American Patrick Reed claimed his ninth career title by cruising to a five-shot win in the Farmers Insurance Open.

The 30-year-old started the day right for the lead at 10 under with Mexico & # 39; s Carlos Ortiz but eased to victory with a four-under 68 at Torrey Pines.

Reed benefited from a controversial freefall on the 10th Saturday, but there were no signs that the incident hit him on the last day .

"I stuck there after everything that happened yesterday," he said.

"I felt mentally strong throughout the entire round," he added the former Masters champion.

"When I spoke to the control officers they said I was doing everything I could. I felt great all day long. I could go out and shoot a movie low number and gets the job done. "

Ortiz had a tough day, passing a final round five times to finish in 19th place, and it was left to rising Norwegian star Viktor Hovland to put a little pressure on Reed.

Ryder Cup player Reed eagled the sixth and birded the seventh and although he gave one back on the next, he got it right back on the ninth to go out in 33.

Hovland made four birdies in six holes to reach the turn in 32, which meant Reed had to play lidly in back nine in California to secure the title.

He did just that by taking eight consecutive birdies and finally a birdie to put the shine on a comfortable victory, as Hovland fell away with bogeys on the 14th, 15th and then at 17 when he missed a putt of barely two feet.

Jon Rahm from Spain had a disappointing closing price of 72 and finished seventh while finishing first. Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy continued his return to form with a closing 66 to share 10th place.

Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland came home in three and finished 16th in sixth place under par.
