Reed is one of them, a 27-year-old Texan with a chip on his shoulder and a Green Jacket in his wardrobe.
The four-times victor on the PGA Tour has now finished in a share of fifth place or better in eight majors, with three of those second-place finishes, though never before had he been as close to the eventual victor as he was on Sunday. If anything, it made the course softer and more playable as three golfers, Rory McIlroy, Ricky Fowler and Jon Rahm, each shot 65s, the lowest scores in this year's tournament.
Reed appeared understandably nervy at times on the front nine, registering bogeys at the first and sixth, although gains at three and seven ensured he stayed out in front.
Despite all that, he finished tied for fifth. Everyone knows you have it physically, with the talent, but do you have it mentally? "Can you handle the ups and downs throughout the round?"
McIlroy was lucky to remain in bounds and even more fortunate to have a clean shot, the 28-year-old finding a greenside bunker with his approach and saving par. Both had shaky starts, though, and McIlroy had a shakier finish.
Reed yanked his tee shot at the par-4 first left and into pine straw. "I had a hard time just sitting or walking".

Patrick Reed is Captain America and now he is the Masters champion as well. Despite being a key part of the United States Ryder Cup equation, Reed has never been embraced by fans. The fans, yes, were cheering for me, but some of them were cheering more for Rory. "I was nine back, going out I knew I needed significant help no matter how well I played".
But Reed's victory was not just the result of his steely resolve and poise under pressure.
Spieth, the 2015 champion, recorded a 64 but hit a bogey on the 18th to leave Fowler as the clubhouse leader. "To actually finally be sitting down and have my first major be the green jacket, and to be able to sit here wearing it, it's a surreal moment for me and it's something that I'll never forget". One can only hope that it will come for him, like it came for Sergio Garcia, like it came for Phil Mickelson (people tend to forget that Lefty had been on tour for well over a decade before he landed the 2004 Masters). It instead hit the back of the cup, as Woods would settle for a nine-foot birdie.
Woods closed with a flurry, shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round and finishing at 1-over 289 for the tournament.
He was so close that he had a short eagle putt that could have tied him for the lead on the second hole.
"Patrick, he's not scared".

The Rockies home opener is today , temperatures will be in th 30s and falling through the game with light snow very likely. Presently, I would say accumulation will be on the lighter side on the coastline because of where we are in April .
Raised with the modern power game, the under-30 crew have a fearless, aggressive mentality. He won't back down.
"I think 100% I can come back and win here", he said. But you don't have to like him. His brother-in-law now holds Reed's caddy position is also still close in Reed's life.
After being kicked off his team at the #University Of Georgia, Reed chose to move on to Augusta State.
ESPN reports that Reed was kicked off of his college team due to cheating allegations on the course and, alcohol-fueled misbehavior, and multiple arrests for being intoxicated. He is estranged from his parents and sister, who have denied his claims of having been abused.
"Whether it be mindset or whatever, I just didn't quite have it today".
