Harold Varner III and Jon Rahm of Spain finished third on 14 under.

Rory McIlroy, who missed the cut at The Open last month, ended four shots behind Reed.

England Ian Poulter and Justin Rose finished in 11 but fellow countryman Danny Willett, who started the day three shots behind Reed, shot a four-over-par 74 to slip out of the fight.

Reed lowered his winning putt from three feet to victory, while Ancer continues to look for his first PGA Tour victory.
