It’s the last round the Masters on Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Players have been on the course since the early morning, and the leaders are filtering through as the afternoon continues.
Masters updates on Sunday
All times are Eastern:
6:36 p.m.: Patrick Reed sinks a par putt to take home the green jacket. Hell of a round for him, finishing 15-under.
6:31 p.m.: Rickie Fowler finishes his round with a birdie on 18 to move him to 14-under, one back from Patrick Reed. Unless Reed royally messes up on 18, the green jacket is his.
6:00 p.m.: Jordan Spieth has had a lightning back nine, par on 14, then came to back-to-back birdies on 15 and 16 before a par on 17. Hole 18 might have cost him the green jacket — he bogeyed after missing a putt for par that was just off the mark. He couldn’t even believe he missed it:
A few things just happened. Spieth missed this putt for par on 18 and had to settle for bogey to close out his round at -8. he now is 2 strokes back of Reed. We’ll be keeping our eyes on reed as he is just now teeing off on 16 at #themasters pic.twitter.com/xNZu4xWF1E— Kappa Sigma CMU (@CMUKappaSigma) April 8, 2018
The problem for Spieth happened on his tee shot — he hit the top of the trees which made it go way short, a whole 267 yards to the hole.
Had his tee shot gone further, he could have potentially made birdie, but was set up nicely for par regardless.
4:42 p.m: WELL. Things are getting fun y’all. Remember Jordan Spieth’s past demons at the par-3 12th? Those are gone now. He just dropped home a MASSIVE putt from off the green there to get to 11-under. He’s now just three behind Patrick Reed, and we’re hunting history — both the course record and record for biggest comeback ever are in play.
Oh, hey, we’ve also got our first ace of the week. Chuck Hoffman on 16!
4:20 p.m.: Jordan Spieth and Jon Rahm remain tied for third at 10-under. Patrick Reed moves back to 14-under after a birdie on hole seven. Rory McIlroy is still at 11-under.
4:02 p.m.: Rory McIlroy moves to two back behind Patrick Reed, who is at 13-under. Meanwhile Jordan Spieth is coming alive with birdies on 8 and 9 to move to 10-under — joining him with a birdie on 7 is Rickie Fowler. This last round should be fun, folks!
3:45 p.m.: Patrick Reed is at 14-under with Rory McIlroy two strokes back at 12-under. Jon Rahm moves to third at 9-under, with Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth tied for fourth at 8-under. Pal Casey continues to dominate the back nine, and he’s tied for sixth at 7-under.
3:25p.m.: Patrick Reed sinks a birdie putt on three to move to 14-under. Rory McIlroy goes back to 11-under after a bogey on three. back to where we started, folks! Paul Casey is having a heck of a round, and he moves to 8-under after three birdies and an eagle on holes 11-14.
3:07 p.m.: Rory McIlroy makes birdie on two to move to 12-under, just one back. Patrick Reed has to settle for par after missing a birdie putt. Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler are both tied for third at 9-under through two.
