Singapore, Patrick Reed beyond final top 30

Patrick Reed, results

After the DGC Open presented by Mastercard on March 27 in New Delhi (India), Nitithorn Thippong has achieved a second success on the Asian Tour.

The Thai wins at -16 (272), one length ahead of his compatriot Phachara Khongwatmai, Canadian Richard T. Lee and Malaysian Gavin Green. An important event on the 2022 Asian Tour calendar, the International Series Singapore ($1.5 million endowment) offered no less than 22 players playing (or having played) in the LIV Golf Invitational Series launched on June 9 at the Centurion Club, in the suburbs of London.

Among them, the American Patrick Reed, presented as the big favorite for victory. The winner of the 2018 Masters finally had to settle for 31st place and a score of -8, tied with Australian Wade Ormsby and South African Justin Harding, two other members of LIV Golf who also play on the DP World Tour.

Sixteen of the twenty-two players affiliated with the Breakaway League crossed the cut Friday night in Singapore. In addition to Khongwatmai, second one length behind the winner, we find in the top 10 the Japanese Ryosuke Kinoshita and the American Peter Uihlein.

The latter will also be at the start of the International Series Korea scheduled from August 18 to 21 at the Lotte Skyhill Country Club in Jeju (South Korea). Also announced as a starter a few weeks ago in Korea, Patrick Reed does not currently appear in the field of this $1.5 million tournament.

What is however the case of the Frenchman Lionel Weber, in possession of a category 16 this season on the Asian circuit! This is the result.
