4th Round Live Report

Report #9 – 6:30pm
Congratulations to 2013 Wyndham Championship winner, Patrick Reed.  He won a sudden-death playoff on the second extra hole to outlast Jordan Spieth.  Both players parred the first playoff hole at No. 18 when Spieth rolled in a 30-foot effort for par while Reed missed his birdie putt. On the second playoff hole, No. 10, Reed played a miraculous second shot from the trees on the right side of the fairway  to seven feet with Spieth already safely on the green.  Spieth narrowly missed his birdie putt and posted a par.  Reed rolled his 7-foot putt up the hill and made birdie to earn his first PGA TOUR victory in his 38th start at 23 years of age. With the win, Reed moved from 78th to 22nd in the FedexExCup point standings.

Reed is the first player to win on TOUR with his wife (Justine) as his caddie since Steve Stricker won the 1996 BMW Championship with his wife Nicki caddying.

Reed joins Vaughn Taylor as the only Augusta State University graduates to win on the PGA TOUR. He became the fourth first-time PGA TOUR winner in the six years since the Wyndham returned to Sedgefield Country Club in 2008 and the 17th first-time winner in tournament history.

Reed is the 12th first-time winner on TOUR this season and first since Jordan Spieth at the John Deere Classic in July.
