Masters 2018: Patrick Reed holds first major title at Augusta, Ahead of Spieth and Fowler.

Jordan Spieth started the last day nine shots uncontrolled of the lead. What in this manner happened came surprisingly close to the finest shutting round in Augusta history. Spieth quickly tied Reed's lead; the splitting of a tree limb at the last ended the 2015 champion's charge. Spieth's 64 and less 13 add up to demonstrated futile.

Fowler was beside rise up out of the pack, with a birdie at the last significance Reed had no edge for blunder. Reed dreaded he had pulled a drive which found the left half of the fairway. A mid iron into two-putt go took after, as did run of the mill festivity. Given what anticipation had preceded, the resolution felt like a let-down; which is credit to Reed's steeliness under the most extraordinary of weight. Fowler is deserving of acknowledgment for ensuring he was outside the scoring hovel to praise the champion. "I forgot everything there, I influenced him to gain it," said Fowler.

The Northern Irishman missed from 4ft for a bird at the second in what was a bumping pointer of troubles to come. McIlroy didn't recoup certainty or touch on the greens from that point; his 74 implied nine under in addition to an offer of fifth with Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and Cameron Smith. The 28-year-old McIlroy cut a hopeless figure when strolling from the 72nd green. This one will sting.

Jon Rahm earned fourth at 11 under, with the Spaniard's noticeable disturbance at that situation telling in regard of aggressive sense. A noteworthy win seems close for Rahm.

Paul Casey, who began day four in the under locales of the scoring table, quickly played with history. The Englishman was nine under standard through 15 gaps; raising the possibility of equalling the Masters record score of 63. As regularly comes to pass in these situations, a poke was conveyed by reality. Casey came up short every one of his last two openings for a 65 and total of five under.

2018 Masters: Patrick Reed Quotes. 

"Any time trying to close off a golf tournament is really hard but to close off my first major at a place that's so close to me, being where I went to college, means so much.

 "I knew the lead would shrink and grow - it's just the flows of golf, you have to know how to handle it and the way I could get that done was to make sure the putter was working.
 "Just to make par on the last and to watch the ball go in the hole and know that I've won my first major - to finish off that drought - meant so much to me."

Reed said: “I walked up to the first tee and had a really welcoming cheer from the fans but then when Rory walked up to the tee, his cheer was a little louder. But that’s another thing that just kind of played into my hand. 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.

 “I think that’s the biggest thing going into a Sunday, especially trying to win, for me trying to win my first; for him, trying to win the career Grand Slam, it’s who is going to handle the pressure and who is going to have more pressure on them.
