‘Troublemaker’ Patrick Reed (USA, photo) has been accused of violating the rules. DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) Hero Dubai Desert Classic (total prize money: $9 million) held at Emirates Golf Club (par 72, 7428 yards) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the 29th (local time), 3rd round, 17th hole (par 4) from
Reed’s tee shot went off the fairway and headed for a large palm tree. The ball landed between the branches of a palm tree and did not fall. Reed declared unplayable after noticing that his binoculars had landed his ball in the gap between branches, and hit his third shot near the tree for a one-stroke penalty. He failed to get the ball on the green, but holed out bogey.
After the game, however, allegations arose that Reid pretended to check his ball. In the game video released through social network service (SNS), Reed’s batting ball seemed to be headed for a different tree, not the tree where Reed found the ball. If Reed couldn’t see where his tee shot was, he had to go back to the teeing ground and hit a third shot.
Reed jumped up. “Obviously he checked my ball,” he claimed, “if he hadn’t confirmed it was 100 percent mine, he would have gone to the teeing ground.” The match commissioner said, “We identified the tree on which Reed’s ball landed and confirmed the ball marked by Reed with binoculars.”
Reid has been accused of cheating and breaking the rules a few times before. CBS broadcasting course commentator Peter Costis said, “I witnessed at least four violations of the rules by Reed improving his lie while playing in PGA Tour tournaments.” 메이저사이트
Prior to the opening of this tournament, Reed caused a stir by throwing a wooden tee at Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), the world’s No. The American media, which called this incident ‘Trigate’, wrote the situation on this day as ‘Trigate’.
Reed, the 2018 Masters winner, is often the subject of gossip. He was expelled from the golf club for reasons such as ‘knowledge’, theft, and drinking while at the University of Georgia. He is in a state of disrepair with his family. Relationships soured with his parents, who opposed his marriage to Justin, who was four years older than him. This is why Reid is not popular in American society, which values his family culture. At the 2014 US Open, he made a salient move that kicked his parents and sister off the course who were following him.
