It was an exciting day at Augusta National as the 2018 Masters drew to an end.
But one that ended on a sour note for some Dawg fans.
Former Bulldog golfer Patrick Reed entered Sunday with a three-stroke lead. Reed (-15) was challenged by Jordan Spieth (-13) and Rickie Fowler (-14) but ultimately won on a par putt at 18. However, Reed’s victory drew little applause from the crowd.
Georgia fans’ contempt towards Reed stems from his tenure at UGA, where he was said to have cheated and stolen from his teammates, resulting in a quick departure and transfer to Augusta State.
Reed’s poor behavior at Georgia is summed up below by 11Alive writer Alec McQuade:
It alleges from former teammates that they caught him trying to hit someone else’s ball on a fairway after his went into the rough during a qualifying event. His teammates confronted him about it, and he seemed confused. Then, it details how $400 cash, a watch and a Scotty Cameron putter went missing a couple of weeks later from UGA’s locker room. Reed showed up later with a wad of cash, and when his teammates asked him about it, he said he hustled a professor on the golf course.
Let’s not forget last fall when Reed donned Notre Dame gear in South Bend when Georgia took on the Irish.
As you can imagine, Georgia fans were not too thrilled about Reed’s victory on Sunday. Check out a compilation of tweets below.
