Reavie birdied the penultimate hole where challenger Keegan Bradley made double-bogey to turn a one-shot Reavie lead into a winning four at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Making mostly pars, the 37-year-old Reavie saw much of a six-stroke overnight lead evaporate but his one-under 69 was enough to see him hang on for the victory at 17-under 263.

His only other PGA Tour victory came at the 2008 RBC Canadian Open.

"It means everything," said Reavie, who had undergone wrist and knee surgery since the 2008 win. "I had to stay patient today. Keegan was playing great and I kept missing putts," he said.

"Finally I made one on 17 and kind of turned the corner."

Bradley and compatriot Zack Sucher tied for second at 13-under after both shot 67s.

Vaughn Taylor (65) finished fourth at 12-under, while Paul Casey (65) shared fifth with Joaquin Niemann (66) and Kevin Tway (67) who were another stroke back. Reavie's victory came a week after he tied for third at the US Open.
