Quick Roundup: Patrick Reed Wins The 2018 Masters


We've got a ShackHouse in the can that should push overnight and I'll be on Morning Drive to discuss a sensational Masters which, I believe, lived up to the hype. 

Patrick Reed won't be the most popular champion on a day Rickie Fowler came excruciatingly close to winning his first major, Jordan Spieth played possibly the best round of his career until a branch intervened, and Rory McIlroy missed an opportunity to be a career Grand Slam winner.

Eamon Lynch considers what makes Reed a worthy, if complicated winner. 

Ryan Lavner is well versed in the Reed backstory and does a lovely job summing up the day and the mixed-feelings about the win.

I penned a few conclusions and assessments of the week for Fowler, McIlroy, Spieth and Rahm.
