Masters Results 2018: Final Leaderboard and Reaction to Patrick Reed's Win

Maybe that's why when he turned on the television Sunday morning with a three-shot lead, he heard plenty of flattering observations about his game without anyone thinking he was going to win. "He's got that to deal with and sleep on tonight".

With his putter running hot, Spieth went on to pick up further shots at 13 and 15, while Reed responded superbly to a bogey at 11 by rolling in a 22-foot putt for a two at the 12th. This was not the outcome the oddsmakers expected.

Reed won the green jacket, but will also take home almost $2 million.

He doesn't look like a professional golfer.

'When you're playing in the final group in a major there's always going to be pressure but when I parred the first that settled me down, so it wasn't as if nerves got to me.

Augusta State beat Oklahoma State in the 2010 final and defeated Georgia in 2011.

Reed has also been estranged from his parents and sister. He doesn't welcome questions about his personal life. He won a prominent tournament at a young age, and immediately - and prematurely - designated himself among the top five players in the world.

Reed ran off three straight birdies around the turn and stretched his lead with two eagles on the back nine.

Patrick Reed and his par-5 prowess versus Rory McIlroy and his penchant for clutch shots.

"I was trying to let the golf course give what it can give on Sunday", Jordan Spieth said on television after Reed had won.

"With his power he should have just hit it right down in front of the green because that's going to assure you of making a par".

He didn't flinch when Spieth briefly pulled even with him at 14-under Sunday.

Fowler applied the pressure late in his round, as he made a brilliant birdie at the last to move to within one of the leader. "His name is etched in history, and I'm sure he's going to carry everything that he went through as we try to win a Ryder Cup on European soil for the first time in 25 years". "Can you handle the ups and downs throughout the round?"

The loudest cheer from the first tee at Augusta National was for Rory McIlroy, who played with Reed in the final round.

"Obviously it's been everyone's dream to win the Masters", Fowler said. He also played the back nine even with a bogey at 15 and birdie at 16, which left him at 4-over 220 for the tournament in a tie for 39th place. "He's got to go out and protect that, and he's got a few guys chasing him who are pretty big-time players".

David Duval, the 2001 Open champion, hit the nail on the head when it came to summing up Rory McIlroy failing at the fourth attempt to complete that career Grand Slam.

He chipped one in from 23 yards away for an eagle at the par-5 eighth. He led by two shots after Friday's windy second round, then extended the margin to three shots Saturday while others faltered in the rain. There is the custom-fitted green jacket, which the previous year's victor puts on the winning golfer then current victor will carry on the following year.

"It's everything we've been working hard for", Justine Reed, Patrick's wife and former caddie, told ESPN.

"I have no idea and honestly I don't really care what people say on Twitter or what they say if they are cheering for me or not", Reed said. That's what I think.
