Donald Trump just made the Masters all about him

Grant SmithApr 12, 2018

Reed, who had never cracked 70 in 12 Masters rounds before this week, became the fourth straight first-time Masters victor and the ninth first-time victor in the past 10 majors.

This is the fourth straight year that McIlroy arrived at Augusta National looking to complete the career Grand Slam - a feat accomplished by only five of the game's greatest players.

Never one to back down from a fight, Patrick Reed sure had one on his hands Sunday in the final round of the 82nd Masters.

With that in mind, here's a look at the contenders on the leader board with 18 holes to play.

Sitting at a Waffle House while enjoying some breakfast, it quickly became clear that the majority of my fellow diners were headed to the final round.

Throughout my week at the Masters, I've run into just about anything you could expect to see surrounding a major golf championship. But there's something about the position he's in that can be hard on which to sleep, and the others around him know that. You know, it's something that I needed to learn, especially at a place like this, how important it is to stick to what I believe and how I feel like I need to play the golf course.

"I knew it was going to be a dogfight", Reed told reporters.

If it wasn't 2011, it was another huge opportunity frittered away.

Fowler's next shot at collecting a major will be at June's U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in NY.

Woods wrapped up the tournament Sunday with his best round, a 3-under-par 69.

Quote: "I've been waiting for this chance, to be honest".

"I just didnt quite have it", the Northern Ireland star said.

Reed finished -15 for the tournament and the win marks his first major championship. "Every hole it seemed like I had a really good look at it, but couldn't get anything to go".

Sunday outlook: Fowler's game would dictate that he can win majors - and yet, it simply hasn't happened.

His Top Five finish at all four majors in 2014-without winning-still stands alone. He shot a 7-under 65 in the third round Saturday to match his lowest score at the Masters, pushing him within three shots of Reed and into the final pairing. Or when Fowler made his dramatic late push.

Quote: "Obviously, it's been everyone's dream to win the Masters".

"I don't think it's really as much a popularity thing with the fans as it is that Rory has been in this position before to win here".

Fowler showed some fight, too. And if you miss a shot just a touch here, it gets magnified.

Reed enjoyed an enormous stroke of luck when his approach to the 13th came up short, but plugged in the bank of Rae's Creek instead of rolling back into the water. Big props have to go to Canadian chiropractor and biomechanics expert Dr. Stuart Love of Victoria, who helps a number of PGA Tour players.

Sitting nine shots off the pace at the start of the day, Spieth was an afterthought as spectators filed into Augusta National but were once again in the Masters spotlight when the Green Jacket was up for grabs. "I just haven't played it well enough at the right times".

On it being the hardest round of golf mentally he's played.

. He made an odd slip-up with a bogey at the par-5 second on Saturday.

This was one of the great back-nine Sundays in the history of the Masters.

Quote: "I feel like I'm going to go out and try and finish with a solid round tomorrow, hopefully". I was just a little too far back but we did everything we could. He said he couldn't wait to tee it up in the final group. Two-time champion Bubba Watson joins Australian Marc Leishman and Englishman Tommy Fleetwood at 6 under.

In four Masters appearances, Spieth also has two runner-up finishes and a tie for 11th past year. Jack Burke, Jr. owns the record at the Masters with an eight-shot final round comeback in a 1958 win over Ken Venturi. He's played the course's longest holes at 13 under this week, better than anyone else in the field.
