How Patrick Reed’s chance at making European Tour history slipped away

Patrick Reed’s bid to make history as the first American to be recast as “European No. 1” came up short at the DP World Tour Championship. Starting in a three-way tie for the lead on Sunday that would have been enough to see Reed win the season-long Race to Dubai title, the former Masters champion was still in prime, albeit precarious, position with a few holes to go.

Which is about the time things started to go wrong.

With three holes to play, Reed could only stumble home. Bogeys at the 16th and 17th were followed by a closing birdie—where he chipped-in for a third time to complete his closing two-under 70.

But that was too little, too late.

And his verdict on all of the above? We’ll never know. The European Tour honorary member had nothing to say at close of play.
