Patrick Reed’s Ryder Cup Outlook

Best asset: He’s Captain America! For years, the U.S. side needed a fiery foil to European lightning rod Ian Poulter, and they’ve found it in Reed, who similarly channels a level of emotion and passion that remains unparalleled from his teammates’.

Worst asset: Recent form. Since winning the Masters in April, it’s been only a so-so year for Reed, who hasn’t exactly struggled but hasn’t played his best golf, either.

Ryder Cup Confidence Rating: 8 out of 10. Undoubtedly paired with Jordan Spieth once again, Reed should own a strong comfort level in a decidedly uncomfortable environment. Don’t be surprised to see him shushing the European galleries throughout the weekend.

Expert Predictions: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Over
Mears: Over
