If there’s a world record for public appearances wearing the Masters green jacket, Patrick Reed is surely on his way to breaking it.
Reed spent last week on a whirlwind media tour following his win at Augusta National Golf Club wearing the Masters’ signature prize -- the green jacket, which has been a Masters tradition for more than six decades. The coveted jackets are made from Georgia cloth by Hamilton Tailoring Co. of Cincinnati.
The blazer is available only to Masters winners and Augusta National members. Only current winners are allowed to wear the jacket outside the club during the year of their reign.
Reed has been spotted wearing the green blazer during media stops in New York, including the New York Stock Exchange and a N.Y. Knicks basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Reed also was spotted wearing green in a Chick-fil-A drive thru. He wore the jacket publicly in his home state Texas to a Houston Astros game Saturday and a Houston Rockets playoff game Sunday.
