A Pissed Off Patrick Reed Tore Into Jordan Spieth After Team USA’s Pathetic Ryder Cup Performance
Team USA went in the 2018 Ryder Cup with high expectations (which should be kind of a given) but quickly had their hopes and dreams dashed after a dominant performance by the Europeans, who burst out of the gate on Day One and didn’t look back.
When everything was said and done, the Americans lost the tournament by a final score of 17.5-10.5 in a weekend that didn’t have many positive moments.
In fact, I’d argue only the real highlight occurred off the course when Phil Mickelson did what Mac has tried and failed to do over 13 seasons of It’s Always Sunny by using a sick spin kick to knock a water bottle off of Zach Johnson’s head.
Masters champion Patrick Reed had a rough start to the tournament on Saturday and reacted in the most Patrick Reed way possible.
Reed did manage to win his inconsequential singles match and showed he actually has a sense of humor by mocking his own behavior at the 2016 Ryder Cup in an impressive moment of self-awareness.
However, Reed transformed back into his typical self after things officially wrapped up.
During an interview with the New York Times, the golfer revealed his 2016 Ryder Cup partner Jordan Spieth was somehow responsible for his underwhelming performance, saying:
“The issue’s obviously with Jordan not wanting to play with me. 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.”
Reed was instead paired with Tiger Woods, who failed to find his groove and ended up going 0-4 on the weekend.
I guess you can chalk this up to Reed being Reed but he’s certainly not helping himself if he’s looking to increase the number of friends he has on the PGA Tour from zero.
