I said perhaps.-Not weak if its true. Youre new here so you have not had to deal with Ricky Bobbys constant Tiger Haterade. WHen confronted with Tommys infidelity he ignores it, but cares a whole lot about Tigers. YOu explain it.

Not a Tiger thread guys. Further Tiger or Watson posts will be removed.

Not that I agree with Rick, but there was a lot of banter when Donald was #1 about how he wasn't really deserving of the slot given he'd never won a Major.

 

Reed has plenty of years to win a major, I don't think anyone expects him to win one this year except for maybe himself.

Right, but those people can't have it both ways.  If they're going to criticize Reed for calling himself Top 5 and use the fact that the OWGR says otherwise as part of the reason why he's wrong (some here have) then they can't turn around and throw the OWGR out the window and say its wrong when it doesn't fit their own bastardized definition.  Know what I mean?

Sure do, #1 OWGR doesn't require a Major win.  No one knows with certainty how Reed meant Top 5, if it was OWGR, overall, PGA Tour, etc.  @Rick Martin probably doesn't like Reed because he is a Tiger fan and wears black and red on Sundays.

I'm not sure that any player this side of the implementation of cameras, microphones and reporters not burying stories can meet @Rick Martin's standards for very long.

only reason why i think he isn't arrogant. is because at that level you have to believe that in order to achieve top 5 status. personally i dont think he is top 5 but he has the right mental attitude

If Reed had just said "can be" instead of "am", he would have been praised for his self confidence.  I think he will learn.

Your exactly right. Well said
post #282 of 375
Believing in yourself, being confident, and be arrogant are to different things. Patrick Reed is arrogant, maybe he will learn the different soon.

Well said, I prefer to think I'm Top 5 and have someone tell me I am rather than have to declare it myself. 

 

If Reed would have said "can be" there would have been no story and he'd have saved himself some grief but he also wouldn't be as well known as he is today.

The irony is that that is probably what he meant to say, and it came out as "am" during the interview. It's tough being a public figure.

I thought this, he may have even meant to say, he feels like he's playing like a top 5 player, which wouldn't be a bad thing to say either.

 

It's tough speaking on camera, especially for a young guy who hasn't done it that many times, he probably just wasn't thinking straight because of nerves/adrenalin/happiness etc.

 

You always realise how good presenters etc. are on camera, when you see someone from the public get interviewed, and they come across as a complete brainless moron, I see it all the time in the UK with football fans.

This is exactly what I've thought all along as well.:beer:

post #287 of 375

ye never thought of it that way. he should have said he is capable of being top 5, not he is top 5

post #288 of 375

I think he has ruined his career with fans for his smart ass remarks. He is an insult to the game
