One of his most notable quotes: Regarding Furyk not pairing him with Jordan Spieth, he had this to say to the New York Times:
“The issue’s obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me,” Reed said, adding, “I don’t have any issue with Jordan. When it comes right down to it, I don’t care if I like the person I’m paired with or if the person likes me as long as it works and it sets up the team for success. He and I know how to make each other better. We know how to get the job done.”
But according to an anonymous person who was part of the United States team said Reed didn’t really want to play with Spieth. From the New York Post:
One non-playing member of the U.S. team who was in the team room all week and had intimate knowledge of the goings-on was enraged when he saw Reed complaining about not being paired with Spieth.
“He is so full of (expletive),” the source told The Post on Monday. “Blindsided my ass. He begged to play with Tiger (Woods).’’
Reed did end up playing with Woods, a strong pairing on paper. But that same anonymous source had more to say about Reed’s performance and behavior:
“I watched every shot he hit, and he would have shot 83 on his own ball Saturday,’’ the source said. “He totally screwed Tiger. He has no clue how to play team golf. I saw firsthand how bad of a team player he was. Eleven players understood the concept of team golf and only one didn’t. Unfortunately, that one proved to be too costly for the team to overcome.
“I feel so bad for Jim, because he was an unreal captain.’’
Patrick Reed is a piece of shit. He put himself before the team by demanding to play with Tiger and what happened….Tiger’s back flared up from carrying the fat bastard around the links on Friday.
If you are wondering who this unnamed player is chirping Fatty Reed, it was Zach Johnson, who is as close to Spieth and Thomas as it gets. He also followed their group around all weekend.
Patrick Reed is the most hated player on tour.
This will now continue into 2019.
Leave Tiger alone Reed, go do something and break up DJ and Brooks pillow fight.
Here are a few more tantrums to wet your whistle:
