Patrick Reed celebrates with the winner's trophy after the final round of The Northern Trust at Liberty National Golf Club on Aug. 11, 2019 in Jersey City, N.J.Jared C. Tilton/Getty Images

Patrick Reed rallied from a two-shot deficit with three straight putts on the back nine at Liberty National that allowed him to win The Northern Trust and end 16 months without winning since his Masters title.

Reed closed with a 2-under 69 for a one-shot victory over Abraham Ancer. The victory moves him to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup, assuring he will be at the Tour Championship in two weeks for a shot at the $15 million prize.

Reed was two back when he hit pitching wedge perfectly off a ridge on the back on the par-3 14th green to set up a birdie. Jon Rahm began to fall back with bogeys, and Reed made two more big putts to seize control.

Ancer closed with a 69.

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., was the top Canadian at 8 under after posting a final round of 2-under 69. Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., also shot 69 Sunday and finished at 4 under. Roger Sloan of Merritt. B.C., struggled Sunday with a final round of 74 to finish at 1 under, one stroke ahead of Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont. (73).
