Patrick Reed’s mother-in-law takes aim at Furyk, Spieth, and Ryder Cup politics



If you thought the ugly fallout from the United States defeat at the Ryder Cup had blown over then you were sorely mistaken. Patrick Reed and his wife, Justine, have already had their say on the likes of Jordan Spieth and Jim Furyk, and now Reed’s mother-in-law has decided to air her views on the U.S. failure at Le Golf National.

Posting in the comments section of an article written about Reed (on Facebook), the Texan’s mother-in-law goes to town on Jordan Spieth, Jim Furyk and the cliques within the U.S. Ryder Cup side. Components which she believes were to blame for the poor showing of the U.S. side last week in Paris.

Right now the feud is quite one-sided, with neither Spieth or Furyk getting involved, and the likelihood of either man responding publicly to some of the claims made this week by Reed and his family seems slim. However, that doesn’t seem to deter the women in Reed’s life, who are determined to defend his performance in Paris.

Golf journalist Alan Shipnuck was also on the hit list of Reed’s M-I-L, while there was also time for another swipe at Jordan Spieth.

Anyone else looking forward to some battles on the golf course between Reed and Spieth in the new season?

    It’s the freakin Ryder Cup. Who cares except the corporations making bank on it? Forgot it was even going on.

    Looks like the whole bunch of them are nuts. The only thing I can say about it was the perfect match would have been putting Reed against Poulter the last day, would that have been entertaining. Both of them pointing at each other, pounding their chests, hushing the crowd, and maybe ever a little punch now and then with some Bodyslanning, that is if Poulter could pick up Reed.

    They could even have the respective Wives and Mother-in- Laws have a Tag Team event after the match is over or one is knocked out. And then a big riot in the Crowd to finish the week. What a sham The Cup has turn3e into.

    Which is a trait of leadership and maturity:
    1. being dishonest and likeable, or
    2. being honest and unlikeable?

    Hint: It’s not 1. Time for Snowflake Americans young and old to grow up.

      Those aren’t the only two options available. A lot of people would argue that Reed and his family are dishonest and unlikable.

    Dang – mom-in-law hit’n the two buck chuck pretty hard. I bet if they were to do the “blind” poll now on the most disliked pro PR would be in first place. Never thought Poulter would move up a click… he’s still my most disliked.

    Wow…now it’s the Mother-in-Law’s turn to chime in? This family is all working together to dig this hole of theirs deeper and deeper. I’m guessing they figure that there’s nothing to lose since nobody likes him as it is, so it can only improve. Talk about an ugly echo chamber! Patrick will continue to eat and practice alone. Who wins the Payne Stewart award first…..Reed or Spieth?

    PR is too young to alienate himself from his peers like this… I don’t know why you’d want to play a game where you see nearly the same 100-125 people every single week and purposefully make them dislike you. Sounds like a lonely and depressing life to me.

    Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup etc…just as what was once called the silly season are nothing but “Made for TV” exhibitions by some of the best golfers in the world period…they mean absolutely nothing in the realm of Professional Golf….Professional golf is not a team sport, never has been, never will be….

    Regardless of what you think about Patrick, his wife or his Mother In Law. Tell me the last team player for the US who went 6-0 in singles matches. Has anyone ever done that before?

    Hmmmm, haven’t heard from Reed’s parents in awhile….oh, that’s right they aren’t allowed to speak to the press or to the wife or to the grandchildren. She has the right but if my mother in law was needed to fight my battles it would be a lonely christmas. I don’t want to hear from the peanut gallery.

    • Dr Troy

      Oct 6, 2018 at 6:25 pm

      THIS…You are spot on. The mother in law that seems to be as cray as the daughter that is married to him. Another piece of evidence that they grabbed on to fat boy and that they can say anything they want in public, yet HIS parents cant say anything at all, else they are the crazy ones! This is nutso. Go ahead PR, have a lonely life on TOUR with your caddy, Justine’s brother and yourself.

      I can just see the end of the show.
      Reed sitting in a chair opposite Spieth.
      Jerry opens an envelope. Turns to Speithand
      says “You are not the golfer”.
      Reed jumps up and says “ See I told you so”.

    Way to go mom! Let it all hang out! You have it spot on.
    Everybody else who can’t see the truth in what she and Patrick are saying are delusional and need to hold each other’s weak hands, which is exactly the point she is making. Which is precisely why the US lost, which is exactly what she is saying.
    Which is fine for the Europeans.

    Reed’s wife and in-laws appear to be either very immature, or are possibly suffering from some sort of mental disorder. Whatever it is, it appears to be contagious…

      Telling the ugly truth requires much maturity and wisdom. Time to grow up.

    Balls. Good for her. That’s freedom. That’s American, unlike Reed’s sheepish parents and millions of other phonies who need a thoughtpolice nannystate.

    The more I hear from Reed and his wifes family, the more I am to believe that his wife and her family are POS. Sounds like Reeds parents were right.

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?



According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…



Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
