Patrick Reed won the masters after shooting in the 60s on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, heading into Sunday. Reed was among the leaders all week and stole the show on Sunday, finishing the tournament at 15 under.
This was Reed’s first major win. He finished tied for second in the PGA championship last year, and now has a title and a green jacket to his name.
Jordan Spieth was unstoppable Thursday and was thought to be a potential winner going into Sunday. Unfortunately, Spieth struggled on Friday after starting the day off on a bad foot with a double bogey on the first hole. Spieth would rebound throughout the weekend, but the struggle Friday was too much to get him back in the lead. Spieth had a Sunday that will go down in Masters history, after shooting a 64, but unfortunately he came up short and a chance at his second green jacket.
Rickie Fowler also had a week to remember after finishing 14 under, securing the sole second place in the 2018 masters. With the second place finish, Fowler has top 3 finish in every single major. He will be fun to watch in upcoming tournament and try for a major victory.
Rory Mcllroy had an unfortunate 2 over par for the day on Sunday, causing him to drop out of contention for winning the masters and a grand slam. Rory kept pace with the leaders all weekend but lost track on Sunday, finishing tied for 5th.
With making the cut for the weekend, Tiger Woods has made the cut for every Masters he had appeared in. With a 69 on Sunday, Tiger shot his best score in a day since 2015. Tiger was a favorite going into the Masters and a big name to watch. Tiger still had his struggles as people thought, considering he still isn’t 100% better from his back surgeries. He finished 3 under for the tournament, so there has been lots of progress, and he will be an exciting player to watch later on this year.
Another big name coming into the week was Sergio Garcia. Garcia played one of the worst rounds of his career. Garcia finished 15 over and missed the cut to play the weekend.
Fred Couples most likely played in his last masters of his career. He was the oldest player in the tournament and finished 3 over for the tournament.
