Reed wins Northern Trust for first victory since 2018 Masters

Reed shot 67 in Round 3

Reed shot 67 in Round 3

Four golfers from outside the top 70 at the start of this week secured places in the BMW Championship. However, Woods shot a painful 75 on Thursday and withdrew on Friday.

He is winless in the last 16 months dating to the 2018 Masters.

Reed finished at 16-under 268 and won for the seventh time in his career on the PGA Tour.

Both men scored two-under-par 69s, with Reed finishing the tournament on 16 under par.

He jumps from 50th in the FedEx Cup Standings to 2nd, only 502 points behind Brooks Koepka.

Ancer played solidly with a bogey-free golf from the 7th tee in and birdies on the 16th and 17 gave him hope that he could force a playoff. He poured in an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 3, used his short game to secure birdies on the par 5s and finished with a wedge to 10 feet for his fifth birdie on No. 17. The third place finish lifted him from 102nd in the FedEx Cup Standings all the way to 29th (the biggest jump this weekend), securing a spot at the BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club, in IL.

Reed was relieved. He said. "Been a little too long honestly", said Reed, who started the day with a one-shot lead. He struggled after winning The Masters. "I nearly felt like I pressed harder, and worked harder and tried harder".

"I kind of went the wrong direction and that's why I felt like I needed the break".

After a miserable run of form earlier in the year he chose to take a proper break in May. "I come back and I'm hitting the ball farther". "I'm trying not to think about that that much". He's now converted five of his seven 54-hole leads into victories. However, Ancer should be consoled by his best ever PGA Tour finish. He wrapped up a spot on the global team for the Presidents Cup, making him the first Mexican in the event. "Making it into the Tour Championship is huge".

"Next year will be easier as I now know which courses I should play on and which ones I need to take off my schedule", he said. "Just to be back and to feel like I've been playing some solid golf and to finally have it pay off".

"I'm really happy that I kept my card but the season ended sooner than expected". He's certain to make the Tour Championship. He hit only two of his first seven greens in regulation.

Captain Catriona Matthew will announce her four picks, live on Sky Sports Golf and Sky Sports News, at 2pm BST on Monday, 12th August, from Gleneagles with the USA team to be confirmed after the CP Women's Open next week. It's not fun, you know what I mean?

Poulter said: "There are a few players that continually disrespect their fellow pros and continue to break the rules without a conscience". You talk about "protecting the field", then protect it by penalising/disqualifying this type of behaviour. This is routinely ignored and there are now growing calls within the game for the matter to be addressed. His odds of the $15 million prize increased greatly.

But after lurching to the turn in five-over 41, then dropping another shot at the 10th to go six-over for the day, he birdied four of his last six holes to close with a two-over 73 and share 52nd on three-under. Jutanugarn had a 71. Scotland's Carly Booth finished joint ninth on 10 under but for two late bogey's would have been higher up the leaderboard.

He will be the first Mexican-born player to compete in the Cup, dating back to 1994. She joins England's Hull and Hall, Spain's Azahara Munoz, Caroline Masson of Germany, Swedish pair Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall and Spain's Carlota Ciganda.
