Reed Victorious at Augusta

This Sunday at The Masters was unbelievable. Patrick Reed won the first major championship of his career, fending off late attacks from Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler who had incredible final rounds.

 

Reed, at 14 under, was paired with PGA elite Rory Mcilroy, 11 under, for the final pairing on Sunday as they were ranked the highest following Saturday’s rounds. Mcilroy unfortunately did not play anywhere near his potential, and ended the round two over, putting himself out of contention to win the coveted green jacket. What was thought to be a slug match of a day between the two golfers turned out quite different, as competition came from elsewhere in the field.

 

Spieth had one of the best Sunday rounds ever recorded at The Masters. He shot eight under and tied Reed with a chance to jump into the lead outright on 18 until his tee shot clipped a tree limb on the left side of the fairway, dropping the ball well short of where he would have liked to be. The shot caused Spieth to bogey the 18th hole, falling a shot behind Reed.

 

Playing in the group in front of Mcilroy and Reed was the competitive Fowler. Through his first seven holes, Fowler was one over par, however he exploded in the final 11 holes. Fowler birdied six holes and did not shoot a single bogey the rest of the round. The score left him just one behind of Reed at 14 under for the tournament, leaving Reed just one hole left to clinch the tournament.

 

Reed did not submit to the pressure and recorded a par, knocking in a short putt on the 18th green to finish the job.

 

Tiger Woods had a very sub-par tournament. He did make the cut to continue playing through the weekend, but that was about the best he was able to manage. Woods shot a 73 on Thursday, 75 Friday, a 72 Saturday, and finishing the tournament with a decent round at three under with a 69. He was one over par when all was said and done, 16 shots back of the leader.
