Patrick Reed fired a 67 today to take a 3 stroke lead over Rory McIlroy at the Masters golf tournament.

Golf at its finest was played today in Augusta Georgia. Patrick Reed was one of several players who had a hot putter.

Reed finished strong by making eagles on both par 5’s on the back nine holes. Lucky for the rest of the field he had a few bogies today or the fat lady might have had to dust off her vocal chords early!

Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, & Jon Rahm all fired incredible 65’s today.

Putts were going in from everywhere especially for Fowler who has a knack for dropping 40 footers.

Rory McIlroy is all alone in 2nd place at -11 under par and looking to complete the career grand slam. Who knew that Captain America…..

Patrick Reed would be pulling out all stops today.

Any other Masters and Rory would have a comfortable lead going into Sunday’s final round.

I know we are all excited to have a rematch of the Ryder Cup when Reed and McIlroy took it deep and Patrick Reed ended up winning the match one up.

The only problem with Sunday’s final round is Patrick Reed has a 3 stroke advantage.

I don’t think we will see Reed fold like a cheap suit tomorrow. Seriously am wondering though, if Rory can shoot another 65, maybe a sudden death playoff?

The weather was forecasted to be a lot worse today and all they had was a little rain.

That he,led the greens become a little more receptive. Notice I said a little more because with the sub-air system that they have at Augusta National those greens can be dried out quickly.

That is what we are going to see Sunday, fast and hard greens, tough pin placements, and a Rickie Fowler charge.

I just hope Rickie can charge and go low enough to knock this guys out of the lead. It is going to go down in the History books as one of the greatest Masters ever played.

    If history has taught us anything, then holding a 3 shoot lead heading into the final round of the Masters is nothing.If memory serves me Norman had a six shot lead in the 1996 Masters….

      You’re right, I was there in 1996 when Faldo charged into a win…..
