The one guy who obviously doesn’t understand that there’s no “me” in “team” is, of course, Patrick Reed.
Reed won the Masters last year then went on to underperform the rest of the season and then didn’t fare too well at the Ryder Cup. Afterward he threw team captain Jim Furyk under the bus along with former partner Jordan Spieth and just about anyone besides himself.
The subject was brought up again this week in the Bahamas and Reed spouted these words of wisdom:
“It’s something that I love and cherish and hopefully will continue playing really good golf when I represent the country and keep on bringing it in those events,” Reed said. “Being 3-0 in singles is something cool because you always want to feel like you can be counted on toward the end, especially during a Ryder Cup.”
Of course Reed ignored the team concept and bragged about his individual record.
He was also asked if he’s spoken to Jordan Spieth since the Ryder Cup. “He has my number,” replied Reed, obviously indicating it would be cold day in hell before he reaches out to Spieth anytime soon.
So we’ve sentenced “Woe is Me” Patrick Reed to the Dog House. He can sit there and tell all the dogs how good he is.
