Golfer Reed regains Masters green jacket for US

Adjust Comment Print

Reed's three-shot lead over Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy to start the fourth round proved to be insurmountable, even as Fowler shot a 67 and Spieth tied a final-round Masters record with a 64.

On posting three rounds in the 60s.

"At the end of the day, if I go out and I feel pleased with how I play, then, you know, it should be an enjoyable Sunday night". "But after I parred the first, that sort of settled me down". "I left everything out there on the golf course". "To actually finally be sitting down and have my first major be the green jacket, and to be able to sit here wearing it, it's a surreal moment for me and it's something that I'll never forget".

On whether or not he was watching the leaderboards. When they were gone on Sunday, the first page of the leaderboard belonged to the 20-somethings.

What I do know is that he is a baller.

He won a big one Sunday, and it was hard work, just the way he likes it.

"I knew at that point as long as there weren't any catastrophic implosions coming in it was going to be between Rickie and I". But the latter again pulled ahead with a birdie on 15th. But it this guy you gas says sixteen net.

Patrick Reed may be one of the most unpopular winners in Masters history, but just about everyone is portraying him as a deserving champion.

Fowler, still seeking his first major win, birdied six of the last 11 holes.

"Definitely growing up everybody dreams about winning the Masters", he said.

The American held his nerve on a riveting final day of The Masters to hold off charges from Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth to claim the green jacket by one shot as Rory McIlroy's challenge faltered.

A large amount of the patrons who lined the course at Augusta National arrived in hope of seeing McIlroy complete a career grand slam of golf's four major tournaments. It was possibly the highest score I could have shot today. At The Ryder Cup, it's just a totally different type of pressure. This was a Ryder Cup star and a 5 time PGA Tour victor, certainly no back number.

McIlroy did not. It was telling that he did not even figure in Reed's conversation about what was going through his mind as he came round the back nine.

"Unlike the earlier Tiger, "unless I win, I'm wasting my time", he's taking the increments as positive signs. And I peaked at it four times [in his Masters victories] over the course of my career, and it's tiring".

He won in his fifth start at Augusta, the city where he went to university, Reed said this was the one he wanted to win. "Not only did it fuel my fire a little bit, but also it just takes the pressure off of me and adds it back to him". It's definitely harder to do that than I thought. However, missing the putt and having to settle for birdie was compounded by a bogey at the next and a birdie from Reed which brought the American's lead back to three. Why do you think that is? Chip it down there. "Worst-case scenario we'll make par".

"I saw Jordan and Rickie storm up those leaderboards. It doesn't matter. It all comes down to us". If you do what we do, we'll win this golf tournament. "Let's go do it". The reality that you don't get another crack for 51 more weeks and that you probably only get about 10 more in your absolute prime has to be sobering.

The newly-crowned major victor was also seen shaking hands with rapper 2 Chainz and Cleveland star Kevin Love, who scored 28 points for his side on Monday night. On Monday, Reed caught a tree with his backswing on the first and still got his ball in the front bunker.

"I had my caddy remind me of that the entire week", he reflected. Just be you. Play golf.

You only get so many shots. If you aren't happy about something, it's all right.

Although the Irishman's chances ended in disappointment, Augusta National still sprung up the usual drama associated with the first Major of the season.

On if he regrets saying that top 5 in the world comment years ago.

"Glad I at least made the last one, make him earn it", Fowler said with a grin as he waited to greet the newest major champion. "I stand by my comments".
