McIlroy takes playful jab at Reed

Rory McIlroy took a playful jab at Patrick Reed when asked of his pairing with the three-time PGA Tour winner and Jordan Spieth in the first two rounds of the Masters. The trio tees off at 10:52 Thursday morning. On Friday, they tee off last at 1:59 p.m.

After winning the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship last month, Reed claimed he was a top-five player in the world. Entering the Masters, McIlroy is No. 9 in the Official World Golf Rankings, followed by Spieth (No. 13) and Reed (No. 23).

"There's not going to be any top-5 players in that group," McIlroy quipped. "They're going to be playing their first Masters and I feel like the veteran."

McIlroy is making his sixth Masters appearance. His best finish came in 2011 when he tied for 15th place.
