Patrick Reed wins in Hawaii

Published:

Patrick Reed took a step closer to becoming a “top five” player when he beat  Jimmy Walker in a playoff for the $5.7 million Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Monday to clinch his fourth PGA Tour title.  

Reed, who jumped into contention by holing out from the fairway to eagle the par-4 16th, sank an 18-foot birdie putt at the par-5 last to win the PGA Tour`s opening event of the year – and join an exclusive list of players with four titles before they’ve turned 25. 

“I gave myself a chance and I was lucky enough to make it” said Reed, 24, whose win puts him in the same group as Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia as multiple champs under 25.  

“My confidence level is really high right now. At the same time, you continue to tighten up on things and you continue to move forward.” 

Reed and Walker had finished the 72 regulation holes in the elite winners-only event on 21-under-par 271, Walker closing with a four-under 69 on the hilly Plantation Course and Reed carding a 67.

Australian Jason Day finished in a tie for third at 20 under with Japan`s Hideki Matsuyama (70) and American Russell Henley (67) after equalling the tournament course record with a sizzling 62.
