Patrick Reed has been around and someone pretty familiar in the golf scene. He is now slated to play at International Series Singapore on the Asian Tour and seemed pretty upbeat about the upcoming tournament.

Reed is set to compete in the $15 million tournament that will be played at the Tampines Course at Tanah Merah Country Club.

“I have heard a lot of amazing things about the area and the golf course. To be able to come and experience it myself is amazing and watching the [National Day] fireworks last night was great,” Reed said in an official release from the Asian Tour.

The 32-year-old golfer played in the Saudi International earlier this 2022. The upcoming golf tournament will only be the second for Reed on the Asian tour and it appears it will not be his last.

“There is a lot of things that go into it, and when the people treat you like family as they have here, it makes the experience that much better,” he said.

“With that being said, I will try and pull as many players over to start playing some more events because that is the only way you can grow the game by getting outside of your bubble and start playing different places. I have always loved travelling and playing, so to be able to come and play events like this is a real treat,” he added.

Reed won the Master in 2018 and is a nine-time winner of the PGA Tour. His last triumph was when he won last year’s Farmers Insurance Open.

Aside from this, the 32-year-old golfer has also claimed two WGC events during his stellar 11-year professional career, at the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship and WGC-Mexico Championship in 2020.

Nicknamed “Captain America” for his great performances in the Match Play event, Reed has also competed in three Ryder Cups.
