The 2018 Masters are about to enter its final day. The fourth and final round of this year's tournament will tee off shortly.

The man leading the tournament, Patrick Reed, will not be teeing off until much later in the day. He's in the final group with Rory McIlroy. Those two will go off just before 3 p.m. E.T.

Reed, a 27-year-old golfer from Texas, is seeking his first major championship. He finished second in the PGA Championship last year and his best previous in The Masters was a T-22 finish in 2015.

Off the course, the star golfer is married to Justine Reed. The couple was married in 2012.

Justine actually served as Reed's caddie on the PGA Tour early in his career. It was a great bonding experience for the two. She gave it up after becoming pregnant and Reed gave the bag to her brother, Kessler.

“We were wondering how the transition would be,” Patrick told PGA.com. “I trained him like I trained Justine. I guess it just runs in the family. He was really good when it came to wind and club selection. She played a little bit in high school, and her brother played a lot in high school. I don’t know what it is. That family has it when it comes to giving me advice.”

Justine still helps Patrick a lot with his game, going over strategy before every tournament. Golf.com detailed how serious it is:

Before every tournament Justine still plots strategy with Patrick hole by hole, and afterward she debriefs him about errant shots. She rarely misses a practice session and is in regular contact with Patrick’s swing coach, Kevin Kirk.

The couple has two kids together.

The final round of the 2018 Masters is set to begin its full television coverage at 2 p.m. E.T. on CBS. You can also watch online at masters.com.
