Here’s one LIV star on his way to the Asian Tour

Not yet the ‘en masse’ approach Paul Casey promised, but Patrick Reed will tee up in Asia for the next two weeks

 

Just two weeks after another LIV recruit, Paul Casey, suggested players were plotting to earn world ranking points by showing up “en masse” to the Asian Tour, Patrick Reed has committed to teeing up at two International Series events in Singapore and South Korea.

LIV Golf is currently undergoing the application process to be part of the OWGR, meaning the league’s defectors risk being unable compete in next year’s majors if their world rankings fall below qualification criteria.

Ranked 46th in the world, Reed is the only LIV player announced for the two events so far, but other star names could well follow in their bid to stop the slump of declining world rankings.

The announcement comes just weeks after Reed fired shots at the PGA Tour over their lengthy schedule and lack of weeks off.

“We actually have an off-season where not only can we get healthy, work on our bodies, but we’re basically allowing ourselves throughout the year to try to peak at the right times rather than feeling like you have to play every week,” Reed said at the time.

“On top of it, just the quality of life for us as players now. You know, having less events, being able to spend more time at home with the family.

“Not sitting there and having to play three, four weeks in a row, then have a week off, and during that week off you’re preparing trying to get ready for the next week.”
