"Progressing" Tiger Woods to take his usual post-Masters break

Rory McIlroy

AUGUSTA, Georgia-It wasn't the collapse from seven years earlier, far from it.

They say a Green Jacket costs around $250, though no one who knows will confirm that.

So many anticipated a battle between Rory McIlroy and Reed in the final pairing on Sunday.

But, once again, McIlroy's putter cooled off, and he fell flat when it mattered most.

Then fortune shined on him when his approach to the par-5 13th from 186 yards stayed on the bank fronting the green instead of rolling into Rae's Creek and Reed made par. Jordan Spieth ran off four birdies in five holes to tie for the lead, and Reed answered with a birdie on the 14th.

Woods missed greens right and left, never really getting approach shots in the flawless spots on treacherous greens.

- Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless)Oh yeah, & I'm sure I've lost weight due to all the walking! I don't necessarily see him as someone that backs up and will let you come back into the tournament. "You go to a Ryder Cup and you feel like you have a whole nation on your back".

What you learn about yourself through experiences on the course, Guzzi said, is that you can execute under the gun. "He's got to go out and protect that, and he's got a few guys chasing him that are pretty big-time players". But it just wasn't enough. That included Jon Rahm, the 23-year-old from Spain, whose chances ended when he went after the flag on the par-5 15th and came up short in the water. McIlroy watched an errant tee shot at the final hole ricochet back into the fairway, setting up a birdie that could have easily been a bogey.

McIlroy, three shots back and playing in the final pair with Reed, had to get off to a quick start and he did just that, chopping two shots off the deficit in just two holes.

IndiGo Airlines offloads 'aggressive' doctor who complained of mosquitoes

Speaking of Singh, he shot an ugly 79 that put him in the first group of the final round.

"It's the last round of a major championship, and we're both going for...", McIlroy said, clearly confident after his third round. "To win your first major is never going to be easy, and it definitely wasn't easy today". But it's still fun, and Tiger's return will help popularize faces the average sports fan might not otherwise recognize. It was Reed who would handle the pressure for his first major win, not the Irish player with four major titles already in his display case.

"I made P. Reed earn it", Fowler said when it was over.

He'd spent 16 hours on the course practising for every single situation that could arise during Masters week before the tournament week had even begun. Unlike that showdown, where Reed was backed by a huge crowd chanting "USA, USA", McIlroy was the favorite among the final-day crowd.

"Obviously I want to be the one standing on top after the four rounds", Fowler said in his presser afterwards. "I made too many mistakes".

He said after his 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship victory in 2014 that he thought he was a world top-5 player, which he now isn't - he's ranked 11th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The 14-time major champion, who insisted as he set out to close a 13-shot deficit on Saturday that he was looking for a "special weekend", opened with back-to-back bogeys on the way to a 72. "I was happy to make that last putt".

"I feel like I'm hitting the ball well enough, I feel like I'm putting well enough". "You look at what Jordan [Spieth] and Rickie [Fowler] did". At least. The point is, you have to ride your breaks when you get them. Patrick and I didn't at all. Woods shot even par on Saturday to remain in 40th place after the third round. We've actually got quite a good relationship.
