Reed Wins Masters
Patrick Reed became famous playing for his country. He won for himself yesterday at the Masters.
Rory McIlroy came after him early and Jordan Spieth briefly tied him for the lead.
Rickie Fowler birdied the last hole to leave him no room for error. Reed never flinched through it all on a raucous afternoon at Augusta National, calmly rolling in a 3-foot par putt for a 1-under 71 and a one-shot victory.
Captain America is now the Masters champion.
Even as the loudest cheers were for everyone else, Reed earned all the respect with two big birdie putts on the back nine, one key par and plenty of grit.
