Patrick Reed rallies to win Northern Trust

Adam Scott drives during the Northern Trust PGA event

This is a time in the season and a locale where he feels comfortable.

Reed, whose heroics in the Ryder Cup earned him the patriotic moniker, emerged from the star-studded leaderboard to shoot a final-round 69 Sunday and win the Northern Trust at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City.

"I nearly felt like I pressed harder and worked harder and tried harder and therefore, it made me physically and mentally drained", said Reed.

"It's incredible, just to be back and to feel like I've been playing some solid golf and finally having it pay off and to come out as a victory; it's been a while".

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., is the top Canadian at 6 under, eight shots off the lead.

Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth, playing in the final group, lost ground on a blustery day at Liberty National.

Reed did not exactly bust it down, but two birdies in a bogey-free back nine were enough, while Australian Open champion Ancer birdied the 16th and 17th for his best result on tour. It was his second straight Saturday swoon, and this one could be costly. It's not a place he lives (he's 47th on the PGA Tour this season), but when he's up there, he's a nasty out.

He still has one round left and a big crowd in front of him.

Reed was at 14-under 199 and will be paired in the final group with Ancer, who had a 68 as he tries to deliver good golf at the right time.

Ancer, who won the Australian Open late previous year, is No. 67 in the FedEx Cup. He wrapped up a spot on the global team for the Presidents Cup, making him the first Mexican in the event.

"Medinah has got some good memories for me", said McIlroy.

"I'm starting to think clearly while I'm out there (on the course) and. the game starts turning around".

What? Shweta Tiwari files a complaint against husband Abhinav Kohli over violence?
A report has been filed against Abhinav which read that the 38-year-old had abused in filthy language to her stepdaughter Palak. She accused him of passing obscene comment and showing her daughter obscene pictures in his mobile phone since October 2017.

"It's just the beginning", he said.

Why are the positions so important going into the final two weeks?

Brandt Snedeker had a pair of eagles in his round of 63 that left him two shots behind, along with Jon Rahm of Spain, who had a 69.

Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Danny Willett all started the day amongst the chasing pack but were unable to make any impression on the top two.

There was nothing fancy about his golf, which is how he likes it.

The 19-year-old Ruffels, preparing for her junior season at the University of Southern California, pulled even with a birdie on the par-5 33rd, took the lead with a birdie on the par-3 35th and matched Valenzuela with a birdie on the par-4 36th.

"The good stuff is in there; I'm just hitting too many loose shots and they are costing me". "I went to a softer, higher-launching golf ball last Sunday". Then came a T-28 at the Wells Fargo Championship and a T-63 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, followed by a missed cut at the PGA Championship.

"It's going the right direction", he said. "If Tiger wants to call me, he knows I'll always call him back. I just need to go out and give myself opportunities".

The U.S. suffered a lopsided defeat to Europe in Paris, and Reed had indirectly suggested that he wasn't thrilled having Woods as his partner.

He has been rock solid since returning, and Sunday's victory elevates him back into contention for the Tiger Woods-captained USA side for December's Presidents Cup against an worldwide team in Australia.

If he was thinking about that Saturday, it was because of the location.

"Probably more in the back of my mind here because it was here in 2017 and seeing the Statue of Liberty", Reed said.
