“When the US Ryder Cup team’s chartered jet from France arrived in Atlanta on Monday afternoon, word of Patrick Reed’s published rant about being “blindsided’’ by captain Jim Furyk not pairing him with Jordan Spieth had circulated and left some team members livid at his audacity,” writes Mark Cannizzaro in the NY Post.
Reed and Spieth were 4-1-2 when paired together in the 2014 and 2016 Ryder Cups and, including Presidents Cup play, they’re 8-1-3 overall. Furyk opted to pair Spieth with his close friend Justin Thomas and the pair went 3-1 together.
One member of Team USA was shocked when he saw Reed complaining about not being paired with Spieth.
“He is so full of s–t,’’ the source told The Post on Monday. “Blindsided my ass. He begged to play with Tiger.’’
