On Thursday, Patrick Reed looked like the only man who was capable of taming Bethpage State Park’s black course. On Sunday, he confirmed his case.
Reed shot a one-under 70 in Sunday’s fourth round, coming back from one stroke behind to win the 2016 Barclays tournament. He finished nine under overall and shot par or better in all four rounds at the difficult Farmingdale, New York, course.
Sean O’Hair and Emiliano Grillo tied for second place at eight under. Jason Day, Adam Scott and Gary Woodland tied for fourth with matching seven-under scores.
Woods is in New Jersey, where he will participate in his first post-divorce tournament on Wednesday.
The golf pro was to be held at 6 hours and is to tee off at 7:10 of the first round of Barclays golf tournament, which is at the Ridgefield Country Club in Paramus for the first time. The major non-tournament will last until Sunday.

The win was Reed’s first of the 2015-16 PGA Tour season and the fifth of his career. His most recent win was at the 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. This season had been marred by near-misses, with Reed having posted nine top-10 and three second-place finishes coming into the week.
The 26-year-old left nothing to chance Sunday, overcoming a bogey on the par-three third hole to post three birdies in a four-hole stretch from Nos. 4 through 7. After making the turn at two under for the day, Reed got to three under with a birdie on No. 12 before dropping a pair of strokes on Nos. 16 and 18.
His win clinched a spot on the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team, something Reed admitted was on the back of his mind earlier this week.
