Patrick Reed swerves the issue

Feb 21st, 2020

It was inevitable that Patrick Reed, who is playing at the WGC event in Mexico City this week, was going to be asked about the latest comments from Bob Kostis and Brooks Koepka. Talking after Thursday’s first round he managed to dance around the question.   

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Feb 20th, 2020

We thought Brooks Koepka had rather put the boot into Patrick Reed with his comments about building sandcastles but ex-CBS golf commentator Peter Kostis went even further this week inferring that Reed was a serial cheat.

Patrick Reed shame on you

Patrick Reed shame on you

Dec 7th, 2019

To say that Patrick Reed is not one of the most popular players on tour would be somewhat of an understatement.

The Lefty Challenge gathers momentum

The Lefty Challenge gathers momentum

Mar 21st, 2020

I must say as a lefty I am in awe of these young pros who seem to be able to switch around and bomb the ball, playing left-handed. It is well known that lefty-in-chief Phil Mickelson is very handy playing right-handed, but it seems a couple of the world's best can switch round with ease and bomb it!
