Patrick Reed’s Porsche found in a scrapyard


Patrick Reed is often in the news with his provocative remarks, even more so since he left the PGA Tour to play on Greg Norman’s rebel LIV Golf circuit. In this case, it is an unprecedented and incomprehensible fact: how a superb Porsche that he had offered himself after his victory at the 2018 Masters, three strokes ahead of Rory McIlroy, she said could have arrived damaged, unusable, in a car junkyard in Houston, Texas?

Patrick Reed, Porsche

This Porsche 911 GT2 RS was a limited series, painted green (British Racing Green), with yellow brake calipers, which are exactly the base colors of the Augusta Masters. It had probably cost the American player half a million dollars. But he must not have used it much, since his counter shows a ridiculous mileage: 360 miles (just over 500 km). She was obviously involved in a traffic accident. We don’t know more…

Patrick Nathaniel Reed, born August 5, 1990 in San Antonio, is an American professional golfer playing on the PGA Tour and the European PGA Tour. In 2018, he won his first grand slam tournament by winning the Masters in Augusta.

Patrick Reed turned pro in 2011 after the end of the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship. He earned his playing card for the 2013 PGA Tour season by taking 22nd place in the 2012 qualifying tournament.

For his debut on this circuit, he won his first professional victory on the Wyndham Championship by beating Jordan Spieth in playoff.

He won two new tournaments in 2014, the Humana Challenge and the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Thanks to these results, he obtained his selection in the American team for the Ryder Cup 2014. Despite the defeat of his team, he made a very remarkable debut in the competition by winning 3.5 points in the four games he played .

From the 2015 season, he is also a member of the European PGA Tour. During this season he won his fourth professional victory in the Hyundai Champions Tournament.

In 2016, he won the Barclays, a tournament counting for the playoffs of the Fedex Cup. This victory secures him a second selection within the American selection for the Ryder Cup. During this contested edition in Chaska, Minnesota, finally won by the score of 17 to 11 by the American team, he was the player earning the most points for his team with 3.5 points.

In April 2018, he managed scores of 69, 66 and 67 in the first three rounds of the Masters at Augusta1, occupying the top spot at the end of this third round. In the fourth round, he failed to get a fourth score below 70, which had never been achieved at the Masters1, but thanks to a birdie on hole number 15, then three pars, he managed to keep the head to win by one stroke ahead of Rickie Fowler and two against Jordan Spieth, author of a card of 64 on this round.
