The winner of this years Masters was Patrick Reed with end score of -15. Reed is 27-years-old and this was his first Masters victory for him.

This year for the Masters was amazing. The Masters is an elite tournament which is the highest golf tournament you can ever play in. The Masters were held at the Augusta National Golf Club in the state of Georgia.  Six out of the top ten golfers were American this year. The first place spot was a tough one to get this year with the top, five being -2 points away from one another.

This years purse for the Masters was $11 million dollars. Reed received about $1.98 million dollars for winning. Second place Patrick Fowler received $1.1 million dollars, while third placed Jordan Spieth received $750,000.

The Masters have been around for about 84 years. The whole golf course is about 7,000 yards. For the Masters the winners aren’t given a trophy like many of the other sports that do. They award the winner with a green sport jacket so he can wear it among the other winners from the past. The one condition for receiving the jacket you must return the jacket back to the clubhouse, where they keep it in a well taken care of room.  

The next reward you get for winning the tournament is the Champions dinner. The dinner happens the Tuesday before the tournament begins and only the past champions can attend the dinner.
