World No. 12 Patrick Reed arrives for his fourth Valspar Championship at 75th in the FedExCup standings.
The 26-year-old ranks 2nd on TOUR in Consecutive Cuts Made with 18, dating back to an early exit at the 2016 U.S. Open. Towards the middle of this run, he added his fifth PGA TOUR title at the 2016 Barclays (Bethpage State Park-Black), his second come-from-behind victory. The Spring, Texas, resident also owns three career runner-up finishes, including here in 2015, losing in a 3-man playoff (to Jordan Spieth), his first sudden-death loss in three playoff appearances. He backed it up with T7 last year (71-70-68-73). Of Reed's eight cashes this season, five have been outside the top 40, including his last two (T61, WGC-Mexico; T59, Genesis Open), and three of his last four (T68, WM Phoenix Open). He ranks 28th on TOUR in SG: Putting (0.562) but 197th in SG: Approaching-the-Green (-0.674).
