As promised, the final round at the 2018 Majors was one you simply couldn't take your eyes off. In the end, it was the golfer who started today in the lead that eventually saw it out; Patrick Reed.

Looking like a straight battle between the opening leaders Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy initially, when both began to flounder, the 2015 winner Jordan Spieth began to look like a surprise victor.

Yet, even that didn't last as the famously trying back 9 at Augusta found another victim.

While Reed steadied himself, McIlroy continued to flounder; by the time they hit they'd hit the 15th, McIlroy had slipped to 2 over for the round, and six shots behind the leader Reed.


Making sure that any back nine calamity from Reed would be capitalised upon, Rickie Fowler and John Rahm kept the pressure well and truly on also; Fowler's 14 under finish a highly impressive performance.

In the end however, it would be the somewhat divisive Reed would see it out and claim his first green jacket, and his first major - to a swell of approval, and no small amount of bile.


Here was that winning putt.

However, from a day that had held so much hope that McIlroy could carve out his career Grand Slam, a reaction to his relative collapse was expected.
