AmericaOn January 30, Patrick Reed enjoyed the right to drop the ball without penalty in hole 10, the penultimate round of Farmers Insurance Open – the PGA Tour event in San Diego.

Reed stands T2 with a score of -8 after 36 holes. Yesterday, January 30, he fought with Will Gordon and Robby Shelton. All three come from hole 1, South par72. By the end of the first half, Reed did not bogey, scoring an eagle and three birdies. Into the par4 10 hole, Reed played 297 yards, into the bunker on the fairway. He escaped on the second, 132 yards out, but the ball hit the thick grass on the left side of the green.

Patrick Reed's disposal on the third-round Farmers Insurance Open third hole

Reed handled the situation in the rough hole 10 grass area.

Reed thinks the embedded ball should be picked up and marked the position and called referee Brad Fabel to continue processing. Before, however, Reed asked a nearby volunteer and his team-mates and their cadres about the possibility of the ball bouncing before entering the rough. Because if it bounces, Reed must strike where it is. Everyone shook their heads at Reed’s question.

Referee Fabel came, reviewed and confronted Reed. In the end, he said “the ball is quick,” so Reed is allowed to drop the ball without penalty within the designated area. From his new position, a driver’s handle and no closer to the hole, Reed put the ball into the green, 4.2 meters from the target and kept par.

For the rest, Reed added just one birdie, to four bogeys. He closed the round of 70 strokes and together with Carlos Ortiz stood T1 at -10.

But the story at hole 10 is not done. Radio CBS re-examined the course and slow-motion video showed Reed’s ball bouncing once before entering the rough.

“I do not see the second sinking ball,” commented expert and golfer Nick Faldo. Jim Nantz – the host of the post-round commentary: “The vision is not good”.

“At that time there were three players, three cadres and volunteers standing very close to the ball. Nobody saw it bouncing. Then the referee came and confirmed the right to drop the ball without penalty. I made the rules.” Reed said. “If the whole group sees the ball bouncing or someone says so I would have hit it from the beginning, there’s no way I could pick it up and mark the spot like that.”

Know the surgical operation CBS, Head of Arbitration Team John Mutch reviewed with Reed’s team. He concluded Reed handled the procedure properly. “Patrick is valid,” said Mutch. Meanwhile, Gordon and Shelton declined to comment.

Reed and Ortiz are taking a two-stroke lead over a group of T3 consisting of five players, including world second golfer Jon Rahm and Adam Scott – 2013 major Masters champions. The T8 team with -7 has four people, including four. former world number one Rory McIlroy.

Reed had a reputation in the bunker escape phase at Hero World Challenge 2019. At that time, the television lens caught the scene of Reed sweeping the club’s head many times on the trap floor before making his hand. This action is considered fraud because it gives the advantage of handling the situation. After that, Reed was fined two strokes. Born in 1990, he played nine years professionally, winning Masters 2018 in eight PGA Tour championships and three European Tour trophies.
