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.

    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

    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.

Thank you all that participated in our giveaway!!! Now onto the exciting stuff; UST Mamiya and I have partnered to create a limited run of Driver/Fairway shafts with 100% of the proceeds going to Susan G Komen for Breast Cancer Research. Shafts are $150 each and are available in either 7F5, 6F5, or 6F4 (F5 is X-stiff and F4 is stiff). DM me to order. 1 in 8 women are affected by Breast Cancer. My mother being one of them was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer when I was in 8th grade, she fought for 11 years eventually losing that battle in 2016, right around the time I picked up golf. When she was originally diagnosed I had no idea what the severity was but everyday she battled and fought and still managed to attend every extra curricular activity and school event all the way through my college career. She never missed a baseball game scheduling chemo around my high school and college schedule, driving four hours up to Pennsylvania and back to watch my ass sit in the bullpen and sometimes pitch. She was the epitome of tough and was the best role model, boss, and friend I could ask for. I really wish she could meet the friends that I have made through this golf community and where this game has taken me in the past few years. I miss you every day.???????? • • • • • #golf #golfer #golfingaround #instagolf #golfdigest #swooshlife #golfgear #trendygolf #alwaysbegolfing #pinkribbon #survivor #whyilovethisgame #golfaddict #golfislife #golfbabes #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerawarenessmonth #golfswing #golfvideo #pga #golfclub #cancersucks #thinkpink #golfcourse #golfwrx #golfaddict #Swooshlife #golfvibes #golfreviews #golfswag #golfchannel

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announce multi-year partnership with a focus on philanthropic and game-expanding initiatives

Published

on

Stephen Curry and Callaway Golf announced on Monday a new multi-year partnership which will see the two combine on philanthropic and game-expanding endeavors

Through the partnership, various initiatives will be implemented which the NBA star will undertake with a focus on expanding the game by making it more accessible to underserved and underrepresented youth.

Speaking on the partnership, Curry stated

“I am beyond excited for the opportunity to work with Callaway Golf. Their ability to think outside the box on how we can collectively grow the game of golf is second to none. I can’t wait to begin rolling out some of our ideas to make golf more accessible to boys and girls around the world.”

Recently, the 31-year-old helped Howard University launch their first-ever Division 1 Golf Program, with a pledge to fund the university’s men’s and women’s programs for the next six years. Subsequently, Callaway announced that they would be the official golf equipment provider for the program.

Curry is currently also the Executive Producer for the new ABC mini-golf show, “Holey Moley,” and according to Callaway, the new partnership will also feature co-produced original content in the spirit of Curry’s endeavors in golf.

Chip Brewer, President & CEO, Callaway Golf Company, stated on the partnership that

“We’ve found an incredibly like-minded partner in Stephen. His love of golf is something we at Callaway immediately connected with. And over time we realized we shared much more than that: a vision to create opportunities for access to the sport for people that might not have it. With our support, Stephen is uniquely positioned to create meaningful experiences in golf.”
