Reed flies the flag at Liberty

Reed flies the flag at Liberty

Patrick Reed, the self-styled Captain America of golf, completed victory in The Northern Trust at Liberty National GC, the first of this year's FedEx Cup Play-Offs.

The win was the seventh in the 29-year-old's career, but his first since he won the green jacket at Augusta National last April.

He completed it in fine style, heading into the final round with the lead, but seeing a succession of players attack him throughout the final afternoon.

He struggled with his own form on the front nine, swapping three birdies and three bogeys, but on the way home he went error-free, ticked two birdies and overhauled the chasing pack.

His final total of 16-under 268 left him one shot clear of Abraham Ancer, with Harold Varner III and Jon Rahm tied for this.

"I think the biggest thing was drawing on my past wins," Reed said of the final day drama. "I was drawing on the win in this tournament (at a different venue) in 2016 and also drawing on the moments at Augusta when I had the lead and watched the lead shrink or go away.

"Being able to still sit in there and remind yourself that, hey, I have these holes left that the guys are birdieing. To be able to go into that mentality and attack the holes that I knew were gettable, to try to make it as stress-free as possible on the holes I knew were the hard ones.

"I have felt like I've been playing well all year. To come out and get the W this week is important. I've climbed up the board quickly, now second in the rankings. I'll rest up tomorrow, start playing aggressive again and try to get up there as high as I can going into East Lake and the Tour Championship."

Reed will play this week in the BMW Championship at Medinah before heading to the final event of the season in Georgia when the field will start with staggered scoring based on their position in the rankings ahead of the first round.

"It definitely frees me up, knowing that I'm going to be at East Lake," he said. "But at the end of the day, you know, we still have two weeks. Next week we still have a lot of points available to go out and play well. Now with the staggered start at East Lake, you want to put yourself in the best position you can going into East Lake."

Reed is 22/1 to win the BMW Championship.
