Confirmed his talent with victory at the 2014 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, thanks to rounds of 68-75-69-72, to prevail by one stroke over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson. That success brought the American a third win in only 14 starts. At age 23 years, seven months and four days, became the youngest player to ever win a World Golf Championships event, with Tiger Woods (23 years, seven months, 30 days) the previous youngest with his win at the 1999 Bridgestone Invitational. Has won on each occasion (three times) he has held a 54-hole lead/co-lead.
Previous win came at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation in January 2014, where he held on for a two-stroke, wire-to-wire win, thanks to rounds of 63-63-63-71. Became the first player in PGA Tour history to post scores of 63 or better in his first three rounds. Also broke the PGA Tour 54-hole scoring record in relation to par by two shots, thanks to his 27 under par total after the first three days.
Following his heroics at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, finished in a tie for fourth at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to record his second top-ten in just his third start in a WGC event, all coming this season.
Made plenty of progress in 2013 as well, making 16 of 26 cuts on the PGA Tour, with five top-tens and a first Tour win arriving at the Wyndham Championship with wife, Justine, serving as caddie. That maiden victory saw Reed have to come through a playoff with Jordan Spieth at the second extra hole. His first Tour title arrived in his 38th career start. It also meant he became the first player to win on Tour with his wife as a caddie since Steve Stricker won the 1996 BMW Championship with his wife, Nicki, caddying. As an amateur won two high school state championships at University Lab School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Won back-to-back NCAA Championships with Augusta State University, in 2010 and 2011. Was a two-time first-team All American in college.
