Chez Reavie kisses the championship trophy after the final round of the Barracuda Championship PGA golf tournament at Tahoe Mt. Club's Old Greenwood golf course in Truckee on Sunday.

Reavie had plus-37 points after Saturday’s round, but struggled a bit on his front nine Sunday.

He said staying patient was the key.

“I knew I was going to have to. I knew some guys were going to make a lot of birdies early. I was hoping to be one of those guys, but the putter was kind of letting me down early,” Reavie said. “Just tried to keep it as close as I could to the hole and give myself some good looks.”
