Watching Patrick Reed on Sunday, you’d never know that just 24 hours earlier he was at the center of another entanglement with the Rules of Golf (later joined by Rory McIlroy).

Following a situation with an embedded ball in the third round, Reed shared a lead with Carlos Ortiz entering the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, but he was alone atop the leaderboard when all was said and done. The 30-year-old fired a 4-under 68 on Sunday to win the Farmers at 14 under for his ninth victory on the PGA Tour. Since earning his Tour card in 2013, Reed has won every year except 2017.

In his previous two starts so far this year, Reed finished T-21 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and missed the cut at last week’s American Express.

Tony Finau, Henrik Norlander, Ryan Palmer, Xander Schauffele and Viktor Hovland finished in a five-way tie for second at 9 under.
