Off the Tee: 2018 Masters Recap
It's a tournament that brings in the best players from around the globe, but in the end it was the local boy who was slipping on the green jacket at the 2018 Masters.
Augusta, Georgia native Patrick Reed shot a blistering 14-under par thru the first three days of The Masters and then hung on Sunday (April 8) to card 11 pars, four birdies, and three bogeys to hold off Rickie Fowler by one-shot to secure his first major win.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf and I talk about how the 2018 Masters unfolded and who's walking away with their heads held high and who's kicking themselves over missed opportunities at Augusta National.
Joel and I discuss:
- Reed's clutch putting when it mattered most
- Fowler's back-nine charge to finish in the top five for the fifth straight major
- Jordan Spieth's final round 65, which could have been a record setter for low round at Augusta if he'd holed a few short putts
- Rory Mcilroy's final round struggles, which started with a misfire off the first tee and was followed up by a series of missed putts
- Jon Rahm's run to get him to within three-shots of the lead before his infamous temper got the best of him
- Tony Finau's dramatic recovery from a dislocated ankle during a botched celebration during the the Par Three Tournament to finish in the top ten, Sunday
- Defending champ Sergio Garcia's opening round 13 on the 15th hole, after hitting five straight shots into the water
- Tiger Woods' one-over-par finish and his impact on TV viewership of The Masters
