He needed every stroke available down the stretch, but Patrick Reed finally snapped his
win less drought, winning The Barclays by one over Sean O’ Hair and Emiliano  Grillo on Sunday. Here’s how things shook out at Bethpage Black,    reed_1920_barclays16_d4_wave

where Zach Johnson secured an automatic Ryder Cup berth when Rickie Fowler collapsed:
What it means: This is Reed’s fifth PGA Tour win and his first since the Tournament of Champions in January of last year, nearly 21 months ago.

One back to start the day, Reed took a step back with a bogey at the third before three quick birdies at 4, 5 and 7. He took the lead outright

when Fowler finally dropped a shot at 11 and went up by two with a birdie at 12. He closed with bogeys 16 and 18 to shoot even-par 70 and win by one.

With the victory, Reed moved to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup points list.
Biggest disappointment: Fowler (74) lost out on both a victory and an automatic berth to the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

Tied for the lead at 10 under, he made his first bogey in 56 holes at the par-4 11th and missed putts for birdie at 12, 13 and 14.

Then he came unraveled. A bogey at 15 and a double bogey at 16 cost him both the tournament and a spot in the top eight of the U.S. points listreed_1920_barclays16_d4_fist

(Fowler needed to finish solo third or better to play his way to Hazeltine). After a bounceback birdie at 17 gave him hope,

Fowler ended the suspense with a wayward drive at 18 and one last bogey, ceding the final autobid to Johnson.
Sung Kang and Johnson Wagner tied for the round of the week with 7-under 64s. Kang moved from 122nd in the standings

at the start of the week to 88th, advancing to TPC Boston.
O’Hair and Bubba Watson turned in rounds of 5-under 66. A testament to the swings of the FedEx Cup point system,

O’Hair in one week vaulted from 108th to 18th with his tie for second.
