Augusta State's Patrick Reed holds on to win Humana Challenge

Posted: Updated:
LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) - Patrick Reed lost his putting touch for a few hours in the final round of the Humana Challenge. He found it when things were getting interesting.
    
After shooting three straight 9-under 63s to open a seven-stroke lead, Reed had a 1-under 71 on Sunday at PGA West's Arnold Palmer Private Course to beat Ryan Palmer by two strokes.
    
Finally resembling the guy who talked Saturday about being in a "putting coma," Reed ran in an 18-footer for birdie on the par-3 15th to push his advantage to three strokes and parred the final three holes. He completed the wire-to-wire victory at 28-under 260.
    
The 23-year-old Reed also won the Wyndham Championship in August.
    
Palmer made a 15-foot eagle putt on the final hole for a 63.
