TaxSlayer Congratulates Patrick Reed: Youngest WGC Winner


Patrick Reed claimed his third PGA title with a one-stroke win in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.

Dressed in a red shirt that he always wears in the final round, Reed made back-to-back birdies early on the front nine to build a big lead and showed off a great short game when the pressure was building at Doral. Equipped with a two-shot lead, the 23-year-old played the final hole conservatively. He two-putted for bogey and closed with an even-par 72 for a one-shot victory over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson of Wales.

Reed became the youngest winner of a World Golf Championship, his third win in his last 14 tournaments. Reed has had a share of the lead going into the final round of all three of his victories — the Wyndham Championship last August, the Humana Challenge in January and a World Golf Championship at Doral that featured the strongest field so far this year.

TaxSlayer is very proud sponsor of Patrick and wishes him much success in future PGA events.
