  • Patrick Reed is the halfway leader of the Masters

Reed had the last shot, a 3-foot par putt for a one-shot victory and his first major championship.

Patrick Reed celebrates after winning the 2018 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. That's what we saw with Reed all week, every time someone put it up to him he said, 'Ok, you know what?

Patrick Reed of the United States is presented with the green jacket.

Since playing in his first Major 11 years ago at the British Open, McIlroy has proved to become one of the greatest drivers of all-time, while he also gets incredible height with his irons.

"I would love to see that".

"I gave it my all", Fowler said Sunday. Jack Nicklaus drained his famous putt in 1975 en-route to victory over Johnny Miller and Tom Wieskopf, and almost aced the hole in 1986 during a late Sunday charge.

The final seven pairings that teed off on Sunday included 11 potential Ryder Cuppers in Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson. Reed sank an eight-foot birdie putt at the par-4 14th to regain a one-stroke lead. Then it was Spieth, running off four birdies in a five-hole stretch on the back nine to challenge the course record.


Duggan noted how fans online continually referenced McIlroy's lost chance of an Eagle while putting on the second green, something that may have played a part in his poor display, and how that was the difference between him and the 2018 champion, Reed.

McIlroy dropped his first shot of the day at the third hole, setting the tone for the rest of the day, and Duval reckons he simply chose the wrong club. He had to make a 6-footer for par on the 17th.

World number one Dustin Johnson fired a 69 to share 10th on 281 and retain his rankings lead. Webb Simpson, the 2012 US Open victor, made back-to-back eagles at the seventh and par-5 eighth. Reed told him as they exchanged a hug. Without glancing at one of the massive green scoreboards that adorn the grounds each April, a patron could have believed for a moment that the roars were for Arnold Palmer as he edged Ken Venturi by a shot back in 1960-or for Jack Nicklaus himself when he ascended the leaderboard with a late charge to defeat Greg Norman and Tom Kite back in 1986. "All in all it was a bittersweet ending".

The major championships present the best chance for volatility in the Ryder Cup USA standings with double points awarded to the victor and 1.5 points awarded to everyone else. Woods, a four-time Masters champion, failed to deliver on promise showed in two top-5 tuneup finishes but said he was glad to be back.

"Things are progressing", said Woods. "I made too many bogeys".

"It's positive what he's doing", Ryan Godsey, a 41-year-old teacher from Greenville, South Carolina, said as Woods made birdie at the par-three fourth. But overall it was a lot of fun.
