According to McIlroy, when Reed came forward to greet him, he didn’t feel the need to say hello. “I was down by my bag and he came up to me, and I was busy working and sort of doing my practice, and I didn’t really feel like — I didn’t feel the need to acknowledge him,” he said. “So I didn’t see a tee coming my direction at all, but apparently that’s what happened.
