ancer, who matched Reed’s 69 to claim solo-second on 15 under.
Along with a shiny trophy, Reed earned $1,665,000 and 2,000 FedExCup points, while also picking up 76 OWGR points. He will move from 50th in the FedExCup standings to No. 2, only 206 points behind leader Brooks Koepka. He also jumped from 24th to No. 15 in the world rankings – the exact position he was ranked to start the 2019 campaign.
Runner-up Ancer earned $999,000, along with 1,200 FedExCup and 45.6 OWGR points. The second-place finish was the best of the 28-year old Ancer’s PGA Tour career, and moves the native of Mexico to 39th in the Official World Golf Rankings – marking the first time he’s cracked the top-50 in his career, and No. 8 in the FedExCup standings.
