The Northern Trust was the first of the three FedExCup playoff events, and Reed's victory in New Jersey propelled him from 50th to second in the FedExCup rankings - with just Brooks Koepka ahead of him now.
It might have taken a while for Patrick Reed to get past his Masters hangover, but 16 months after he slipped on his green jacket for his lone major championship victory, it seems like the feisty Texan is back.
"Captain America" Patrick Reed got his first win on the PGA Tour since the 2018 Masters, and it couldn't have come at a better time.
He shot a final round 2-under 69 and finished 8-under for the tournament, in a tie for 21st.
After sinking his putt on 18 for the win Reed said "It's been a little too long!" "But what better place to do it than here". The last Presidents Cup was at Liberty National two years ago.

Reed is No. 50 in the FedEx Cup and trying to extend his streak of making the Tour Championship every year since 2014. As Pepperell said, handing out fines is meaningless to tour players who earn millions of dollars in prize money and sponsorship deals. He's only moved up five spots in the standings (17-12) and isn't an automatic choice as only the top eight make it by virtue of their place.
For his career, Reed has now won seven PGA Tour events.

Ancer felt like a victor when it was over. Birdies at the 12th and 13th moved Rahm to 16-under, but he faded with bogeys at the 14th and 15th. He then struck a glorious approach to four feet at the 16th, and holed the birdie putt to put him back in front, where he remained. However, Ancer should be consoled by his best ever PGA Tour finish.
That was enough to send him from No. 67 to No. 8, with more perks than he could count. And he jumps from 67th in the FedEx Cup Standings all the way to 8th, securing a spot at the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta in two weeks, the first spot for a Mexican born player in the twelve year history of the FedEx Cup.
