Reed show toughness in Masters victory

Well, it's piffle and poppycock. Instead, Reed just went out there and played.
History was at stake, along with the green jacket.
Us humans don't like the smell of luck. It all evens out in the end.
He finished equal 32nd on Sunday and was barely an after-thought at Augusta National as three players in their 20s battled for the Green Jacket.
"I think when you're playing in the final group of a major there's always going to be pressure", he said.
"I gave it my all", Fowler said Sunday. Only he couldn't. Every time the devil hit a ideal shot, but a gust of wind blew it off course. It wasn't Reed's fault that McIlroy couldn't buy a putt. The boy has the devil's own luck.
He prefers to wear black trousers and a red shirt on Sunday, though that was scrapped when Nike wanted its clients (except Woods) to wear a fuchsia shirt for the final day at the Masters.
"I just left The Masters! Wyd??"
The 27-year-old from Texas helped Augusta State win two NCAA titles and his parents still live in the area, but he has been estranged from them for several years and was described by his sister Hannah as a "selfish, disgusting stranger" in a Facebook post in 2016. He's your 2018 Masters champion.
Make no mistake, despite being healthy again, Woods is no longer "the man".
Was he thrown out of college for doing a deal with the devil?
Reed was also accused of cheating on the course by his teammates.
Spieth shot an 8-under 64 in the final round and finished at 13 under, two shots behind leader Patrick Reed. According to Ryan, Reed did not invite his parents to his wedding, and some posts on social media from his family seem to hint at a rift.
He had it all, except the affection that appears to be harder to find than the wide fairways of Augusta National.
Woods wore red, of course, but it only peeped through the black. "I just didn't quite have it". The Woods coverage can get "ridiculous", she said.
Well, we appreciate you joining us throughout the week here on The Masters Life.
Reed never flinched through it all.
The talented Texan was in high spirits after holding off the challenges of Ryder Cup team-mates Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth to win the first major his career. The thinking is that we'll next be seeing him at Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo in three weeks followed by the Players Championship, an event he's won twice (most recently in 2013, just as his body was beginning to break down with injuries).
"You know that once you're successful, there's going to be good things and bad things that people say and, honestly, to me it doesn't really matter". "Who is this guy?'"
Spieth says that Reed won't just play the match for the sake of it, but it's about "sticking the knife in". This is not a brother anymore, but a selfish, terrible stranger and it's heartbreaking ... I'm nearly starting to feel sorry for the man. It must be terribly lonely to be so disliked.
Reed is part of the youth movement, primarily because of his age (27).
Both Reed and McIlroy hit errant drives at the opening hole but, while Reed dropped a shot, McIlroy saved his par.
Finally, a Tweet from Reed wearing Notre Dame gear during the Irish's game against UGA in 2017 put Dawg fans over the edge. Just because you admire and respect someone's supreme talent doesn't mean they are likeable. "Can you handle the ups and downs throughout the round?"
Tony Finau made a scene. But if you see some of the negativity surrounding Reed this weekend on social media, now you'll understand some of the resentment. Is this the same God that stuck out a limb, "one limb", he wailed, and struck down Spieth's ball on the 18th?
They are at 14 under, two shots ahead of Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler.
"Definitely growing up everybody dreams about winning the Masters", he said.
