Report Patrick Reed vs. the Rules of Golf in Tour Talk December 10, 2019 I've done from thinking this guy had a rough time earlier in life and was affected by that, hence some of the scrapes he has gotten into.....to just an outright jerk.

But what ever happened to "hey, I didn't mean it. I screwed up. Let's move on, and I can understand why people are upset."
