Patrick Reed did it.
But it wasn’t easy.
While Reed dismissed playing partner Rory McIlroy early, he had to hold off challenges from Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth.
In the end, Reed finished at 15-under par, just 1-under on the day, to capture his first major.
Fowler finished second at 14-under and Spieth finished third at 13-under. Reed two-putted on the final hole, making a final four-footer, to secure the win.
