Is Patrick Reed unhappy with Steve Sticker’s team choice?

Patrick Reed might be happy about not being a part of the Ryder Cup. Not being selected as Sticker’s pick, the golfer had one chance to make it to the Ryder Cup. Of course, Reed seems to have found his own way to cope on the scene, even letting his friends take the heat.

As per reports, Reed liked a bunch of tweets that were against US Team captain Steve Stricker. Eventually, he went back and deleted them. The tweets were all about Stricker making a mistake by not choosing Reed, who should have been on the roster.

On his end, Stricker has revealed that he has lost sleep Reed’s selection.“It was a very hard conversation,” Stricker said.I called him first thing. He was my first call. I just — I knew, you know, that it was going to be hard”. Stricker added that it looked like Reed handled it like a champion and took it well. While he was disappointed, Stricker said that he said all the right things and handled the situation really well.

That being said, there are some players that could step in if one withdraws. While no name was taken, Reed could be one of them. Stricker’s team also has many rookies on it, another point of concern for some fans.
