Patrick Reed change his mind on St Andrews

Mere days after being seen on the entry list for the famous Links Championship, Saint Andrews' Patrick Reed is no longer among the entrants. The 2018 Masters winner dropped out of the world's top 50 after missing the cut at the French Cazoo Open and was hoping perhaps to make a comeback at the Scottish links of Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and St Andrews.

Patrick Reed, situation

After having chained the BMW PGA Championship of Wentworth, the DS Automobiles Italian Open and the trip to Paris in recent weeks, the LIV ambassador may have had enough of being criticized. Reed, a life member of the DP World Tour since 2019, spoke out about the treatment he received from the tour.

He was not welcome at pro-ams or press conferences. He, however, chose to ignore requests from DP World Tour officials not to wear LIV branded apparel. Patrick Nathaniel Reed, born August 5, 1990 in San Antonio, is an American professional golfer playing on the PGA Tour and the European PGA Tour.

In 2018, he won his first grand slam tournament by winning the Masters in Augusta. After two years spent in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) with the University of Georgia Bulldogs, Patrick Reed defends the colors of the Augusta University Jaguars, winning the NCAA Championship twice, in 2010 and 20111.

During this period, he was undefeated in match-plays. Patrick Reed turned pro in 2011 after the end of the NCAA Men's Golf Championship. He earned his playing card for the 2013 PGA Tour season by taking 22nd place in the 2012 qualifying tournament.

For his debut on this circuit, he won his first professional victory on the Wyndham Championship by beating Jordan Spieth in playoff. He won two new tournaments in 2014, the Humana Challenge and the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Thanks to these results, he obtained his selection in the American team for the Ryder Cup 2014. Despite the defeat of his team, he made a very remarkable debut in the competition by winning 3.5 points in the four games he played.

From the 2015 season, he is also a member of the European PGA Tour. During this season he won his fourth professional victory in the Hyundai Champions Tournament.
