Bad boy for life
Newly-crowned US Masters champion Patrick Reed is the most controversial golfer ever to don the fabled green jacket – apart from one Eldrick Tiger Woods, of course. The Texan, who won the coveted title with a final round of 71 at Augusta, has been dogged by scandal since his university days. He was forced to leave the University of Georgia after allegations of cheating on the course, stealing and drinking incidents, and was in hot water again later on for using a homophobic term while ranting to himself during an event in Shanghai. He also has an ongoing feud with his estranged family, who treat him “like their meal ticket”.
Let’s hope Reed can leave the rough behind him – he certainly has the talent to be a great of the game.
