Patrick Reed held off a tumultuous final-round charge from Jordan Spieth and a late rally from Rickie Fowler to clinch Masters glory as Rory McIlroy suffered further heartbreak at Augusta National.

With McIlroy out of the running after missing a series of short putts, Spieth came from nine behind at the start to earn a share of the lead with Reed when he rolled in his ninth birdie putt of a potentially record-breaking round at the 16th.

But a costly bogey at the last gifted valuable breathing space to overnight leader Reed, whose one-under 71 was enough to claim his maiden major title by one stroke from Fowler – the fourth first-time major winner in succession at Augusta.
