Patrick Reed returns to China for a second appearance in the UBS Hong Kong Open played over the traditional layout at Hong Kong GC.
Four rounds in the 60s on his Fanling debut (68-69-65-67) saw Reed coast into T3 last year, although he was six shots back of the winner Justin Rose. Soon afterwards he added two more top tens in China (BMW Masters, HSBC Champions), showing his fondness for the country, but a round three 66 was his only decent lap in the most recent renewal of the latter event (T60). He’s chalked up some air miles since the Ryder Cup: Malaysia and China, then across the U.S. to the Bahamas, before back to the far east again for this week. The pattern thus far has been one good round, but at least a couple of destructive ones. He closed with a bogey-free 68 in the Hero World Challenge and at eight in the world rankings, he’s the boss man in the field on that reckoning. Can he put four good rounds together? Dec 6 - 5:09 AM

World No. 8 Patrick Reed readies for his third straight Hero World Challenge and tees it up in the first round with tournament host and 5-time champion Tiger Woods.

The 26-year-old has gotten progressively better in each of four seasons on TOUR, culminating with a career-best 3rd-place finish last season in the FedExCup standings. He's won five times on TOUR in 126 career events, most recently at the 2016 Barclays where he co-led after 18 holes and was the 36-hole leader. The Texan followed with T5 at the Deutsche Bank and T13 at the BMW Championship before T24 (of 29) at the TOUR Championship. He was the top point-earner for Team USA with 3.5 points (3-1-1) at the Ryder Cup and opened this season with T51 (CIMB Classic) and T60 at the WGC-HSBC. Reed has two top 3s at the Hero WC, highlighted by solo 2nd last year (69-65-66-66).

After a poor finish in Malaysia last week, Patrick Reed turns his attention to the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament in China.

Reed was just outside the top 20 after a third-round 66 in Malaysia but slumped to a 77 on Sunday to slip back to T51. He'll surely have his adrenaline back for this week's test as he bids to add a second WGC win to his resume. His first came at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship while he's had two further top 10s in those events since. The most recent came here at Sheshan International in 2015 when the American Ryder Cup hero shot all four rounds under par and finished T7. He certainly seems to enjoy his trips to this part of the globe and either side of that strong showing in this event 12 months ago he was third at the 2015 Hong Kong Open and runner-up in the BMW Masters.

Patrick Reed survived an early hiccup to still manage a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the CIMB Classic, placing him in a tie for 10th after day one.

The Ryder Cup hero opened on the back nine and it looked ugly after scribbling pars on five of his first six holes in addition to a double-bogey 6 on the par-4 12th hole. From there, he rattled off six birdies over his next 10 holes to climb right back up the leaderboard. The Texan posted the same 4-under 68 here last year en route to a T10 finish. He's improved each and every visit to Kuala Lumpur (T40→T25→T10) so it wouldn't be surprising to see him keep his foot on the gas and maintain that trend this week.

In the lead-off match of Sunday Singles at the 41st Ryder Cup, America's Patrick Reed took down Europe's Rory McIlroy 1UP to post the first U.S. points in Sunday Singles. Live Scoreboard: USA 10.5 Europe 7.5. Reed finished off his second appearance with a 3-1-1 record, improving to 6-1-2 overall, while McIlroy (fifth appearance) dropped to 3-2-0 for the week and 9-6-4 overall.

The Sunday lid-lifter began with the U.S. needing 5 points to reclaim the Ryder Cup. McIlroy, who entered off a 3-match win streak, struck first with birdie-4 at the 3rd with Reed getting back to AS with eagle-2 at the 5th after driving the green. The match stayed that way with the duo exchanging competing birdies on holes 6-8. At the 8th, McIlroy BOMBED in birdie from distance (I can't hear YOU!) with Reed answering with a lengthy birdie of his own. Collectively, the duo went 9-under-par on holes 5-8, with each player carding par breakers on each hole. Reed took his first lead with a par-saver at the 12th and halved the 13th with bogey after McIlroy missed from 5 feet (for par) to win the hole. Reed got up-and-down from a greenside bunker for birdie at the par-5 16th to go 2UP with 2 to play but missed the green at the par-3 17th, and then pitched off the other side of the green, leading to a McIlroy win with a 2-putt par. Reed closed out McIlroy with a dramatic birdie at the 18th.

Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth handled the heavy-hitting duo of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, escaping the Saturday four-ball session with a 2-and-1 victory to give the United States a 9.5 to 6.5 lead entering the final day of the 41st Ryder Cup.

Stenson struck first with a birdie at the par-4 first to give the Europeans a 1-up lead. The two teams pushed the next three holes before Patrick Reed rattled off a four-hole scoring train to take control. The train included three birdies but the highlight was a hole-out eagle at the par-5 sixth hole, spinning back a wedge right into the cup. Reed's reaction was just as fantastic as the shot itself. The Europeans fought hard all round, carding six birdies and an eagle but the match belonged to Patrick Reed who ended with six birdies and an eagle himself (without even playing the 18th) to go along with two birdies from Spieth. With this win, the United States will enter Sunday Singles with a 3-point advantage. They will need five points to hoist the hardware while the Europeans will need 7.5 points or more to retain the cup.

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed shared a point with Sergio Garcia and Rafa Cabrera-Bello in a sensational final foursomes match of the 2016 Ryder Cup which left the Americans heading into Saturday's fourballs with a slender 6.5-5.5 lead.

Through 12 holes Spieth and Reed had been magnificent, opening with a hat-trick of birdies and adding three more at 5, 7 and 12. The Spaniards had matched four of those red numbers, but with two bogeys elsewhere they were 4-down. Spieth had been irresistible with the putter, twice holing from 12' and then from 18' at 12. Reed was clutch on the short putts and holed out with a chip on 5 for the half. But the Americans seemed to tire, making a hat-trick of bogeys at 12, 14 and 15, losing 2 of those holes. Emboldened the Spaniards won 16 with a birdie-4. They then watched Spieth leave a birdie putt on 17 on the hole edge before Cabrera-Bello holed from the fringe to send the match all square down the last. The Spaniards found the green, the Americans missed it; but eventually Reed holed from 6-feet and Garcia from 2-feet for a dramatic half. Both teams played 18 holes in roughly 3-under.

Patrick Reed was clutch in pairing with Jordan Spieth to overhaul Henrik Stenson & Justin Rose and win the first point of the 2016 Ryder Cup 3&2 in their foursomes match.

The European pair had been superb in 2014, claiming 3 from 3, but they never gelled on the first morning. Rose, in particular, struggled on the greens, missing four putts from the 15 to 20 feet range, but Stenson was also struggling to drop the putts for hole wins and the pressure appeared to get to him on the 16th tee when he made a poor swing and pulled wide of the fairway. The pair couldn't recover and only made a par-5 before watching Reed drop the birdie putt for the win. The Americans were far from flawless, but Reed in particular showed solid skills around the greens: a 50-yard pitch on the 3rd set up a birdie, a chip and run on the 5th to secure par, a rapped par putt from 10' on the 10th. And Spieth, though ragged from the tee, holed notable putts: 15' for birdie on the 2nd and 11th. The Americans made birdies at 2, 3, 7, 11 and 16, with bogeys at 9 and 12.

Patrick Reed makes his second Ryder Cup appearance after being the top points-earner for Team USA in a losing effort at Gleneagles in 2014, boasting a 3-0-1 record.

The 26-year-old, fourth in automatic qualifying, enters off career best finishes of 3rd in the final FedExCup standings and 5th on the money list. His 11 top 10s (in 28 starts) was second-most on TOUR this season, four shy of teammate Dustin Johnson. The Texan kicked off the FEC Playoffs with his fifth TOUR title at The Barclays to take the lead in FEC points, but faded with progressively worse finishes of T5-T13 and T24 (of 29) at the TOUR Championship. He posted a T9 at the 2016 WGC-Dell Match Play, winning his Group with a 3-0-0 mark, but lost in the Round of 16 to Johnson (3&2). Reed was a rookie member of the 2015 Presidents Cup, compiling a 1-2-1 record.
Sep 28 - 9:09 PM

FedExCup leader Patrick Reed fashioned a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the BMW Championship to finish off his fourth appearance on 9-under 279, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T12. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed finished T13 and relinquished the FEC lead to champion Dustin Johnson.

