It seems the only person allowed to mock Patrick Reed is Patrick Reed
If there is one thing we’ve learned in the past few months it’s that Patrick Reed is allowed to mock himself, but no one else can make a joke at his expense.
So it was at the Players Championship, where only one round was played before it was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, where a fan was ejected for asking Reed a simple question.
The incident gained traction when No Laying Up tweeted this…
Met a group of guys this morning in town from Ohio, here to see some golf. I see one of them an hour later riding shotgun in a golf cart with a security officer.
“Don’t ask Patrick Reed to sign your shovel.”

Then the fan, knowing what we all wanted, tweeted the video…
— patrick reed didnt sign my shovel (@mac_bellovich) March 12, 2020
If you can’t hear him, he says: “Hey Patrick, can you sign my shovel?”
Funny, harmless, and remarkably polite.
But he was immediately cornered by a Players official and marched off the premises – not that he missed much as the tournament was cancelled after 18 holes.
Cheers, Mac. We all needed a laugh.
