Patrick Reed has faced some criticism over the past few months for choosing to play in DP World Tour events after making the controversial move to join LIV Golf.
When the former Masters champion made his decision, he commented that he wanted to spend more time with his children.
“He dresses as an athlete, he dresses as a man, he dresses as a father, and that to me, I feel like that was the best decision ever,” Reed said at the time. “Now I can compete at a high level, but I can be at home preparing and preparing for every event, and even though I’m grinding and preparing at home, with the kids.”
Since the move, Reed has played in four tournaments in September and is scheduled to make his fifth consecutive appearance at the DP World Tour’s Alfred Dunhill Links this week.
However, Reed withdrew from the race on Monday due to back pain.
According to the 32-year-old, the mattress at the Versailles Hotel during the Open de France was too soft and caused damage.
“The mattress was too soft for me,” Reed said in an interview with Bernie McGuire. Irish golfer.
“I played well in the pro-am but the pain in my back kept getting worse.
“It’s a shame as I was looking forward to going back to France after being there for the Ryder Cup.”
Reid added: “I played Dunhill Links for the first time in 2015.
He is scheduled to reunite at LIV Bangkok from October 7.
