Patrick Reed wins Northern Trust after eventful finale

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.
Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters victor, also affectionately known as Captain America for his exploits in the Ryder Cup, or because he still wears the gear on the PGA, seems finally to have gotten over the hangover from his lone major victory.
"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. His odds of winning the $15 million prize are greatly increased.
For much of the summer Reed's position on this year's Presidents Cup team wasn't really an issue as he struggled early in the season and he began this week's The Northern Trust 17th on the USA points list, with next week's deadline to finish inside the top 8 (Aug. 18) and automatically qualify looming.
Reed made his three-footer on the 18th to secure victory, with Ancer settling for second.
"It was more frustration and questioning going on because I felt like I was doing a lot of things really well, " said Reed, 29, who now has seven PGA Tour victories.
"It's been a little too long", said Reed, whose last victory was the 2018 Masters.
He finished at 16-under 268 and won for the seventh time in his career on the PGA Tour. The top eight players are automatic qualifiers.
Tiger Woods, who had taken Reed under his wing when he served as an assistant at the 2016 Ryder Cup and 2017 Presidents Cup, tweeted his congratulations by saying, "At worst you have assured yourself a captain's pick for next year's Presidents Cup". He also played bogey-free over the final 12 holes, and his birdie on the 17th gave him hope. 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.
Ancer's performance - his best finish on the PGA Tour bumped him from 67th in the playoff standings to eighth.
That was enough to send him from No. 67 to No. 8, with more perks that he could count.
"The only thing I have to worry about is still play some good golf tomorrow and that will take care of itself", Ancer said. "I wanted to get obviously the highest finish I could get to make it to the Tour Championship, which it was definitely one of my goals starting this year".
He will be the first Mexican-born player to compete in the Cup, dating back to 1994.
His biggest trouble was on the 15th hole, where he went from a fairway bunker into the trees right of the fairway, hit to the back of the green some 65 feet away from the front pin and had to hole a 5-foot putt to escape with bogey.
As the round waned and challengers faded, Reed corrected course with a pair of birdies on 14 and 16 and pared out the final two holes to finish at -2 for the round. The top 70 advance to the BMW Championship next week at Medinah, but a good finish could sew up a spot in the Tour Championship and make him eligible for all the majors next year. Reed came into the Sunday with only one bogey in his first 54 holes.
Then, Reed closed strong. There are nine players within four strokes of Reed, including past FedExCup champions Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Brandt Snedeker.
Spieth, who had to put together a good round just to get into the BMW Championship next week did just that.
