I totally eat my words......a great round and great tournament by Rickie. Did everything he needed to do to win. Reed just played out of his mind with very few errors. It’s very unusual that -14 doesn’t win The Masters. I was begging Reed to bogie 18. Rickie would have beat him In a playoff IMO.
He is. And “allegedly” stole from players at UGA and was caught cheating. Thus ending up and Augusta State. Thus being a d-bag to everyone at Karsten. Thus costing us a 2011 Championship. Thus costing Rickie a major.
Shane Ryan said there was a code of silence regarding Reed’s time at UGA, describing it as a type of “golf omerta.” Ryan brought up whispers that Reed had cheated on the course during a qualifying round (trying to hit a better-positioned ball that wasn’t his), reported better scores than he’d actually shot and may have stolen from teammates ($400 and a Scotty Cameron putter, Ryan’s source said). Reed denied these claims and said he was ousted for multiple alcohol arrests. According to reports, those incidents were nothing more than the usual college-kid stupidity. But a Georgia assistant coach released a statement saying that Ryan’s report was accurate and that UGA chose not to associate with “Patrick as a person.”
The few jealous teammates were unanimous at both schools he attended. The green jacket proves he can play golf. That has never been in doubt. He just can't do anything with grace. Reminds me of Bobby Knight.
