MASTERS WRAP YOU NEED LUCK TO WIN A GREEN JACKET Every year it seems the man who dons the green jacket gets a little helping hand from the Golfing Gods on the way. Fred Couples’ ball not falling into Rae’s Creek at the 12th hole on his way to winning in 1992 and Larry Mize’s chip-in to slay Greg Norman in 1987 immediately spring to mind. When the dust settles after Patrick Reed’s victory, we’ll look back at one of the key moments in the final round when his run to the green jacket could have derailed. With 186 yards to the flag for his second shot into the par-5 13th hole, Reed’s ball dropped short onto the front fringe and trickled back down the slope towards the water and a likely bogey. Instead, the ball came to a halt on the creek bank within the hazard and left him the chance of getting up and down. Seconds later, Jordan Spieth birdied the 16th to join him in the lead at 14 under. Reed didn’t get up and down but he made his par and didn’t lose any momentum over the closing holes. AMERICANS SEIZE BACK CONTROL ... JUST When Sergio Garcia won the Masters in 2017, only three American players finished in the top-10 on the leaderboard. Led by winner Patrick Reed, the locals filled the top-3 spots (Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth) and added another three (Bubba Watson, Tony Finau and Dustin Johnson) to the mix. This success bodes well for the Americans chances at the Ryder Cup later this year.
