remains unapologetic for what transpired after the Ryder Cup in Paris, doubling down on his and even dragging into the mix.
“It was just a lack of communication,” Reed said according to. “Jordan’s an awesome player. Him and I seem to always play really well together, and there were some decisions that were made that I didn’t agree with that captain (Furyk) thought were right.”
Reed is referring to captain‘s decision to split him and , who both had success in the previous two Ryder Cups they played in.
“You had to look at the breakdown of all the guys on the team and what was best for the entire team, not just one or two individuals. So you split up Jordan and I, right? Then you split up Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler, who have played great golf together – groupings that had been proven successful in that format. So it was about the team, not one or two individuals.’’
Reed was asked if he’d spoken to Spieth at all since Paris.
“Nope, he has my number,”
The defending Masters champion then compared his post-Ryder Cup comments to Mickelson’s 2014 rant about captain Tom Watson’s strategy, suggesting a double standard exists.
“He did it and got praised,’’ Reed said. “I did it and got destroyed. It all depends on who the person is, obviously.’’
Despite the fallout after USA’s disappointing 17.5-10.5 loss to the Europeans, Reed isn’t worried his “Captain America” nickname is tainted.
“I’m still 3-0 in singles.”
