Lucas Herbert finished 15 under to win the Bermuda Championship, giving him his first PGA Tour title. Herbert, who started the day four shots behind, played a game that included birdies and bogeys, but was able to steer the game towards his direction as he finished with a one-shot lead over the rest. Patrick Reed and Danny Lee were tied at second place with 14 under. Patrick Rodgers came fourth while overnight leader Taylor Pendrith struggled to finish fifth.

Pendrith, who began the final round with a three-shot advantage, saw the lead drop to one shot after making a bogey at the sixth. Herbert made a birdie at the second and another at the third. Pendrith lost his share of the lead at the eighth after making three bogeys in a row. Herbert made a birdie at the 12th but made his second error of the day at the 13th. This saw his lead reduce as he dropped to 14 under. In the 14th hole, Herbert made a 30-foot birdie that saw him take the lead again. He ended the day with a winning par.

Reed had great luck as he made a birdie at the 13th, then two more birdies in the last two holes as he finished six-under 65. Pendrith continued to suffer more errors as he slipped further, causing him to finish fifth.
