Reed keeping busy schedule after Ryder Cup


ATLANTA – While most top players are anxiously anticipating an off-season following next week’s Ryder Cup, Patrick Reed seems to just be getting started.

Reed, who is making his 28th start this season on the PGA Tour at the Tour Championship, plans to take two weeks off after the Ryder Cup before heading to Asia to play the CIMB Classic and WGC-HSBC Champions.

“I'll be all over the place again. I love to play. And it's one of these things that I've always wanted to be a world golfer,” he said on Tuesday at East Lake.

After that Reed said he will finish the season on the European Tour, where he also has membership. Under that circuit’s new membership criteria, Reed must play five events on the European Tour schedule not counting the World Golf Championships and majors.

Currently he has just two starts in Europe, the Scottish Open and Olympics, and needs to play all three of the Race to Dubai post-season events in November to meet the minimum.

“It's just kind of one of those things where I don't expect to have an off-season. I haven't had an off-season ever since I've been on the PGA Tour,” he said. “I'm really excited about it and can't wait to travel.”
