Well, Patrick Reed is a major champion. Alternatingly derided as golf's anti-hero and Captain America--a bizarre combination, since Captain America is literally a hero--the Masters riffs on last year's Sergio Garcia victory with a figure exponentially more...complex.

If you'd prefer to keep your head in the sand and root for the gritty competitor you see inside the ropes, very well.
