Like all true champions, Patrick Reed started young and found success at every level of his career.
He led the University High School (Baton Rouge, Louisiana) golf team to consecutive state
championships and secured Rolex AJGA All-America honors three years running. He also won the Junior
Open Championship in 2006.
Reed then stepped into the national spotlight as part of the Augusta State University Jaguars squad,
who notched two NCAA Division I Championships in 2010 and 2011. During his college years, he also
advanced to the semi-finals of the U.S. Amateur Championship and won the 2010 Jones Cup
Reed made his professional debut in 2011, with 2013 marking his breakout year on the PGA Tour.
Alongside a total of four top 10 finishes, the 23-year-old scored his first professional victory
with a playoff win against Jordan Spieth at the Wyndham Championship.
In 2014, he built on these successes with wins at the Humana Challenge and the
WGC-Cadillac Championship. As a member of Team USA at the Ryder Cup, his stellar play contributed to
wins at the 2014 and 2016 events, earning his nickname “Captain America.”
Reed truly secured his place in golf history with a win at the 2018 Masters Tournament on his home
turf of Augusta National Golf Club.
Reed and his wife Justine have two children. He’s known for his skills at the grill and often
takes over chef duties for his family during tournament weeks.
