(AP) 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.


The 20-year-old Spieth, the John Deere winner in a playoff last month, was denied in his bid to become youngest two-time champion in the modern era of the PGA Tour.


John Huh and Brian Harman were two strokes behind. Harman had a 66, and Huh shot 68.


DICK'S SPORTING GOODS OPEN


ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) Bart Bryant won the Dick's Sporting Goods Open to becoming the Champions Tour's 1,000th tournament winner.


Bryant shot a tournament record-tying 10-under 62 in the second round and completed his first victory on the 50-and-over tour with 72. He finished at 16-under 200 to beat Russ Cochran and Corey Pavin by one shot.


For, the 50-year-old Bryant, who won in only his 14th start on the circuit, it was his first victory since winning the 2005 Tour Championship, ending a drought of 7 years, 9 months, 11 days. He also won the 2005 Memorial and the 2004 Valero Texas Open on the PGA Tour.


Cochran closed with a 67, and Pavin shot 69.


U.S. AMATEUR


BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) Matt Fitzpatrick has won the U.S. Amateur, beating Oliver Goss 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final to become the first English champion of the tournament since 1911.


Fitzpatrick won when Goss missed a par putt on No. 15 at The Country Club. The event came on the 100th anniversary of local caddie Francis Ouimet's U.S. Open victory over British pros Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.


Fitzpatrick earned an exemption for the U.S. Open and British Open and a likely invitation to the Masters. Fitzpatrick was the low amateur at the British Open.


Fitzpatrick, who will be a freshman at Northwestern this fall, had 14-year-old brother Alex as his caddie. Goss used fellow Australian and semifinal opponent Brady Watt.


NEWS SENTINEL OPEN


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Peter Malnati won the News Sentinel Open for his first Web.com Tour title, birdieing five of the last seven holes for a one-stroke victory.


Malnati, a former University of Missouri player from Dandridge, Tenn., closed with a 5-under 65 for a 16-under 268 total at Fox Den Country Club. He earned $99,000.


James White, Miguel Angel Carballo, Matt Bettencourt and Blayne Barber tied for second. White had a 66, Carballo and Bettencourt shot 67, and Barber finished with a 68.


EAGLE CLASSIC


RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Christine Song wrapped up an LPGA Tour card for next season, winning the Eagle Classic for her second Symetra Tour victory of the year.

Song earned $16,500 to jump from 16th to second on the money list with $38,798 with two tournaments left. The final top 10 will earn 2014 LPGA Tour cards.
