TRUCKEE, Calif. — Chez Reavie won the Barracuda Championship on Sunday, holding on in the breezy final round of the PGA Tour's lone modified Stableford scoring event for his third title on golf's top circuit.

Six points ahead entering the day, Reavie had a six-point round for a one-point victory over Sweden's Alex Noren on Tahoe Mountain Club's Old Greenwood layout. The 40-year-old American became the first PGA Tour winner 40 or older since Lucas Glover in the 2021 John Deere Classic.

Reavie finished with 43 points.

"I've been working hard," Reavie said. "I've been hitting the ball, and I knew I could do it. I just kept grinding, and here we are."

With the event also sanctioned by the Europe-based DP World Tour, Reavie earned spots on both circuits through the 2024 seasons.

"I'll get over there," Reavie said. "I had no idea that that was on the table until I finished. I'm excited. I would love to go to Europe and play and maybe go play in the BMW (Championship) or something. I'd enjoy that a lot."

Reavie also won the 2008 Canadian Open and the 2019 Travelers Championship. Reavie had four birdies and two bogeys Sunday. Players get five points for an eagle and two for a birdie, while a par is worth zero points, a point is deducted for a bogey and three are taken away for a double bogey or worse.

"It was stressful out there today with the wind and missing some putts early," Reavie said. "Was fortunate to make some good putts coming in and pull it off."

He birdied the par-5 12th and made his last birdie on the par-4 16th, holing a 15-footer after his flop approach hit a seam in the grass and shot forward. He got up and down for par from a greenside bunker on the par-3 17th, holing a five-footer, then tapped in for par on the par-4 18th.

Noren, who had a 14-point round, is a 10-time winner on the European circuit who joined the PGA Tour in 2018.

Scotland's Martin Laird was third at 38 after a seven-point day, Mark Hubbard finished fourth at 37, and Scott Gutschewski was fifth at 35.

Chattanooga's Stephan Jaeger finished with 24 points, earning half of that in the final round to shoot 35 spots up the leaderboard and finish tied for 22nd.
