Patrick Reed storms into Masters lead, Tiger Woods just makes cut

Rory McIlroy

Jordan Spieth offered up a serious challenge with a personal best round at Augusta posting a 64 and looked to be on track to break the course record when he walked down the 18th nine-under par for his round. I could take a stance and just sort of pick the club straight up and get it back down on top of it and just trundle it out through the pine straw and back on to the grass."McIlroy advanced his ball to the edge of the green with his third shot, and then knocked it up within 4 feet of the cup before rolling in the par-saving putt".

"The biggest thing I can pull from it is going head-to-head with Rory and I was able to put together a good round", he said.

Afterward, he said distance control with his irons was not an issue until the tournament started.

The last two rounds have been Tiger Woods falter and Patrick Reed ascend. The four-time Masters champion had three birdies in the opening round, two in the second and three in the third. But at the same time, he's trying to go for the career Grand Slam. "I knew that the lead was going to shrink at some times, and I knew it could grow".

It's essentially a Ryder Cup rematch at Augusta National. Reed chases his first majors and McIlroy, just 3 off Reed, is after a Majors win to make a career Grand Slam.

That's saying something. The Texas senior is the reigning Big 12 Player of the Year and has posted 21 top-10 finishes for the Longhorns, including two wins. He has four birdies and three bogeys. I missed playing major championships.

The final round of the 82 Masters appears to be set up as a match-play duel in the final pairing of Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy.

"I feel like with that kind of fiery side of me, if I'm not playing that kind of golf I feel like if I hit that one shot, I can pump myself up and try to get going", he said.

He was level par at the halfway stage and nine shots off the pace, but leapt up the leaderboard with five successive birdies on the back nine. Spieth lost his two-shot lead on the first hole and was on the verge of getting left behind until he made a key par putt to close out the front nine with a 40, and then salvaged a 74 to join McIlroy just five shots behind.

Here was the lengthy putt on No. 16 that at the time tied him with Reed for the lead.

"It was probably also one of the most exhausting matches we ever played", Reed said.

His errant ways left him starting a lot sooner than expected and will have him finishing shortly after the leaders tee off Sunday afternoon.

Reed and McIlroy met in the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, when the U.S. firebrand edged Europe's McIlroy 1 up in an epic clash.

Spaniard Jon Rahm shot 69 and finished fourth at -11 after he faltered over the last four holes. He shot 72, was 18 shots behind and now hopes to finish the tournament under par. Fowler capped his round with a seven-foot birdie putt that prompted the loudest roar of the day among the patrons at the 18th green.

Tiger Woods finally shot a round in the 60s, but his 69 was only enough to get him to one-over for the tournament, and a tie with Scott for 32nd.

"It's as special of a week for my family as it is for me", Doug said, "and I understand how important it is to them as well and to be able to celebrate with them this week and tonight is going to be something that I'll never forget".
