Patrick Reed, total failure at the Golf National

An important executive of the highly controversial LIV Golf, Patrick Reed totally missed his visit to the French Open this week. Author of two cards of 73 and 72, the American has not even crossed the cut and will find himself ejected from the world top 50 for the first time on Monday after more than eight years of presence.

Patrick Reed, Golf National

With his LIV Golf cap and his “Ultra Brite” smile, Patrick Reed did not go unnoticed this week at Le Golf National. Back on the Albatross for the first time since the 2018 Ryder Cup where he and the United States had seriously bitten the dust (defeat 17.5 to 10.5), the American winner of the 2018 Masters this time took the broth by failing to cross the cut this Friday.

Two cards of 73 (+2) and 72 (+1) prevent him from continuing the Parisian adventure on the Yvelin route. The Texan thus finished in 110th place, three points from a cut set in par. This is a serious setback for the one who is no longer nicknamed "Captain America" ​​at home in the States since his exodus to the very controversial LIV Golf supported by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia.

In pursuit of world points, Reed finally drew a blank. Worse, by staying at the dock after 36 holes in this 104th edition of the oldest tournament in continental Europe, he will leave the world top 50 for the first time in more than eight years.

He appeared there in January… 2014! A life member of the DP World Tour since 2019, he will however have a chance to “catch up” next week in Scotland at the Dunhill Links Championship ($5 million prize pool).

Like other LIV Golf colleagues (Talor Gooch, Charl Schwartzel, Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen, etc.), Patrick Reed will be at the start of this prestigious European Tour tournament where Frenchman Victor Perez won at the end of September 2019.

Patrick Nathaniel Reed is an American professional golfer. He has nine PGA Tour tournament wins, including a major championship, the 2018 Masters Tournament and two world golf championships, the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship and the 2020 WGC-Mexico Championship.
