Patrick Reed held off a hard-charging Ryan Palmer to win the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation by two shots for his second PGA TOUR title. Reed became the first player to win a PGA TOUR event with Callaway's Big Bertha Alpha driver and SR-3 ball.

Reed's Big Bertha Alpha featured 9.5 degrees of actual loft and a 44-1/4-inch Fujikura Fuel Tour Spec 85x that was tipped 1-inch. The driver was set in the neutral position with the Gravity Core — the "Gravity Core" in the sole of the club allows golfers to adjust spin independently of launch angle — set in the "up" position.

SR-3, the same ball Phil Mickelson is currently playing, is a five-piece ball that's geared toward golfers with driver swing speeds of more than 105 miles per hour. It features the same dual mantle as SR-2 with a HEX pattern that reduces drag at high speeds, without sacrificing low speed lift. Minimizing drag allows the ball to have a more boring trajectory for increased distance and control.

The two-time PGA TOUR winner also finished fourth in the field in putts per GIR (1.544) with an Odyssey Metal-X Milled #6 putter he put in play at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
