Reed Wins Master 2018

Patrick Reed held off fellow Americans Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler to claim his first major title with a one-shot win at the Masters at Augusta.

The world number 24, who had been ahead since the second round, led Rory McIlroy by three shots overnight.

McIlroy, chasing his first Green Jacket to complete the Grand Slam, faded with a two-over 74, while Reed parred the last to shoot 71 and win on 15 under.

Fowler (67) ended second, one ahead of Spieth, who had nine birdies in a 64.

Reed, 27, said: "I knew it was going to be tough.

"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.
