Patrick Reed opened his title defense of the Wyndham Championship with a 1-over-par 35-36=71.
This was about as poorly as he could have scored today. With his wife, Justine, toting the bag again, he went 0-for-3 in scrambling en route to three bogeys and picked off only two birdies. He concluded the loop sitting eight strokes off Camilo Villegas' overnight lead and with a strokes gained-putting clip of -2.201. Reed is the reigning champion of three events, so he'll have to get used to the responsibilities that go with the success. Aug 14 - 7:42 PM

Patrick Reed picked up his first of three PGA TOUR wins in the last 12 months at last year's Wyndham Championship and is back to defend this week.

There is little doubt that Reed will be riding high after scoring a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team via automatic qualification after the PGA Championship. The real value to gamers this week is understanding how he handles the pressure of defending. With title defenses forthcoming at the Humana Challenge and WGC-Cadillac Championship early in 2015, his play at Sedgefield this week could provide insight as to how he will show in those events.

The window for automatic qualifying for the United States team for the Ryder Cup closed today at the 96th PGA Championship.

Given how many Americans are sidelined right now, the timing of the deadline is almost superfluous. If there's any good news -- at least to anyone but Jason Dufner -- it's that the 2013 PGA champion fell outside the bubble today. He slipped to 11th. The top nine are eligible, but Dustin Johnson (ranked sixth) has already been ruled out as he addresses personal challenges. So, here's the first nine in order (previous editions in which he competed): 1. Bubba Watson (2010, 2012); 2. Rickie Fowler (2010); 3. Jim Furyk (1997, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012); 4. Jimmy Walker (rookie); 5. Phil Mickelson (1995, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012); 6. Matt Kuchar (2010, 2012); 7. Jordan Spieth (rookie); 8. Patrick Reed (rookie); 9. Zach Johnson (2006, 2010, 2012). Captain Tom Watson will complete the squad with three captain's picks on Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Patrick Reed crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to secure a top-10 finish at 9-under 271.

Reed's lap around Firestone CC featured three birdies and an eagle from 104 yards out of a fairway bunker on the par-4 17th. He also had a 31'11" chip-in from the rough for birdie on the par-4 11th. He picked a nice week to catch fire, as the absence of Dustin Johnson from the upcoming Ryder Cup now place him inside the automatic qualification with just one week remaining.
Aug 3 - 6:34 PM

Patrick Reed could only record a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, dropping into a tie for 10th at 4-under 206.

Reed circled three birdies and handed back four bogeys on his navigation of Firestone CC, with an 11'1" birdie at the par-4 first and a 19'3" birdie at the par-3 seventh highlighting his performance. He stands to potentially be the recipient of Dustin Johnson bowing out of the remainder of this PGA TOUR season in terms of the Ryder Cup, as Reed moves from 10th to ninth in the current standings. The top nine after next week's PGA Championship are automatic qualifiers.
Aug 2 - 5:21 PM

Patrick Reed answered his opening 67 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round to post 5-under 135, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Reed rode a bit of a roller coaster at Firestone today. He opened bogey-par-bogey, but picked off six birdies thereafter, including rolls from 24'2", 17'6" and 11 feet at the seventh, 11th and 13th holes, respectively. He squared two more bogeys coming in, but added par saves from just outside 11 feet at Nos. 9 and 12. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split read 3.222 for the round. He'll enter the weekend attempting to make it consecutive victories in WGCs.
Aug 1 - 5:02 PM

Patrick Reed hung up a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, good for the very early clubhouse lead.

Reed went out in the first pairing off the first tee. He split only five (of 14) fairways and hit just 10 greens in regulation, but he managed to find six birdies at Firestone Country Club's South Course today. Five dropped in conventionally, three of which from 11-15 feet, but the highlight was a 25-yard pitch-in from in front of the green at the par-4 13th hole. Reed also squared three bogeys, including a three-jack from just outside 44 feet at the par-4 17th, but overall it's a terrific effort in his debut at this tournament.
Jul 31 - 1:14 PM

Patrick Reed blew up for a 6-over-par 35-43=78 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

Given his success over the last 12 months, it's a little hard to believe that he's making his first appearance in this tournament. Alas, the learning curve beat him up today. He hit only 10 greens in regulation and found one birdie (at the par-4 seventh hole) before squaring four bogeys and a snowman at the closing par 5. The good news is that he's making it rather easy to improve on his score in the second round.
Jul 17 - 8:00 AM

Patrick Reed swallowed a 6-over-par 36-41=77 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to finish in a tie for 11th at even-par 284.

