Quotable

“It’s amazing, just to be back and to feel like I’ve been playing some solid golf and finally having it pay off and to come out as a victory, it’s been a while. Been a little too long honestly but what better place to do it than here. Have Statue of Liberty in the background, Presidents Cup here in 2017 and hearing Captain America and USA all week, it was a good time to get a W.”
Patrick Reed, The 2019 Northern Trust Champion
