Ahead of this week’s Porsche European Open, Patrick Reed has unveiled his new ride – a Masters-themed Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

It may be 18 months since his Masters triumph, but it looks as if Reed isn’t prepared to let people forget it. The 29-year-old took to social media on Tuesday where he posted images of the vehicle along with the following statement

“Great to be back in Hamburg, Germany for the Porsche European Open! Before I left, I broke in my commemorative Masters GT2RS! Excited to play the next three events on the @EuropeanTour.”

For those wondering, the starting price for a 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS model is approximately $294,000.

Reed is set to play the next three events on the European Tour, the Porsche European Open in Germany, the KLM Open in the Netherlands, and the European Tour’s flagship event – the BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth. 

What do you make of the Texan’s new Masters-themed ride, WRXers?

    There’s a lot of stupid people making stupid comments about this car. I’m sure those people are F150 truck drivers. That car is a street legal race car, that’s also super reliable. That’s a beautiful car. Amazing wheels one of the best cars on the planet.

    Keep driving those crappy F150’s boys. Leave the real cars to us golfers.

    That rear spoiler is garbage. Looks like something some kid bolted on to the trunk of his Honda Civic.

      Dude you guys are nuts. The GT2 RS is the most track ready capable production car you can buy. This Porsche will out track any other production car out there w/o changing a single mod. Many do not even have a radio, ac or even door handles. (Instead they are just pull straps to save weight) . This “garbage” wing will keep PD alive once he is above 100mph to help keep the 700rwhp planted.
      Now PD probably could have done fine with a GT3 RS, 911r Turbo or even Porsche 919 Hybrid.

      But then again we all want the $10k Scotty or brand new driver every year even though we don’t deserve them either.

    Love the GT2 RS but if he wanted it to be Masters themed he should have gone with Porsche Irish Green. It is closer to Augusta green in my opinion.

Brooks Koepka hits out at the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” attached to golf

Published

on

Never one to pull punches, Brooks Koepka has slammed the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” associated with golf which he feels is damaging the progression of the sport.

In an in-depth interview with GQ Magazine, the four-time major champion discussed a multitude of topics, and Koepka explained that the “gentleman sport” tag attached to golf is one of the reasons preventing more people from getting involved in the game.

“Hockey, you go to blows and then sit in the box for a couple minutes. Golf’s just held to a different standard. Because it’s supposed to be a gentleman’s sport. And that’s where I think they lose a lot of people. They just do.”

Asked what he would change about the sport if he had the chance, Koepka was quick to sound off on the “stuffiness” and “country club atmosphere” which he believes is one of the biggest problems the sport has in attracting more support.

“One thing I’d change is maybe the stuffiness. Golf has always had this persona of the triple-pleated khaki pants, the button-up shirt, very country club atmosphere, where it doesn’t always have to be that way. That’s part of the problem. 

Everybody always says, ‘You need to grow the game.’ Well, why do you need to be so buttoned-up? ‘You have to take your hat off when you get in here.’ ‘You’re not allowed in here unless you’re a member—or unless the member’s here.’ Really? 

I just never really liked the country club atmosphere. I know that drives a lot of people away from liking me. But just ’cause this golf club has such prestige and the members are all famous and have a lot of money…like, why can’t I show up and just go play the golf course? Why do I have to sit in my car and wait for the member?”

The 29-year-old further explained how he doesn’t feel like no rules would be the answer, but how a more relaxed approach would prevent the feeling of “walking on eggshells” when at a golf course.

“I’m not saying no rules is the answer. But it’s like, you want everyone to enjoy themselves when they’re there, you don’t want to feel like you’re walking on eggshells when you arrive at the golf course. I don’t like feeling like I’m walking on eggshells everywhere I go.”

Brooks Koepka is in action this week at the Honda Classic and will tee it up alongside Matthew Wolff and Keith Mitchell for the opening two rounds.

European Tour pro reveals that he is currently blocked by Patrick Reed on Twitter

Published

on

On Tuesday in the Twittersphere, European Tour pro Eddie Pepperell revealed that Patrick Reed has blocked him on the social media platform.

Pepperell dropped the news in a casual tweet where he said

“(From what I’m aware of) Two people have blocked me on Twitter. Patrick Reed, and Jameela Jamil. Interesting couple they would make! (I was also once blocked by a namesake sports writer from the Guardian but he’s seemingly unblocked me now… Joy)”

Back in December, following Reed’s waste bunker controversy at the Hero, the Englishman slammed the 29-year-old in a tweet asking “What the f–k were you thinking?!” – which likely didn’t go down well with the 2018 Masters Champion.

While it appears Pepperell and Reed aren’t exactly on the best of terms, Bryson DeChambeau is one notable name who has backed the Texan.

Following Reed’s impressive WGC-Mexico win, DeChambeau told Golf Channel that himself and Reed sometimes get a bad rap and that “we understand each other’s pain sometimes.”