Reed entered the finale with a two-stroke lead, and had been perfect in converting 54-hole leads, but that streak came to an end at Congressional. He was in good shape after playing the front nine in even par, but back-to-back double bogeys to start the back ended his chances. In all, he circled five birdies, squared five bogeys and three double bogeys. His 10'6" birdie at the first was his longest of the day.
Jun 29 - 6:42 PM

Patrick Reed battled for an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National and emerged with a two-stroke lead at 6-under 208.

This is dangerous territory for those chasing Reed. Three times in his career he's held a 54-hole lead and all three have resulted in him holding a trophy 18 holes later. It's worth mentioning that each of his three PGA TOUR wins have come in the last 11 months, with two coming in the 2013-14 season. Needless to say, this tournament is his to lose. His third lap around Congressional featured three birdies, highlighted by an 11'2" effort on the par-4 fifth, and three bogeys.
Jun 28 - 5:43 PM

Patrick Reed enjoyed his opening, 3-under-par 68 at the Quicken Loans National so much that he went ahead and turned in another in today's second round to post 6-under 136, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

Reed will share the overnight lead with Marc Leishman, Oliver Goss and Ricky Barnes. Given recent form, Leishman is the only of the lot that isn't a surprise, but Reed certainly has the firepower and talent to make a run at his third victory of the season. He hit 13 greens in regulation today en route to respective nines of 35 and 33. That total didn't include at the par-3 10th hole where he began his round, yet he walked off with a birdie thanks to a tidy seven-yard conversion from off the putting surface. Five birdies ensued, including rolls from 29'2" and 12'9" at the first and sixth holes, respectively. They helped squelch a four-putt double-bogey 6 (from just 31 feet) at No. 11 and a bogey at the par-3 second.
Jun 27 - 6:18 PM

Patrick Reed fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

To put some perspective on today's score, it's his first under par in 14 rounds. It's also his lowest aggregate since he opened his victory at Doral with a 4-under 68. Reed hit 14 greens in regulation today and reached bogey-free 5-under through 16 holes. His set of five birdies was highlighted by a roll from 11'1" at the par-4 first to begin the show. He also poured in a par save from 10'2" at the par-5 sixth where he rinsed his tee ball. However, he stumbled in bogey-bogey to lose the lead.
Jun 26 - 1:31 PM

Patrick Reed signed for a 2-over-par 35-37=72 following his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

This marked Reed's first competitive action since THE PLAYERS and since his first child was born on May 22, so you'd expect him to struggle on the greens and he regained his touch even though he took solo fifth here a year ago. However, he hit only 10 in regulation and lassoed two birdies, instead falling victim to two bogeys and a double-bogey 5 at the 14th hole where he rinsed his tee ball. Thanks to par saves from 11'10" and 20'6" at Nos. 2 and 9, respectively, he's six strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.
Jun 5 - 3:45 PM

Patrick Reed is listed in the published field of next week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

You know the story by now. He's withdrawn early from each of the last three tournaments as he awaited the birth of his first child, which arrived on May 22. So, if he doesn't make it four in a row, the St. Jude will be his first action since missing the cut at THE PLAYERS. He's broken par just once in his last 11 rounds spanning five events, so we'll likely need one or two scores to get the pulse of his form and understand if the imminent birth may have influenced his focus negatively. Of course, there's also the cloud hovering of his top-five comment following the win at Doral. Reed is just 2-for-5 since with no better than a T48 at Harbour Town.
May 30 - 6:22 PM

Patrick Reed has been removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

Given that his first child was born last Thursday, we'll cut him some slack. Since winning at Doral and proclaiming confidence that he's a top-five talent, the new daddy is just 2-for-5 with no top 45s. This is the third consecutive week that he's withdrawn early from a commitment. NOTE: James Driscoll also withdrew as an alternate.
