Patrick Reed's parents go through highs, lows of son's Masters win

Rickie Fowler came closer than ever to major championship glory at the U.S. Masters on Sunday and now the American, instilled with a newfound belief that his day will come, can not wait for his next shot.

That's still 20 months away in Australia and on nobody's mind except for Woods', mainly because he's the USA captain for the 2019 matches.

But it was in the NY area at last year's Presidents Cup - in which the USA plays an worldwide team - that Love really noticed Reed's attention to detail.

If he wasn't already a lock, he is now.

That duel with the Northern Irishman went down in Ryder Cup folklore, the pair going head-to-head and leading to Reed's memorable finger wagging in McIlroy's direction.

In 2014, he described himself as one of the top five players in the world aged just 23, despite having never played in a major in his life. Plays two more events on top tier in 2011, and two on Nationwide Tour.

"I was ready to go win", he said. His record was even more suspect at the Masters.

They love him in red, white and blue. Patrick Reed, 27, born in San Antonio, Texas took home the green jacket with a one-stroke win over Rickie Fowler. "It's nice that he's on our team".

Armed with a three-shot lead after 54 holes, Reed, the fiery, confrontational raging bull, channeled his emotions, held his nerve and called upon his considerable golf skills to withstand a host of the game's best players on a tense, wild Masters Sunday that had the staff handling the famous white scoreboards working overtime.

That didn't do any good.

Reed was rock solid under the pressure, though, and whenever one of his rivals for the title moved into striking distance, he was able to respond. All week, he said he couldn't play better.

Going into the first major of this year, was it going to be another repeat for Fowler? When he said the pressure was all on Reed, it was a sign McIlroy was feeling the pressure. "He's got to go out and protect that, and he's got a few guys chasing him who are pretty big-time players".

"He's not scared. I think you guys have seen that previous from the Ryder Cups and the way he plays", said Fowler, who closed with a 67. Because all that leader did was save a dicey par on 13 to stay at 14-under and grab one final birdie on the 14th to seal the win.

Maybe that's why when he turned on the television Sunday morning with a three-shot lead, he heard plenty of flattering observations about his game without anyone thinking he was going to win. She caddies for him for the first two years on Tour before pregnancy. He seems to be more grounded.

They won't forget him now. Long ago, at age 22, the place humiliated him with a back-nine 40 as he blew a four-shot lead.

"He made a lot of those grinding par putts that meant a lot and paid dividends in the end, obviously", Karain said. Fowler finished at 14 under, while Spieth, the 2015 Masters victor, finished at 14 under. Despite making par, and the birdie at the second getting the crowd on their feet, consistency was the issue. He lamented his iron play for the fourth straight day and loathed two three-putts, including one for bogey on No. 18. You know it can be done. But do you have it mentally?

This tournament did not rise to that level, but it was fairly exciting and interesting, with the usual share of ups and downs.

This one shouldn't require much explanation, it was just Reed doing what had to be done.

He tweeted: "Congratulations to Patrick Reed on his great and courageous MASTERS win!"

McIlroy has more time on his side, but the sooner he does it, the better. "Be stubborn", he once said about learning by watching Woods. "Just be you. Play golf. And that's what I'm trying to do".
