The lush Georgia landscape hosted the Masters Tournament this weekend where all golfers played exceedingly well, considering how difficult the course usually is. Even the amateur Doug Ghim played extremely well, with an amazing shot out of the sand and into the cup. He finished shooting 8 over 296. The young player from The University of Texas at Austin was the first amateur player with two eagles in the Masters as well.

Continuing on to Jordan Spieth, he had one hell of a start to the tournament with birdies and eagles galore on the opening round. As a former Masters champion, this start was not surprising. In the end, however, he was not able to maintain that incredible start and fell to 3rd place. Still a respectable showing for the former champion. But he had to have the most memorable shot of the tournament when he skipped his ball across the water on the 16th hole and came within a mere few feet of the pin. Well played Jordan, well played.The most ostentatiously confident moment we saw though was when Fred Couples hit his shot on the 12th hole, out of the bunker and walked away knowing it was going to go in. These guys are on an entirely different level than us when we go out and play putt-putt at Steve the Clown's Discount Putt Putt Emporium.

Patrick Reed. What can we say about him? He nabbed the lead and got into a zone where he was practically untouchable. As he battled it out with Fowler, Spieth, and McIlroy, Patrick seemed to thrive when the pressure was on and continued to pour on the heat till the very last hole. All he needed was a par. Just like he'd done the whole week, he was the Iceman, no mistakes. Solid consistent play that earned him the 2018 Masters title.Congratulations to Patrick Reed!
