WATCH: Patrick Reed confronts a camera crew at the European Open

Published

on

“I’m not going [hitting the ball] until y’all get the heck out of here,” Patrick Reed told a camera crew during the first round of the European Tour’s Porsche European Open in Germany.

Standing over his ball at Green Eagle’s 10th hole, the Golf Channel’s Instagram post shows Reed’s caddie, Kessler Karain motioning to someone and gesturing.

“You’re rattling change in your pocket. That’s why I’m pointing at you for,” Kerrain says forcefully.

Reed eventually says, “He lost privileges by going like that [rattling it in his pocket] with change],” before sending the crew further away.

See the incident below.

Warning to all camera crews: Do NOT jingle your change around Patrick Reed!

A post shared by Golf Channel (@golfchannel) on

Fan behavior is a subject that can be debated, but there’s absolutely no excuse for anyone inside the ropes to ever be anything but respectful and quiet.

    Like him or not he is justified in asking the person to be quite while he is hitting the shot. The culprit should be warned and should be re-trained in how to conduct himself while working any golf tournament.

    I wouldn’t jump to firing the guy but P.Reed’s handling is justified and practical. Most spectators just outside the ropes are conscious of not moving and making noise in those seconds before the player makes their shot, let alone those working inside the ropes.

    This actually helped the guy rattling the change. Reed might of stolen it if he didn’t warn them. I kid, I kid.

    Staff and crew working these tournaments shouldn’t have to be told how to conduct themselves!

    If the players & caddies have to correct them, they shouldn’t be there in the first place…

    The cameraman should lose his job. He was deliberately trying to disrupt play even after being repeatedly warned by Reed’s caddie. VERY unprofessional.

      I love how we live in a culture where we think people should just be fired for anything. Man loses his job for jiggling loose change.

    I believe the offending individual was not the cameraman, but the other member of the two-man crew, who might be the “support” person who carries the battery pack and/or other stuff. If the actual cameraman is is operating the camera on a mono-pod, he’ll need both hands to operate it.

      Appears there were TWO camermen, one with a still camera on a mono-pod and one with the TV camera. Guess they’re making those batteries “long-lasting.” ^_^

      Unless you’re completely clueless you do realize that he does play in America on a regular basis right?

    I’ll bet it wasn’t the first time they had problems with the camera dude that day as well. Good on P Reed.

    There is a level of trust the players have with the cameraman. They expect them to be quiet and not move. That is really inexcusable by the cameraman.

      The camerman had nothing to do with it … keep up, Reed even tells the camerman sorry…

        It appears there were two cameraman…. keep up! Even if it was support for the cameraman wtf difference does it make? Same level of trust.

    Good for him. He’s a professional and the cameramen should be too.

Tuesday: Played @pinehurstresort number 4. This course is phenomenal. Gil Hanse’s redesign of this course is outstanding. Definitely not as punishing as course 2 but just as good in terms of layout. Greens are fast and large but will not punish you as much with imprecise shots. Much more fun to play if you want to score well. Still difficult but it will not frustrate you like Course 2. We had a beautiful 70 degree day and couldn’t of had a better time playing this course. We had the first tee time off in the morning and finished just under 4 hours which left us enough time to go play another track which I will post about shortly. Enjoy the pics! #pinehurst4 #whyilovethisgame #pinehurstgolf #golfislife #instagolf #golfdigesttop100 #ncgolf #golfwrx #golfcoursepics