The 26-year-old entered with back-to-back top-5 finishes in the first two legs of the Playoffs, highlighted by his win at The Barclays to take over the FEC points lead. He's projecting to drop one spot to 2nd, following a six-birdie two-bogey effort. The Texan mustered just six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, and played his final 10 holes as a solo after World No. 1 Jason Day WD with a back injury. His split featured five conversions from greater than 10 feet, three from outside of 18 feet, highlighted by a 30-footer to kick off at the par-4 first. Reed squared the 14th and 18th on failed scrambles and finished the week with 18 birdies against nine bogeys.
Sep 11 - 4:17 PM

FedExCup leader Patrick Reed stalled out a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the third round of the BMW Championship to post 5-under 211, down two places to T21 with play still in progress.

The 26-year-old is playing his seventh straight week of competition and might be running out of gas a bit. Beginning with T13 at the PGA at the end of July, he's posted seven straight top-25 finishes, highlighted by his win two weeks ago at The Barclays, and is looking forward to the one-week break following this week's event. He kicked on in twin 70s to begin the third round on 4-under (T19). The Texan was cruising at bogey-free 4-under thru 12 holes, but played his final six holes in birdie-less 3-over, including a bogey-bogey finish. He managed just five (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.004 strokes tee-to-green but salvaged the sub-par lap with 1.643 SG: Putting.
Sep 10 - 6:39 PM

FedExCup leader Patrick Reed swallowed one double-bogey hiccup en route to a closing 2-under-par 34-35=69 at the Deutsche Bank Championship, closing the week at 10-under 274, good for a top-10 finish. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed finished T5 and bumped one spot to a career-best 8th in OWGR.

Last week's winner tried to build on the momentum from Bethpage Black, but the ball-striking just wasn't sharp enough this week. He finished outside the top 20 in strokes gained off-the-tee as well as strokes gained approach-the-green. In terms of fairways and greens, he currently ranks T45 and T42 on the week, respectively. Despite the less-than-stellar tee-to-green play, this will go in the books as his second-straight top 10 at TPC Boston after a T4 last year. In three tries, Reed has never finished inside the top 25 at the BMW Championship, but he'll get his first look at Crooked Stick next week with a chance to change that.
Sep 5 - 12:55 PM

FedExCup leader Patrick Reed tacked on a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 7-under 135, up 13 places to T7, four in arrears to 36-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

The 26-year-old exchanged a birdie-4 at the second (from 9'3") with a 3-putt bogey at the par-4 fourth (from 32'11"), and then played his final 14 holes in blemish-free 4-under. He found nine (of 14) fairways and for a second straight lap, hit 13 greens in regulation. The Texan circled back-nine birdies at 10, 11, 13 and 17, the latter three from between five and eight feet, and kicking off the inward half with a pitch-in birdie-3 at 10, 32'10" from the target.
Sep 3 - 8:05 PM

Patrick Reed fired a 3-under-par 37-31=68 during round one of the Deutsche Bank Championship, placing him two strokes off the early pacesetters.

Last week's Barclays champ kept the momentum rolling in round one. He opened on the back nine and circled birdies three of the first six holes. They all came on putts from 12-to-19 feet. After giving one back at the par-3 16th, Reed rebounded at the par-5 18th where he stuck his 240-yard approach to 4'10" to setup a relatively stress-free eagle splash. The 26-year-old added one more highlight on his way into the clubhouse, chipping in for birdie (59'5") at the par-5 seventh. Reed finished T4 last year here at TPC Boston, and could be on his way to a similar result after a strong opening round.
Sep 2 - 2:11 PM

With a 1-under-par 34-36=70, Patrick Reed erased a one-stroke deficit in the final round to win The Barclays on 9-under 275, one clear of runners-up Sean O'Hair and Emiliano Grillo, good for his fifth TOUR title in his 121st career start.

Reed ascends six spots to No. 1 in the FedExCup standings after notching his first win since the 2015 Hyundai TOC (85 weeks ago), where he came from two back with a closing 6-under 67, eventually winning in a playoff. In his other three titles, he either led or co-led after 54 holes. This week, the 26-year-old was the 18-hole co-leader, and led by two at the midpoint before an even-par 71 in R3 left him solo second, one shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. In the finale, he mustered half (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 2.000 putts per GIR and -1.447 SG: Putting. The Texan bogeyed holes 3, 16 and 18, averting a trip-bogey finish with a clutch 7'4" par save on 17. In between, he circled Nos. 4, 5, 7 and 12, highlighted by a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 fifth. Reed's win comes in his 25th start of the season and is his 10th top 10, third top 5, joining runner-up finishes at the HTOC and the Valero Texas Open.
