And someone starting up those roars was Jordan Spieth.
"Today was definitely probably the hardest mentally a round of golf could possibly be", he said.
It seemed like a good story considering he went to college in Augusta, Georgia, the site of the tournament, but many are not aware of his past, and exactly how he got to Augusta State in the first place.
Patrick Reed has won his first major championship with a thrilling one-shot victory over Rickie Fowler at the Masters. The year's first major tournament telecast ranked highest in the Minneapolis-St. "It was really satisfying".
But with Reed in the driver's seat in search of his first-ever major win, he won't be wearing the colors fans have grown accustomed to seeing him in on Sundays. That's all I wanted to do.
Reed shot a 2-under, 70, to finish at 15-under, one stroke ahead of Rickie Fowler and two shots ahead of Jordan Spieth.
"Glad I at least made the last one, make him earn it", Fowler said with a grin as he waited to greet the newest major champion. He did just that, rolling a 25-foot putt down the scary slope on the final green, then calmly sinking the putt to win. It instead hit the back of the cup, as Woods would settle for a nine-foot birdie. He sank the comeback effort and pumped his fist in celebration.
'It's nearly impossible to put into words, ' Reed said, moments before donning the green jacket for the first time. "I was glad to end the drought".
McIlroy, seeking the win he needs to become just the sixth player to complete the career grand slam, was just a shot off the lead after two holes but faded badly with a closing 74. "I pushed myself pretty hard to get ready". "When I did have opportunities I didnt take advantage of them".
"I am leading", he said.
USA president Donald Trump congratulated Reed, who won a 2014 WGC event at Trump-owned Doral, although Trump mistakenly cited it as in 2013.
The Masters never lack in excitement, and it was no different in 2018. Coming into the year one of my biggest goals was to win a major and compete in golf tournaments.
But after opening the tournament with three straight rounds in the 60s Reed had everyone's attention.
Last year, he demonstrated the talent people have been talking about for so long by shooting a 67 on the second day, putting himself in contention, but the time day four rolled around, he wilted under the pressure and shot a dismal 76 and 4-over par, giving away all the ground he had made up on the day he made the cut.
Spieth said he was so far back after two lacklustre days with his renowned putter that he just put his head down and tried to have fun. He kept it up throughout his round and on the 18th green, actually had a putt for a 63, which would have tied the course record.
Spieth was only the seventh player to shoot 64 in the last round, the first since Bo Van Pelt in 2012.
Well, according to the Official World Rankings right now, absolutely not.
His errant ways left him starting a lot sooner than expected and will have him finishing shortly after the leaders tee off Sunday afternoon.
"I started the round nine shots back and I came out with the idea of just playing the golf course and having a lot of fun doing it and try to shoot a low round and finish the tournament strong and see what happens, if something insane happens".
