Masters Winner Patrick Reed

The 2018 Masters provided a world-class leaderboard and plenty of final round thrills on Sunday but in the end, San Antonio born Patrick Reed would outlast them all to win his first major championship.

http://dustinhallphotography.com/ashley-brendan-at-st-marks-place-in-lahave/ Patrick Reed is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and the European Tour.  He is notable for his victories in the 2018 Masters Tournament and the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship. He represented the United States in Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup competitions.

Patrick Reed was 20 years old when he turned professional in 2011 after the NCAA Championship. In June, he played in his first PGA Tour event, the FedEx St. Jude Classic, where he missed the cut. Reed played two more events in 2011, earning just over $20,000. He played two events on the Nationwide Tour and earned just over $5,000.

In 2012 Reed played in 12 events on the PGA Tour on sponsors exemptions and through Monday qualifying (six times). He made seven cuts and earned over $300,000. His best finish was T-11 at the Frys.com Open. He finished T-22 at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament, after entering at the First Stage, to earn his PGA Tour card for 2013.

He picked up his first top-10 finish at the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. On August 18, Reed became the 12th first-time PGA Tour winner of the year with his victory at the Wyndham Championship in a playoff against Jordan Spieth. His win at Sedgefield Country Club also marked his third consecutive top-10 finish.

At the 2014 Humana Challenge, Reed set the PGA Tour record for most strokes under par after 54 holes. His rounds of 63-63-63, were 27-under-par. The tournament’s first three rounds are played on three different courses. The previous record was 25-under-par, set by Gay Brewer at the 1967 Pensacola Open and tied by Ernie Els at the 2003 Mercedes Championships, Pat Perez at the 2009 Bob Hope Classic (the previous name of the Humana event) and Steve Stricker at the 2010 John Deere Classic. All four other players won those tournaments. It was also the first time in PGA Tour history that a player opened a tournament with three rounds of 63 or better. Reed won the tournament by two strokes over Ryan Palmer.

On March 9, 2014, Reed earned his biggest win to date with a victory in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida. He earned $1.53 million with the one-shot win over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson. Reed became only the fifth golfer to earn three PGA Tour wins before his 24th birthday since 1990, joining Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Sergio García. Jordan Spieth subsequently achieved that feat. Reed is the youngest winner of a WGC event, and the victory also moved him to 20th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Reed was also the first PGA Tour golfer to have three wins before playing in his first major, the 2014 Masters. That same year Reed finished 5th at the Volvo World Match Play Championship.

On January 12, 2015, Reed won his fourth PGA Tour title at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions by defeating Jimmy Walker in a sudden death playoff.  He became just the fourth player in the last two decades to win four times on the PGA Tour before his 25th birthday, the other three were Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Sergio Garcia. The win moved Reed to a career-best OWGR ranking of 14th.[12] Also, he finished second at the Valspar Championship, third at the Hero World Challenge, and seventh at the Honda Classic. Reed also joined the European Tour for the 2015 season.

On August 28, 2016, Reed won the first FedEx Cup playoff event, The Barclays played at Bethpage Black. This was his fifth victory on the PGA Tour and first FedEx Cup event win. He went into the final round in the last grouping, one stroke behind the leader Rickie Fowler. He carded a final round of one-under-par to take a one stroke victory over Emiliano Grillo and Sean O’Hair. The win vaulted Reed to the top of the FedEx Cup standings from 7th position ahead of Jason Day. He also automatically qualified for the Ryder Cup team with this victory.

After the second FedEx Cup playoff event, the Deutsche Bank Championship, Reed extended his lead to 556 points over Day, with a top-10 finish.

2017 On the final day of the PGA Championship, Reed had three birdies on the back to get to within a shot of the lead, but bogeyed the 18th after finding a fairway bunker off the tee and tied for second, two strokes behind winner Justin Thomas.

2018 Reed shot 69–66 to lead the Masters by two strokes after two rounds. He followed up that performance with two eagles on the back nine for a 67 on Saturday. Entering the final round, he led the Masters by three strokes over Rory McIlroy. On Sunday, he fought off the final round comeback of Jordan Spieth to win the tournament, shooting 71 (-1) for a tournament total of -15. Reed earned a paycheck for $1.98 million.
