Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth Get Back to Amiable Old Ways
Duo had been a dreadful team in international competitions but split in 2018. On Thursday, Reed made a run at the U.S. Open lead while supporting Spieth’s topsy-turvy round.
There was a haze in the air when Patrick Reed struck his tee shot on the par 3, 166-yard seventh hole at Winged Foot Golf Club on Thursday morning. The 2020 US Open was only two hours old.
It was hazy, you couldn’t see every shot, said Jordan Spieth, Reed’s first-round playing partner. Patrick’s shot looked like it was left and if it gets left of that hole, it goes off the green.
The Reed watched the ball, 9-iron in hand, as it landed on the green.
But I could not see how many hops it took, he said. Maybe two?
Spieth leaned forward to get a better view.
It kicked straight forward and you could hear it hit the pin, he said, One hop.
