So...anybody see the rant on the PGA Tour's Facebook page over the weekend by sister Hanna Reed about brother Patrick before the Tour deleted it? Thank God at least one twitter person took a screenshot. Now it's out there for all eternity. It's on golfunfiltered.com and other places I'm sure. I was embarrassed sitting here alone reading it. Talk about airing family dirty laundry O...M...G

I didn't see it. Can you point me to the twitter screenshot?

 

I'd like to see it as well.

Wife and I seldom use profanity, wasn't common in our home. It's not tolerated in the office either, so its not listened for on TV.

 

The only golf person we use to regularly see mouthing profanities was Tiger. Probably because camera's were always doing closeups on his face. That's not to say others didn't use it, its just they didn't or don't have a camera in their face all the time.

 

Today's youth are sadly vocabulary challenged. Lacking being taught manners and self-control at home, profanity is all they know to express frustration. Thankfully, TV attempts to mute it out. Unfortunately, children in the nearby gallery get the full affect; suppose its like hearing parents at home; either way, its wrong.

 

Its funny, PT.

 

My wife says she never heard her Father drop an F-bomb in over 30+ years.

 

I go play a round with him, and he curses like a sailor on leave ; )

 

My wife and son would say the same about me and her dad. :lol: But they didn't know me in my late 20-30's when in-country as a contractor.

The whole Facebook post from his sister is an interesting addition to the Patrick Reed story.

 

I can go either way when it comes to him. Having read as much negative press about him as there has been I think that there is no doubt that he is an interesting guy and there must be something behind it. He also seems to have been found out in the past for saying things which have later found out to be less than accurate.

 

I like that the guy seems to passionate about his golf, about his country and will stand up for himself. I also like that when I have seen him in and around fans particularly kids at the Ryder Cup and the last couple of Open's he has been brilliant. Those things are definitely to his credit.

Reed is an Old School Professional Golfer living in a modern world. The Tour is not a personality contest. He gets it done. You may not care for his attitude, but he probally don't give a flip about your opinion. I like him.

 

To all of you who hit the 'like' button for this post, you warmed the heart of an old Pro. It's good to know so many 'get it' when it comes to Tour players and their world. Until the later part of their careers some players you may recall were not fan favorites...Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson. Turned out nearly everyone was a fan of theirs in the end. Let's just watch this kid play and enjoy someone who is not a "cookie cutter" Pro.

By most accounts, he dines alone.

Agree I've heard from inside sources he has very few friends on tour and not very like by other players. Actually heard at last Ryder cup nobody want to play with him and finally Speith said he would.

 

It ended up being a pretty good pairing though didn't it?

I love the way Reed goes about his business on the course. I think he has one of the best swings on tour, even with the sliding left foot. He's a well rounded player.

 

For those of you too young to remember, let me introduce you to Bob Gilder....

 

He shares a trait with Reed, in the fact that his feet move, altho it tended to be more of the back foot for Gilder.

 

He was a Ryder Cupper, and I always gave him credit for owning his game.

 

Here is a link, to see what his footwork looked like in his younger days.

It appears that the golfunfiltered website has decided to pull the screenshot and their subsequent post about it.

 

Hey...the Tour is about playing golf....social media is going to be the death of us all!

I call BS on this.

God I hope that's not true.

 

Not being professional enough to play with a proven winner, you know, so that you can win, just seems so spoiled and immature to me. Do you think everyone on a football team just loves each others company?

Yep. You heard from Joe who heard from Fred, who heard from someone else... Sounds like Hollywood rumor mill... lol It might just be he doesn't care to hang with tour jerks.

Yep Rickie is not your axe murderer.. The subject of this thread most certainly is, Give him mcilroy last ball out in the singles on Sunday when it's all tied. I can't wait.

he is the definition of what you have lost,Lee Trevino ,Ray floyd , Lanny Wadkins ,Paul Azinger Tom kite,Payne Stewart.

He will try his a** off to make USA victory

Unfortunately for him i am utterly certain he will fail........

Love Him. We need someone to get in Europeans heads and return a little of their BS. They've always had one Spaniard or another to whine about non-existent rules violations , cough/sneeze while opponents are swinging, etc. I don't know how some of the American squad didn't punch Seve in the face over the years. Same with Monty, Sergio etc. Call him brash, cocky, arrogant whatever...he is a Ryder Cup player.

And it worked out pretty well when Spieth finally relented and joined him methinks.

I have always thought he has been a beast of a player. However, I had two issues with him he seems to have resolved - he got rid of that stupid choke chain necklace thing he used to wear and stopped wearing Tiger Woods red and black EVERY week. I couldn't help it. He reminded me of all the pansy AJGA and college wanna be players. Tuuuurns out he is growing up to be a god damn animal and IS a big time player... FOR SURE. Get em PR
