In just a matter of a couple of strokes, Patrick Reed went from being a sure shot disaster to securing his maiden title on the US PGA Tour at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday.
The first title he has won since turning professional and joining the US PGA Tour, Reed defeated Jordan Spieth with almost an improbably birdie putt on the second hole.
Having managed only a drive on the par-4 10th that came barely a few feet from going out of bounds and stopped near some pine needle courtesy the television cables, Reed managed to somehow salvage a horrific playoff round to win their playoff finish to the Championship.
When he pulled out his seven iron, not many around the course believed he could manage to pull it off but he unleashed a baseball swing to land his second shot just a few feet from the hole and from then on, it was more less a cakewalk for Patrick Reed.
And speaking of the marvelous finish that he managed, Reed stated that without any doubt, it was the shot of his life. Speith, who had reached the reached the greens in just two strokes also mentioned that it was the best shot that he had seen in his career so far.
And Reed was immensely pleased; having managed to secure his first win, stating that it meant a lot, getting his first title under his belt. Patrick Reed, who made his third straight top three finish went on to earn a whopping $ 940,000 as well as 500 points to go higher in the FedEx Cup standings as well, something that will hold him in good stead with the last few events of the FedEx Cup coming up in a few weeks.
