Better attitude powers Reed to Masters victory

Greater emotional control on the course helped Patrick Reed win the U.S. Masters, his caddie said on Sunday, after the Texan had clinched a one-stroke victory over Rickie Fowler at Augusta National.

Reed's brother-in-law Kessler Karain has been on the bag since 2014, and has noticed a maturation process in the newest member of the major championship club.

Reed's attitude down the years has certainly rubbed some people the wrong way, and his victory, while coveted, will likely come at a cost, namely a loss of privacy.

It will elevate his profile to the point where he is likely to be quizzed much more frequently than previously about his relationship with his parents.

It has been widely reported that Reed, who married young and has two children, is estranged from his parents. Accusations have been traded on social media between Reed's wife Justine and his sister Hannah about the cause.
