Mas­ters champ not mas­ter of his own house

WHY do some chil­dren, when they reach the so-called age of rea­son, get es­tranged from their par­ents?

I ask that again af­ter learn­ing that Patrick Reed is one of them.

Reed, to those not yet in the know, has just crowned him­self the Mas­ters cham­pion in Au­gusta, Ge­or­gia.

In vic­tory, Reed has now be­come a hot can­di­date to win golf’s Grand Slam, which is the rare feat of see­ing one sweep all four ma­jors of the year to in­clude the Bri­tish Open, U.S. Open and the PGA Cham­pi­onship.

Only five own that dis­tinct honor to in­clude the re­tired Jack Nick­laus (all-time best of 18 ma­jors won) and the sud­denly res­ur­rected Tiger Woods (14 ma­jors).
