Hard to say.  I was pulling for Patrick reed.  

We are now measuring the level of dislike? Stupid thread.         

The kid is eccentric and big brained.  However having met him once and dealing with people that are in Golfing Machine circles, this kid is as humble as they come.  He's funny and teachable.  He's jus

I don't think everyone dislikes him, I just think the people who dislike things tend to share their opinions more often. I like him, and I'm sure lots of others do as well. 

 

Its like when you look up a review of something you wanna buy, lets say a car. And you see 1000 posts online about issues with that car and think holy sh*t, but then you realize they sold 5 million of that car.... And the other 4.9 million owners didn't have any reason to share their dismay with the world.

I don't really get the feeling he is disliked. As others have said there seems to be a loud group of people from the establishment who don't like what he is doing. But in the golf community at large he does not seem disliked. 

 

At my club on Saturday i probably heard 10 people say "anyone but Patrick Reed". The announcers mentioned a few times that if there were fans Reed would have had to deal with boos and taunts from the NY crowd

 

That guy is disliked.

We had an employee that said, Reed is a jerk, but in the Ryder Cup, he's OUR jerk!  Reed doesn't make it easy on himself, I will admit.

No way is he the most disliked.  Not even close.  A few hater dorks on WRX and a few traditionalists "get of my lawn" types does not make a quorum.

I like him except for the slow play. 

There are more than a few guys out there that play slow.  He's just on TV playing slow for all to see.  He's faster, but still slow.

it’s not traditionalists, many people dislike HIM as a person, it’s going nothing to do with how he plays golf.  He’s got a track record of being abusive to referees, and broadcasters.  He’s been entangled in terrible slow play issues.  And honestly, he seems to have a terrible attitude at times.   But it’s not because of how he plays golf, it’s because of his growing track record of terrible interactions that people dislike him.

His swing is not the most aesthetically pleasing thing I have ever seen. I'm not sure how many people he will inspire to swing similarly.

It shouldn't.  His swing works for him and his body.  That's one of the premises of The Golfing Machine.  It does what YOUR body is designed to do.  His swing won't work for anyone else.  However Cobra keeps selling One Length stuff, which is a whole different conversation.  However HIS equipment works for him.

There have been plenty of non-aesthetic swings that were successful...going back to Arnold Palmer and Raymond Floyd, just to name two. It doesn't have to be pretty to be effective.

On the flip side, there are tons of super good looking swings that haven't achieved huge levels of success - Adam Scott certainly comes to mind.

People dislike him because they have talked about how stupid his one length irons were. People were upset they called him the scientist. Then when his incredible bulk approach worked it backfired on all the people that said all of his tinkering was going to destroy his game. Throw in some quirky actions and there you go. Most of the hate is jealousy and hate for bomb and gouge.

Bomb and gouge doesn't work for everyone.  Rory for example, can bomb as he outdrove Bryson for the week, but Rory wasn't strong enough to "gouge" it out of those bad lies in the rough. You just have to take what you have that week and figure it out.

To paraphrase Roger Maltbie from Saturday when asked he said, "I'm not a fan of this style (bomb and gouge) of play in a US Open as opposed to precision and hitting fairways and greens". This seems to be the consensus of the "dislikers". As such it's not just B.A.D. who's playing this way.

 

He's a different cat to say the least but thats not a reason to hate on him (IMHO). Hell it takes all types and I'm really glad it does. It wouldn't hurt his team to get him a PR coach and maybe use Faldo's man crush to their advantage.

 

I personally am intrigued by what he's done in the past 2 years. He's played some really good golf (obviously) and he's also missed cuts. He has dedicated this past year to invoking what he truly believes is a winning formula in golf. And to me that's a really gutsy move. Time will tell if it'll last over the next couple of years or longer. I wish him well.
