Patrick Reed hasn’t spoken to Spieth since the Ryder Cup, tells media: “He has my number”

Published

on

If you thought that the messy Ryder Cup fallout involving Patrick Reed was a thing of the past, then think again. Ahead of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, Reed revealed that neither he nor Jordan Spieth had reached out to each other since the biennial event to clear the air after their relationship appeared to break down at Le Golf National.

When asked to comment on the matter, Reed put the ball firmly in Spieth’s court, stating: “He has my number,” according to the New York Post’s Mark Cannizzaro.

Reed’s issue with Spieth arose in the aftermath of the 2018 Ryder Cup after reports emerged that Spieth no longer wanted to partner Reed in the four-ball or foursomes format. Reed, as well as his wife and mother in law, criticized Spieth following the U.S. teams defeat in Paris, and now Reed has stated how changes to the usual pairings to appease one or two individuals on the side was detrimental to the U.S. team.

“You had to look at the breakdown of all the guys on the team and what was best for the entire team, not just one or two individuals. So you split up Jordan and I, right? Then you split up Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler, who have played great golf together … groupings that had been proven successful in that format. So it was about the team, not one or two individuals.’’

The 28-year-old was criticized heavily for his comments after the event in Paris, where he took shots at both Spieth and captain Jim Furyk. However, Reed believes that the condemnation he received was un-justified, claiming that when Phil Mickelson did similar back in 2014, he received plaudits, before Reed suggested that he is not given a fair shake from the media.

“He did it and got praised. I did it and got destroyed. It all depends on who the person is, obviously.’’

Reed wasn’t done taking a swipe at the media either and claimed that his relationship with Spieth is absolutely fine and that it is the press that has created the perceived friction between the two men, saying: “I have nothing against Jordan, nothing against him at all. That is done by the media, that’s not done by how he or I feel.’’

I think it’s fair to say that we’d all like to hear from Spieth on that one.

    The only confrontation, if we can call it that these days, takes place on a 5.5″ HD device. Gone are the days when the pros would grasp each other firmly by the throat in the locker room. Anything else is a pale imitation and for hiding behind a 5.5″ screen, read “mummy’s skirt”.

      You can say that again.

      _So_ sick of this guy’s act. Just another a-hole who doesn’t care that he’s known as an a-hole. The game doesn’t need him. At all.

      I would say I don’t understand why people like him who are lucky enough to play a game for a living have to be abrasive and off-putting, like they’re completely confident that people should and will always come out and watch them anyway. Without that interest, there’s no money in the game and he has to do something else for a living. But I actually _do_ know at least part of the reason why they do this: Fans keep coming anyway. Same for the NFL and NBA and other pro sports. No matter what they do, there will always be fans buying tickets and buying products, excusing and defending them for whatever they do, and shouting down anybody who thinks a player should have any standard of behavior at all. I mean, as long as everybody gets their entertainment, right?

      And, as you say, completely free from any fear of having somebody put a fist through their face. Worst that can happen is a little return snark on social media. It explains a lot about the way things are now.

    You got to give Patrick props here. He’s not afraid of confrontation and the media keeps asking his opinion on this.
    He’s just telling it how he sees it. I’m sure the media has asked for Jordan to respond, and he probably doesn’t want to say anything, but maybe then goes behind Reed’s back to others talking. IDK just a thought. Point is, too many people nowadays are afraid of confrontation. Obviously Mr.Reed is not, and I like him more because of that.

      Props for confrontation? Seems a bit ridiculous but even if thats your hill – he’s not confronting anyone. He’s commenting to reporters, confrontation would be speaking to Speith directly

        Props for not being afraid of confrontation is what I said.
        It’s not my hill. I’m not one to jump to confront, I’m not gonna make a mat like in Office Space.
        However I’m not afraid of it like some. Nor am I fearful of a good argument.. Maybe he did speak to Jordan, IDK and either do you.

          Let me divulge further on my theory here… Reed says he hasn’t talked to Speith.. Maybe he has and maybe he hasn’t. Maybe it’s a ploy, maybe he wants the public to believe he hasn’t talked to Speith.. Maybe he’s a conspiracy geek. Either way. They should mud wrestle…

      If Reed truly wasn’t afraid of confrontation, you wouldn’t be reading this story. He’d have called or gotten in touch with everyone directly, aired things out and been done with it. The fact that he’s still talking to the media about it a couple of months later actually means he’s avoiding confrontation and being a pussy by not dealing with people directly. Heck you could even say he had his mommy and wife do his talking for him. That doesn’t sound like someone afraid of confrontation.

        That’s an interesting point. I didn’t look at it that way. Maybe he is being a little bitch about this. Although maybe he confronted Speith right away at the Ryder Cup, or right after it IDK. I think we are safe to assume, these 2 don’t like each other tho.

    Unreal. Why would anybody want to be friends with someone like reed? Pretty sure if Jordan was asked about the situation he would probably say little or change the subject. Thats what a person with the least bit of class would do.

      Why not? The mort important question is why would anyone want to be friends with a silver spoon suckin, church thumpin, whiny little hoser like Speith.

Bubba Watson shares green jacket secrets, why he loves the new schedule, and his most important putting tip with Rich Eisen

Published

on

Bubba Watson took time out this week to discuss why Tour players love the new schedule, secrets of the green jacket, his most important putting tip, and more on The Rich Eisen Show.

The 40-year-old discussed why the players enjoy the schedule shake-up, which now sees the 2018/19 season end in August, joking how it allows Tour players to enjoy football without interruption, before adding that it now offers players greater flexibility when choosing which events to play.

As a multiple Masters champion, Watson also divulged to Eisen that he wears the green jacket on every occasion possible when on the grounds of Augusta National, and spoke about the impact of Tiger Woods’ victory at the tournament earlier this year, describing his win as “the greatest comeback story out of any sport by far”.

Watson began the interview by handing out a putting lesson to Eisen, advising him to put more weight on his front foot to “stay down on the putt” – which led to Eisen making back-to-back attempts.

Check out the full interview below.

Gary Woodland discusses trading NBA ambitions for a U.S. Open title, what it meant to win in front of his father, and more on the Dan Patrick Show

Published

on

Gary Woodland dialed into the Dan Patrick Show this week where he discussed amongst other topics – his impressive U.S. Open victory at Pebble Beach, what it meant to have his father in attendance, and how he traded his NBA aspirations for his career in golf.

Speaking on the emotions he felt winning the U.S. Open on Father’s Day in front of his father, who suffered a heart attack in Woodland’s rookie year while he was playing at Pebble Beach, the 35-year-old described the occasion as one that “you can’t make up.”

Clips courtesy of AT&T Audience Network.

As well as Sunday’s victory, Woodland discussed how his sporting ambitions changed after initially desiring a career in the NBA. In the 10 minute interview, the U.S. Open champion mentioned how in his first basketball game in college when matched up against Kirk Hinrick he realised that “he needed to find something else to do”.

Woodland also talked about his celebrations which involved drinking vodka out of the trophy with Jordan Spieth – a ritual Justin Thomas wouldn’t partake in due to a superstition having not yet won the U.S. Open, as well as the advantage longer hitters on Tour now have whether the course is long or short, and his nerveless shots on 14 and 17 on Sunday.

Check out the entire interview in the video below.

The Dan Patrick Show airs daily at 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET on AT&T Audience Network which can be found on DIRECTV Ch. 239.
