Tiger Woods finished his Augusta comeback with a 69, to the delight of the patrons and what would be a sign of things to come as he continued to improve ahead of his Tour Championship victory in September, while Paul Casey nearly broke records with a magnificent 65, including two bogeys on 17 and The main event however soon lost its edge as McIlroy started horrifically and failed to mount any real final day challenge and still chasing that career grand slam.
With Reed seemingly running away with it, both Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler both did themselves justice, with the former shooting a 64 with nine birdies to show why he can never be discounted at Augusta.
The Masters was one that went right down to the wire with Spain's Sergio Garcia triumphing over England's Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff after tieing on -9 after 72 holes.
Garcia's birdie on the 1st playoff hole was enough to secure his maiden Major victory and joining the likes of Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria-Olazabal as Spanish winners of the famed Green Jacket.
Garcia's win was a popular one, considered by many to be the best-player-never-to-have-won-a-major, the win was his 1st in 74 attempts.
With 3 previous top's at Augusta, Garcia had shown form but many would've backed Rose who has enjoyed success in recent years at The Masters.
He finished in a tie for 2nd in trying to chase a record-breaking Jordan Spieth as well as a tie for 10th in but was left to rue a missed chance in as Garcia claimed the title.
The win went onto add extra significance for Sergio who named his first-daughter who was born in Azalea, the name of the 13th hole at Augusta National.
Amen Corner claimed another victim as Jordan Spieth faltered with a 7 on the yard par-3 12th and Yorkshire's Danny Willett claimed his first ever Major win.
Willett's bogey-free final round of 67 -5 was good enough for a 3 shot victory over Lee Westwood and Jordan Spieth. With Paul Casey, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Justin Rose finishing in a tie for 4th, 7th and 10th respectively, was a landmark year for English golf at The Masters and looks set to continue for many years to come.
Year after year The Masters provides golf fans with the most exciting final day finishes on the golfing calendar, whilst for some was a little different as Jordan Spieth maintained his 4 shot lead for the majority of the final round, the subplots of Rose, Mickelson and even McIlroy at times provided a Masters that will live long in the memories.
Even the heroics of a resurgent Tiger Woods on Saturday, who wowed the Patrons with a 6-birdie round of 68, couldn't see Spieth shaken.
Having competed in two Masters Tournaments, Spieth has a record of a tie for 2nd finishing 3 shots behind Bubba Watson in and a win, the year old Texan certainly looks like he'll be adding yet more Green Jackets to his wardrobe during the course of his career.
The Masters, it seems, never fails to deliver and in all likelihood will be the tournament to watch. The Masters was started by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones, who designed Augusta National with legendary course architect Alister MacKenzie , but at first one of the world's most famous and beautiful golf courses was nothing more than acres of simple farming land.
After the course was completed, its creators came up with the idea of organizing an annual tournament drawing all the best players from across the world.
For the first five years of the tournament, it was called the Augusta National International Tournament but in , its name changed to The Masters. In line with the other majors, winning the Masters gives a golfer several privileges which make his career more secure.
Masters champions are automatically invited to play in the other three majors the U. They also receive membership on the PGA Tour for the following five seasons and invitations to The Players Championship for five years.
European players collected eleven victories in twenty years in the s and s, by far the strongest streak they have had in any of the three majors played in the United States since the early days of the U.
S Open. Jack Nicklaus became the oldest player to win the Masters in when he won for the sixth time at age In , headlines were made around the world when Tiger Woods won the Masters by twelve shots at age twenty-one.
Jose Maria Olazabal was the last European to win the Masters in Like many other courses, Augusta National's championship set-up has been lengthened in recent years.
In , it measured approximately 6, yards from the Masters tees but in it was almost yards longer at 7, yards.
As well as the course being extended, the teeing positions have been altered. Some experts predict that Augusta may now play as many as three shots more following the changes, which would be approved by Jones and Roberts, whose vision was to challenge the best players in the game of golf.
Augusta National Golf Club is home to what many view as the world's greatest golf course so it is rather fitting that the course, which admittedly has seen many changes throughout its history, was originally designed by the illustrious duo of the world's greatest golfer at the time, Bobby Jones, as well as the game's preeminent course architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie.
In fact, Mackenzie took specific design characteristics from specific holes from such courses, with a handful even thought to be almost direct replicas.
From a design standpoint, many of them have rendered the course in its current guise, from a design standpoint at least, almost unrecognisable when compared to Jones and Mackenzie's original layout.
Originally, both Jones and Dr. Alister MacKenzie believed in creating holes which demanded keen attention to strategy from the player's perspective, with an array of angles from which the hole could be approached.
This notion still rings true at Augusta and while there are certainly advantages to being able to hit specific portions of fairways and greens with acute precision, the course does offer a much different challenge to the one devised by the original architects.
While the overall length and the challenges the course presents have changed significantly since Augusta's early days, one thing remains the same: the main challenges here lie in wait on and around the amazing green complexes which haven't been radically changed over the years.
Tiger Proofing following wins for Woods and Of course, such is the magnitude and sheer volume of changes that have been made to Augusta National over the years, it would be impossible to not them all.
So we've tried as best we can to give a general overview of how Augusta has changed throughout the years, and how the challenge the players face today compares with the one Jones and MacKenzie originally laid down.
While the overall yardages of Augusta National have changed greatly over the years, most notably when the course was "Tiger-Proofed" following the Masters Tiger won again in which begs the question: Why would you lengthen a course to give the field a better chance against the longest hitter at the time?
Another aspect of the course they've left largely untouched is Amen Corner, the most iconic part of the course. Now, it tests accuracy more than it used to.
If the course had stayed the same, they'd be shooting lights out" , said Nicklaus. How have they created a demand for straighter hitting?
The Par 4 1st for example, historically measured yards, and now stretches to to accommodate the modern golf ball and the modern athletic golfer.
In and , additional trees were added to the hole flanking the fairway to punish more errant tee shots, and in , the bunker on the right of the fairway was advanced 15 yards further up the hole to further tighten the landing area.
Further examples of the use of additional trees and tighter fairways, two features that support Nicklaus' notion that you must drive the ball straighter at Augusta in the modern era, can be found at the Par 47th which in its formative years, featured a generous fairway and very few trees to speak of.
These days the hole is a full yards longer and mighty trees line each side of the fairway, placing a real premium on an accurate tee shot.
Like the 7th, the par 4 17th, both very similar holes visually, has seen plenty of new trees added to tighten the tee shot up.
In its formative years the hole almost looked like a driving range such was the sparseness of trees, but following tweaks in and , the hole is now flanked by towering pines, with the tee having also been moved 40 yards further back.
Another fine example comes in the form of the Par 4 18th which has seen plenty of trees planted along the left hand side, as well as the bunkers which the players now see looming large in the distance as they line up their tee shots.
These were added in whereas previously players could bail out to the left. Masters Tickets can be applied for via The Masters Tournament website.
