Patrick Reed rallied from a two-shot deficit with three straight putts on the back nine at Liberty National that allowed him to win The Northern Trust and end 16 months without winning since his Masters title.

Reed closed with a 2-under 69 for a one-shot victory over Abraham Ancer.

The victory moves him to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup, assuring he will be at the PGA's Tour Championship in two weeks for a shot at the $15 million prize.

Corey Conners was the top Canadian at 8 under after posting a final round of 2-under 69.

Adam Hadwin also shot 69 Sunday and finished at 4 under.

Roger Sloan struggled with a final round of 74 to finish at 1under, one stroke ahead of Mackenzie Hughes.
