Reed secures Ryder Cup spot


Patrick Reed has booked his place on the US Ryder Cup team courtesy of his victory at The Barclays.

Reed trailed Rickie Fowler by one stroke going into Sunday's final round but the 26-year-old's one-under 70 was enough to see him take the opening event in the FedEx Cup play-off series.

Things did not start off too well for Reed as he fell further behind Fowler with a bogey four at the third, but he recovered with three birdies in his next four holes, taking the lead for the first time when his playing partner failed to get up and down from the greenside bunger.

Reed moved two clear with a birdie on the 12th and despite bogeys at the 16th and 18th, victory was secured when Fowler was unable to save par on the 15th.

"It feels amazing. I have not had that feeling in a while coming down the last couple of holes. I felt like I did a lot of things well, although it was not the scores I wanted on the last few holes, but it was nice to win," Reed told Sky Sports.

Reed began The Barclays in the final automatic qualifying place for the US Ryder Cup team and he is looking forward to representing his country in the tournament at Hazeltine.

"I'm so glad (about the Ryder Cup). It was a huge goal to get back played having played so well my first time, but unfortunately the cup didn't come back with us," he added.

"(Hoping for) sweet revenge and hopefully the cup comes back home."

Sean O'Hair and Emiliano Grillo finished just a stroke behind Reed with world number one Jason Day, Gary Woodland and Adam Scott a shot further back, while Fowler dropped back into a share of seventh.
