Lol, and Tiger isn't a cocky ******? Reed doesn't bother me, to me it's more confidence than cockiness....but I know they run hand and hand.

 

And obviously I'm a little biased because he's on my fantasy golf team this week :banana:

For me, it's worse when putting. When I practice or play a lot I get shooting pains down my left leg, and its the worst when trying to stand over a put. Idk why.

Yeah, "back pain" can mean about 10000 different things. If it's disc stuff (what I have) then you're talking about pinched nerves, and, oh boy, anything - anything - can be painful. Swinging, putting, standing still, breathing ... It all depends. One of the times my back was the most painful, it was "caused" while tying my shoes. So, yeah, nothing is out of the realm.

Reed looking for an easy bogey at #18 to win this event -- smart move. I remember Tiger going 4-iron, 4-iron, PW (and two putts) to beat Quigley a few years ago. I think he nearly nailed the par putt that day, too.

Edit: and now the guys in the booth have said this too. They should hire me for that job!

Edit 2: It was 2007, and against Brett Wetterich, not Brett Quigley. Oops. Thanks for making me look it up Erik!

Tiger truly looked like he felt horrible. Walking off the 18th green.

He did that last year to beat Stricker: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_WGC-Cadillac_Championship .

 

Maybe he did it another time too… Quigley hasn't had status for a few years now has he?

Er... 2007, but I was wrong about Quigley. It was Wetterich. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_WGC-CA_Championship

At least I got the first name right. That's close, isn't it?

Dunno...but patting yourself on the back like he did in that interview won't win him any fans, that's for sure.

Of course. Right along with Patrick Reed's résumé that he just read to Steve Sands.

You see it as arrogance ... I see it as confidence.

To me, arrogance would be somebody who hasn't won 3 times in the last several months, twice this season, and once 90 seconds ago against the strongest field of the season saying stuff like that.

Reed's not going away anytime soon. He's a gamer. I don't think he's going to have the career of a Tiger or Phil, but I do see him being an ATM machine like Zach Johnson and racking up lots of top-10s, with maybe a major or two mixed in there by the time his career is over. I don't know enough about him to say he's arrogant. Will have to hear more interviews and see how he handles this win. I do think he's confident, though, from what I've heard.

What did he say that was arrogant? I couldn't hear the post-round interview over my family.

They asked him about his "top 5 in the world" comment they aired earlier in the day and he didn't back down from it. He thinks he's really really good, and it don't see a problem with it, because he is. Also, guys go the other way and say too much self deprecating stuff and we blast them for being phony. They can't win.
