The final Masters leaderboard 2018 is as follows…
Patrick Reed has never been viewed as being in the same sort of category as the likes of Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy. On Sunday at Augusta National, Reed put in the sort of performance that any one of those players would have been delighted with.
Passing through Amen Corner, Reed looked up to the leaderboard to see a resurgent Jordan Spieth charging, throwing birdie after birdie, making putt after putt. Spieth was a man on a mission, a man that was hell-bent on revenge after throwing away the Green Jacket only two years ago.
Many would have folded under the pressure, especially those in search of their first major championship, and more significantly, a Green Jacket.
But Reed didn’t blink. Make no mistake, this was an absolute master class in front-running.
