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

Published

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.

    Sour grapes from Reed he spat the dummy out and aggresively made gestures to the eoropean crowd he was crap the first day and Jim Furyk saw this but Reed should not speak against his Capt he should respect the decisions made personally I dont have time for any American egonistic concieted decrepid cant print my nect words of thought

    After his immature comments after the Ryder Cup, we ALL have Patrick Reed’s number!

    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.

????????Looking for opinions ???????? – – *Quick statement: I don’t give a $hit about pro athletes being allowed or not allowed to take certain supplements. Also think @philmickelson is the man* – – But it seems most of the internet doctors think this is Phil taking CBD. I recently started taking CBD at night to try and aid inflammation and a better nights sleep. Let me tell you, within 30 minutes I am out like a brick ????. I have noticed much better sleep and do generally feel better when waking up. – – SO my question is this, if it is in fact CBD-is there different kinds that I am missing out on for maybe energy/focus? If I took CBD while golfing, I would be sleeping in the cart. Educate me! ???? ???? – – – – – – – – – – – – #cbd #cbdoil #health #wellness #supplements #golf #golfing #golfislife #golfclub #golflife #views #golfgram #instagolf #golfphotos #playorperish #seamusgolf #golfphotography #golfswing #golfgame #fit #fitness #golfwrx #pure #outdoors #sendit #loveofthegame #themasters #tigerwoods #goat

Fun times on a collab with our good friends at Dunning Golf. We combined golfs most technical fabric curated by Dunning, with some good old fashioned leather(Worlds oldest natural technical material). . Our teams took a couple hours to whip these prototypes together and are stoked on the outcome! Keep in mind, these won’t be going into production. These are a teaser of what is coming next!! This was more of a “Rev the engine” test project. . Dunning X Dormie has crafted a serious line of covers and alignment stick covers that will be combined with sick alignment sticks from Bubba Whips! This player package is still under wraps and will be released soon. For now you’ll have to imagine how PURE this next collection will be. Think PURE…TOUR PURE.???????????????? . . #pga #pgatour #collaboration #unitedstates #handmade #halifax #anaheim #gq #instagolf #golfdigest #madeincanada #dunninggolf #mygolfspy #usa #golf #golfdigest #golfwrx #golfchannel #bestcovers #clean #forbes#dunning#bubbawhips

“Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness” I like it.

It only took a couple of rounds to decide – these @benhogangolf irons are staying in the bag! Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness… ???? Of course that means they have to get the full treatment – gloss black paint fill, some @bbandfco flair, and the wedges have to match… so @vokeywedges SM7’s complete the deal. ???? I was so proud that my #witb had finally stayed the same for another season… thanks again @thpgolf for changing that!!! I’ll be doing a substantial update to the WITB blog post soon! . . . . . . #notrunofthemill #golf #?? #golfswag #golfaddict #golflifestyle #handmade #handcrafted #golfishard #liveunderpar #lovegolf #golfporn #golfislife #instagolf #instagood #dropbombs #whyilovethisgame #birdiebomb #libertyballmarkers #minimalistgolf #lessthan14 #thehackersparadise #golfwrx #mygolfspy #pga
