Patrick Reed won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, beating Jordan Spieth with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.

Reed recovered from a drive on the par-4 10th that nearly went out of bounds and placed his second shot 7 feet from the pin.

Spieth reached the green in two strokes but his 10-foot birdie putt trickled less than an inch wide of the cup. Reed then sank his birdie putt to end it.

Reed earned $954,000 money and 500 FedEx Cup points for winning the final tournament before the playoffs.

Reed and Spieth finished regulation at 14-under 266. Reed closed with a 4-under 66, and Spieth had a 65.
