SUNRIVER, Ore. (AP) -- Mike Reid made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat John Cook and win the Jeld-Wen Tradition for his second career major on the Champions Tour.

Reid raised both hands and let out a deep sigh before humbly removing his cap and shaking Cook's hand on Sunday at Crosswater Golf Club in central Oregon.

Reid has won just twice on the Champions Tour, both majors. He also won the 2005 Senior PGA Championship.

Cook's approach shot on the playoff hole, No. 18, came to rest about 15 feet away and his downhill putt for birdie missed just left.
