Now a LIV Golf player and life member of the DP World Tour although banned from the PGA Tour, the American Patrick Reed had explained his choice to join the controversial circuit to benefit from more free time in order to be more often with his family.

This did not prevent him from frantically chaining tournaments this summer, notably lining up for the BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth and the Cazoo Open de France between two LIV Invitational Series events. During his visit to Paris, when asked about the multiple accusations of cheating against him, Reed replied that he was taking most of his critics to justice.

The lawsuit he filed in August against Golf Channel and consultant Brandel Chamblee but also against Golfweek, who denounced his multiple attempts at cheating, must be heard soon. Reed is seeking $750 million in damages. But his lawyer, Larry Klayman, is not determined to stop there.

It is now the author-writer Shane Ryan, the New York Post, Fox Sports and the Associated Press, among others, who will have to answer to a judge for their accusations. Reed is asking for $250 million in “reparations”.

Larry Klayman claims Shane Ryan must be "morbidly obsessed" with a desire to harm Reed and his family. Two books were cited in the document submitted to American justice: "Slaying the Tiger: A Year Inside the Ropes on the New PGA Tour" released in 2016, and "The Cup They Couldn't Lose: America, The Ryder Cup, and The Long Road to Whistling Straits” on sale since early October.

Main defendant, Shane Ryan posted this comment on Twitter where he explains that he maintains everything he wrote about the winner of the 2018 Masters. Not to a contradiction, Larry Klayman had published several tweets when the American pros began to join the LIV.

He accused them of “selling their souls to the devil” by accepting “bloody money from the Saudis. This was before his client Patrick Reed also joined the ranks of the dissidents.
