Reed finished at four under 284 to beat runner-ups Welshman Jamie Donaldson and American Bubba Watson.

Donaldson shot a two-under 70 to grab a share of second along with 2012 runner-up Watson, who had a four-under 68 in the $9 million tournament.

Donaldson made birdie on No. 17 to get within one, but he bogeyed 18.

South Africa's Richard Sterne (71) and American Dustin Johnson (72) tied for fourth at even-par 288. Stephen Gallacher (69), Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (68) and Bill Haas (71) were one stroke back at plus-one.

Tiger Woods stumbled to the finish with six-over 78. Woods, who won this event for the seventh time in 2013, played through the pain of a nagging bad back.

Woods and Jim Furyk were the only two players without a birdie in the final round. This marked the eighth time in Woods's tour career that he did not have a birdie in the final round.
