Reed holds 1-shot lead heading into final round at Northern Trust

Reed holds 1-shot lead heading into final round at Northern Trust Patrick Reed fired a 67 in Saturday's third round to take a one-stroke lead at The Northern Trust. Reed sits one shot clear of Abraham Ancer, and two ahead of both Brandt Snedeker - who put together the lowest round on Saturday with a 63 - and Jon Rahm entering the fourth round. Saturday's final pairing of Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth struggled on moving day, shooting matching rounds of 3-over 74. They now sit tied for 10th and 13th, respectively. The final round at Liberty National on Sunday will determine who qualifies for the BMW Championship at Medinah, with the top 70 players in the FedExCup standings making the cut to play another week.

MEDINAH, Ill. — Justin Thomas had more stress than he needed Sunday before regaining control with four birdies on the back nine at Medinah to win the BMW Championship and claim the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup finale.

Thomas closed with a 4-under 68 for a three-shot victory over Patrick Cantlay, who shot 65 and will be the No. 2 seed.

Thomas started with a six-shot lead and still led by that margin through seven holes. Three holes later, Cantlay narrowed the lead to two shots with eight to play. Thomas answered with three birdies on the next five holes, and Cantlay couldn't keep up.

Corey Conners (69) of Listowel, Ont., tied for seventh with Lucas Glover at 15 under overall. After starting the season with only a partial PGA Tour card, Conners has now earned a spot in all four majors in next season, the World Golf Championships and, of course, a full tour card for 2020.

He was also well within the top 30 to advance to the Tour Championship. Masters champion Tiger Woods will not be among them to defend his title at East Lake.

Adam Hadwin (76) of Abbotsford, B.C., tied for 43rd at 6 under.
