Patrick Reed – Escape Artist

Patrick Reed

From the Scottish Open, which is better? Patrick Reed’s escape shot from the tall fescue at Castle Stuart? Or his ensuing slip-n-slide down the steep hill?

Whichever you prefer, there is no denying that Patrick Reed always seems to give the Scots a great show. (Who can forget the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, when the brash American rookie shushed the European golf fans? See that video below.)

Anyway, here’s the shot — and the graceful exit.

Reed ended up with a bogey on the hole, a 554-yard par 5. Check out live scoring from the Scottish Open in the lead-in to next week’s Open Championship at Royal Troon.

And just for fun, here’s Patrick Reed mixing it up with the Gleneagles crowd:

Patrick Reed, baby.
