The leaderboard entering Moving Day was loaded, and that’s still the case. Patrick Reed held serve and even gained ground on the field, posting an impressive 5-under 67 to enter Sunday with a three-shot lead. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm all shot 7-under Saturday, and Tommy Fleetwood went 6-under to move into a tie for sixth place. We saw amazing golf from a lot of players Saturday; the question is whether that matters with Reed’s large lead.
Looking at the history of the Masters, it’s not common for players to really make up ground on Sunday. The last winner to be outside of the top 5 entering Sunday was Nick Faldo (T9) in 1989. The three biggest Sunday comebacks: eight shots in 1956, six shots in 1996, and four shots in 2011. Rory was the unlucky leader in 2011 to be caught. Now, he’ll try to come back from three down tomorrow. If Fowler, Rahm, or any other player wins, it’ll go down as one of the three greatest Sunday comebacks in Masters history. Saddle up.
Betting Angles for Sunday
By Joshua Perry
Reed is a +120 favorite, with McIlroy (+185) not far behind. Fowler (+700) and Rahm (+1400) are just close enough at five and six shots back to keep this from being a true two-horse race. Who’s offering the best value?
