Quote of the day

Patrick Reed took a double-bogey seven on the par-5 13th in the second round on Friday. He hit his ball into the azaleas to the left of the fairway and needed a provisional. One day later, birdied the hole.

Q. You kind of conquered 13 a little bit.

Reed: About time. My wife, she always says how pretty the azaleas are. Well, I don’t really find them that pretty this year because I keep on being in them on that hole. Yesterday I started the hole with a pure white shirt and afterwards I had purple and pink and every other color on it. Looked like I had a tie-dyed shirt on because I was having to dig trying to find my golf ball.
