Reed rallies to win Kapalua in a playoff

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) Patrick Reed holed an 80-yard shot for eagle and made two birdies over his last four holes Monday. The last birdie was on the 18th hole in a playoff to beat Jimmy Walker in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Reed was four shots behind with four holes to play when he put together his big rally and closed with a 6-under 67.

For the second straight day, Walker didn't make birdie after the 10th hole. He had a chance to win in regulation but missed his birdie putt from 18 feet and shot 69.

They finished at 21-under 271.

In the playoff, Walker had an advantage until he chipped from below the bleachers over the green. Reed hit wedge to 18 feet and holed it for his fourth career win.
