One person that has publicly declined.
There have been others over the years that have declined before there was any public announcement.
A few from Trump, a few from previous Presidents.
I will disagree on the second point.
As to your first.
Charles Lindbergh accepted the Congressional Medal of Honor, France's Legion of Honor, and the Order Of The German Eagle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_German_Eagle).
I bought a small sheet of polycarbonate at Home Depot, 8"x10", to place behind my ball for feedback on my mat. It was like 5 bucks. It is held in place by tees. You definitely know when you hit a fat shot...
I have never really held a negative opinion of Reed. Tremendous talent. Probably a much tougher upbringing than most PGA Tour pros to begin with. Probably lights a fire that makes him as good as he is.
Hit 118 during testing after doing my protocol. Also swung my driver (without a ball) just to compare. My median was 112 today with the blue stick and topped my driver out at 112. I'd say the median driver was 110. When I hit balls the driver is 110 maxed out and 107 at the median. Mind you, I'm not trying to max out my swing when I'm hitting balls. So currently I'm around:
Blue Stick Driver w/o ball Driver w/ ball
Max 118 112 110
Med 112 110 107
When I first started I was around 102 hitting balls with the driver. I'm playing on Monday so I'll be curious to see how it goes. I've already played once since i've started and it feels pretty good. I don't feel like I'm over-swinging...just being more aggressive.

This reinforces the advice that Lowest Score Wins discusses, GIR and nGIR are King and Queen and off the tee is also very important.
