The American golfer Patrick Reed has won his first major in the Masters, which was held this week on the historic Augusta National tour. Reed (-15) recovers the green jacket for the Americans, after the victories of the English Danny Willett in 2016 and the Spanish Sergio García in 2017, and equals the feat of his friend and compatriot Jordan Spieth, winner in 2015, who has been third.
The 27-year-old Texan golfer has been on the verge of achieving four rounds (69-66-67-71) below 70 strokes, something that nobody has yet achieved in the history of the Augusta Masters. The Spanish Jon Rahm, meanwhile, finished in fourth place in his second appearance in the Masters.
After resisting everything that the golf elite could throw at him, Patrick Reed is the new champion of the Augusta Masters. The last day of the game witnessed how the 27-year-old Texan overcame the pressure to claim his first major title. Reed got the green jacket in one fell swoop, in one of the most contested victories in the recent history of the masters.
