Patrick Reed’s Twitter suggests that he’s fuming with Stricker’s Ryder Cup snub

Published

on

The omission of Patrick Reed from the 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup team was the big talking point on Wednesday as Steve Stricker made his six picks for the biennial contest that gets underway later this month.

The Texan has an imposing 7-3-2 career record at the Ryder Cup but will be watching the event this year from home after Captain Stricker decided against selecting Reed.

The 54-year-old told media on Wednesday that Reed took the news of his exclusion like a “true champion,” but if the Texan’s activity on Twitter is anything to go by, it’s clear that the 2018 Masters winner is not impressed by the snub.

Following the announcement, Reed liked multiple posts from users on the social media platform who were heavily critical of Stricker’s decision, which suggests that the 31-year-old isn’t one bit pleased with the captain.

Here’s a look at some of the posts Reed liked on Wednesday on Twitter

Stricker pinpointed the “uncertainty of his health,” as one of the primary reasons for Reed’s exclusion, following the Texan’s recent recovery from bilateral pneumonia which left him battling for his life.

The Wisconsin native instead used his six selections on Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth.

*Update*

Patrick Reed has since unliked the above tweets on the social media platform.

    All the Reed haters just hate that he has spoken the truth about the uppity frat boy golf mentality of the “Ryder Cup Group”. Exact reason why the Europeans continue to kick our a**. USA is too worried about PR than whatever it takes to win. We need a few personalities like Reed, Kisner and Horschel on the team, rather than a bunch of media dolls.

    I was hoping Reed would be picked. So that the world golfing press could cross-examine Reed on live video about the fundamentally unbelievable details from Reed about his hospitalization.

    He had been vaccinated? When?
    He was never tested for COVID while a patient in a major Houston medical center, being treated for double pneumonia? Huh?!? That would be malpractice if true. Shame on Reed for throwing his treaters under the bus like that. It’s almost as bad as Reed’s stupidity.
    But wait; he was tested upon his hospital release, and was negative? Why do you even say stuff like that, Patrick? You expect us to believe that you were never tested for COVID while you were a patient, but that you were tested as you were being discharged?
    You were never treated for COVID? Nobody ever said to you that you were being treated for COVID?

    There is one easy way to settle this, and that is for Reed to authorize his attending physician at Houston Methodist to answer questions, even if the questions were strictly limited to the most basic questions about Reed’s diagnosis and treatment for that one admission, and nothing else personal.

    As much as I dislike Reed, this is a ridiculous story. Liking a couple of fans’ tweets when they come to your defense = “fuming”. Stop it.

    The picture of him shushing is ironic, since he should be the one to shut his stupid mouth.

    BTW…he embedded that ball in San Diego with his finger….no one around and he pushed in the ground.

    It’s an exhibition. A continent vs 12 individuals who were born/have citizenship in the United States. Since 1995, this event has lost its glory as it has become political theater for the PGA of America and an inconvenience for the top American players. Gone are the days where a captain would say to his players ““Boys, there’s nothing to being the captain of the Ryder Cup.” or “You guys are all great players. Pairing is really easy” or “But let me tell you boys one thing – I don’t want my name on that trophy as a losing captain.”

    It’s all a week of self promotion for majority of the guys there.

    Reed doesn’t deserve to be playing for his country. He has significant character flaws and has thrown his teammates under the bus before. I would rather see a unified American team playing with honor and lose than to have Reed causing problems off-course (and possibly cheating on-course) and the the team win while leaving a bad taste in the collective mouth of the golfing world.

    • John

      Spoken like so many Americans these days……they’d rather be a loser than a winner. Reed is only offensive to weak-minded people that don’t understand Blue Collar America.

    I actually like the salt. Good on him for badly wanting to represent his country again. He has proven he belongs several times. I appreciate a good grudge-holding.

    There is so much negativity towards this guy. Im gonna zag. Putting on on my Team Patrick shirt, wearing it proudly.

      I’m a huge Tiger, Phil, Jordan, JT, etc. fan, and I bet they have never improved their lie on the course, huh? They never place their club behind the ball in the rough like Reed gets criticized for, huh? They never touch the sand in waste areas, huh? Total BS.

      I’m sure you’re a perfect rule follower too, huh?

    Is he going to blame Jordan Spieth again. He complained last time Jordan didn’t want to play with him. From what I read he begged to play with Tiger Woods.

    Liking a tweet is not the same as originating it. Secondarily, is there a mandate that all players are vaccinated? Should be! Choice is up to players. Consequences are owned by the players. No vaccine…….no Ryder Cup.

      Sep 21, 2021 at 2:27 pm

      Yeah…….because having a vaccine totally affects someone’s golfing ability.

19th Hole

11 year old records two holes in one in the span of seven holes

Published

on

In a U.S. Kids Golf Tournament over the weekend, 11-year old Jake Martinez did the near impossible by recording two hole in ones in the same round.

Golf Digest reported that in round one of the Palm Springs open, the Tucson native got off to a rocky start by double bogeying the first and third holes. Yet his fortunes turned on the fifth hole when he aced the 95-yard par three. Just seven holes later, on the 100 yard par three twelve hole, Martinez hit the same club.

“It’s 100 yards, so I hit pitching wedge again. My dad says the exact same thing, aim left, try to draw it in there. It does the same exact thing as the last one, it hits and then it drops. We were all just in awe,” Martinez commented after the round.

Martinez recorded a first one 74, and followed it up with a final round 76 to finish in 14th place. While winning the tournament was the goal, two aces, a feat golfers spend decades trying to achieve, is certainly a worthy consolation prize.

‘What the f**k you doing?’ – Former Masters champ tells Brooks Koepka to ‘get a life’

Published

on

Former Masters champion Ian Woosnam has launched a stinging attack on Brooks Koepka days before the U.S. take on Europe in the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.

Last week, Golf Digest published its exclusive interview with Koepka, where the 31-year-old aired his feelings on the Ryder Cup, calling the biennial event ‘a bit odd’ and that he finds the week ‘tough’.

Those comments angered former U.S. captain Paul Azinger who called on Brooks to relinquish his spot if he didn’t enjoy the competition. Now former European Captain Ian Woosnam has been the latest to hit out at the 4-time major champ.

Speaking at Ilkley Golf Club last week ahead of a Legends Tour event, the Welshman blasted the 31-year-old saying:

“The article Koepka has just done, that’s not nice for his team. It’s not good. He’s basically said, ‘I could do without this, it’s getting me out of my routine doing this’. “Christ almighty – get a life!”

Woosnam continued:

“If I was captain and it was one of my players, I’d be saying ‘What the f**k you doing?’ All this crap he’s got going with DeChambeau – is it that bad or is it just false? Either way, it’s not good for Stricker.”

The 2006 European Captain wasn’t exactly complimentary towards Brooks’ rival Bryson DeChambeau either and also accused Koepka of arrogance and shrugging off his peers.

“Who’d want to play with him (Bryson)? It wouldn’t surprise me if neither of them played before the singles. They’re already making excuses. You hear all this stuff last time between Dustin Johnson and Koepka. Is there something going on with Koepka?

Is he one of these guys who likes to stir everything? Is it arrogance? It’s almost like he’s shrugging them all off and saying I don’t want to be like you.”

The 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup kicks off Friday morning in Kohler, Wisconsin at the Pete Dye designed Whistling Straits.
