AUGUSTA, Ga. – Patrick Reed was closing in on a Green Jacket and his first major title after overcoming an unsteady start to hold a two-shot lead over a hard-charging Jordan Spieth heading into the back nine of the U.S. Masters on Sunday.

The final round began with Reed holding a three shot advantage over Rory McIlroy but at the turn it was Spieth, the 2015 Masters champion, leading the chase after going seven-under through his opening 13 holes.

In four Masters appearances, Spieth also has two runner-up finishes and a tie for 11th last year.
