President Donald Trump took a moment to congratulate Patrick Reed on a “great and courageous Masters win” on Sunday evening.

According to ESPN, “Reed never flinched throughout a raucous afternoon at Augusta National” to become the Masters champion.

ESPN reports: Rory McIlroy came after him early. Jordan Spieth roared to life with a final-round charge and briefly caught Reed with a 35-foot birdie putt. The last challenge came from Rickie Fowler, who birdied the last hole to leave Reed no room for error.

They continue: Clinging to a 1-shot lead, his 25-foot putt down the slippery slope on the 18th green ran 3 feet by the hole as Reed pressed down both hands, begging it to stop. From there, the 27-year-old Texan calmly rolled in the par putt for a 1-under 71 and a 1-shot victory.

Trump applauded the win, writing: Congratulations to Patrick Reed on his great and courageous MASTERS win! When Patrick had his amazing win at Doral 5 years ago, people saw his great talent, and a bright future ahead. Now he is the Masters Champion!
