‘Now it is turning personal’: Patrick Reed hits back after Presidents Cup opponents’ ‘cheating’ accusations

Who says the Presidents Cup is a pathetic copy of the Ryder Cup because it does not have any needle? This week it certainly has an edge with Patrick Reed telling his International opponents that they have made the match “personal” after accusing him of “cheating”.

Reed was penalised two shots for illegally improving his lie in last week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, but although the video footage of him moving sand in a waste bunker with a practice swing is damning, he has maintained that it was not intentional and that a misleading camera angle was to blame for the ensuing social media storm.’ data-reactid=”28″>Reed was penalised two shots for illegally improving his lie in last week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, but although the video footage of him moving sand in a waste bunker with a practice swing is damning, he has maintained that it was not intentional and that a misleading camera angle was to blame for the ensuing social media storm.

Woods has backed Reed, calling him “a great kid who handled a tough upbringing well”. He confirmed that he spoke to Reed about the incident on the flight down under, but revealed it was only a brief conversation.

“It [cheating] is not the right word to use,” Reed said. “If you do something unintentionally that breaks the rules, it’s not considered cheating… If you’re intentionally trying to do something, that would be considered cheating, but I wasn’t intentionally trying to improve a lie or anything like that.”
