Not many fans were rooting for Patrick Reed at the Masters over the weekend. Despite posting an impressive final score in Augusta, his supporters on the course were few and far between.
One moment in particular is going viral with followers on social media noticing a virtually silent crowd cheering him on following a long putt on the final round.
Reed was incredible this weekend, finishing the tournament at seven strokes under par when his Sunday round wrapped up. The -7 was good enough for a fourth-place finish as he tied with PGA stars Russell Henley and Jordan Spieth.
While on the Tour, Reed became one of the more polar personalities in the sport. He was seemingly always involved in some sort of controversy, whether that be cheating allegations or off-course drama.
The Reed opposition grew stronger after he opted to defect from the PGA and join the LIV Tour.
Whatever PGA following the Augusta State alum had is now gone, and it was evident at the Masters. Despite skyrocketing up the leaderboard with his best round on Sunday, not many were heard rooting Patrick Reed on.
Reed posted a -4 on the last day, and at one point he sank a long putt to keep the momentum going. Had you not seen it, though, you might not have realized it even happened.

The crowd reaction was… underwhelming, to say the least.
The replies in the comments section weren’t much better. Many quickly posted responses to both the shot and their overall feeling towards the golfer.
One person wrote, “Without question THE MOST hated man in golf.,” while another said, “He’s used to that now…”
This follower hilariously commented, “You can hear only the LIV golf fan clap.”
Reed is far from the most liked player in the sport, but it didn’t have much effect over the weekend. His fourth-place finish was the highest at Augusta since his winning the Masters in 2018.
