Leave it to sand-swiping, grass-compressing, tee-tossing Patrick Reed to find yet another way to, let’s say, bend the Rules Of Golf.
During last Saturday’s second round of the Dubai Desert Classic, Reed’s tee shot at the 17th hole (driveable par four) was lost in a tree — but which tree?
The Duke Of Defamation Law Suits, was 100 percent sure he could identify his ball in one of those palm trees that line the right side of the hole.
Reed took a drop, and a one-shot penalty and played on.
Not long after the incident, a video showed Reed’s ball apparently landing in a different tree.
The dogs from the DogLegNews Dog House have offered to show Reed how to bark up the right tree.
