To a vast majority of golf fans (and tour pros alike), the annual Masters Tournament and the biennial Ryder Cup are the two most anticipated events on the pro golf calendar.

In 2016, Patrick Reed put on arguably the greatest performance in Ryder Cup history and 18 months later won the 2018 Masters Tournament.

Think about that, again: Reed, despite all the hate thrown his way, owns a Green Jacket, two Ryder Cup trophies… and arguably the greatest match-play performance in the Cup’s storied history, when he took down Rory McIlroy in Sunday Singles. (He also won eight other times on the PGA Tour, including two World Golf Championships, and represented the U.S. in two Olympic Games, among other highlights.)

Yet, despite those historic experiences, Reed said being part of the LIV Golf tour, with its unique team format, was the “best thing” he’s “ever been part of.”

“Yeah. I’ll be obviously telling guys truthfully what I felt about the week, what I felt about just how they run an event and everything,” said Reed when asked if he’ll be recruiting PGA Tour players.

“I mean, just the thought of having basically 14 team events like this, I mean, I can’t wait. I can’t wait for the next one.

“I mean, just to see how many people came out, how excited they were and just how pumped up the people were, for me it’s unbelievable.

“I know all the guys, the ones that do end up coming and the ones that — the guys that do come are just going to absolutely love it, and the guys that don’t, they’re missing out.

“This is the best thing I’ve ever been a part of, and I can’t wait just to keep on going and having some more fun with it.”


  1. They all looked like they were having fun. I could not stop watching. Tried taking a bathroom break for about 2 hours but couldn’t tune out. Fast paced, great format, rowdy fans. I am hooked!
  2. How is this team golf? Am I missing something or are they just adding up score cards after the fact. I think Reed, Gooch, DJ, have a little inside joke game going on with the media of who can make most outlandish claim.
