AVONDALE, La. – Justine Reed has walked every hole of her husband’s pro career. Practice round. Pro-am round. Tournament round. All of ’em.
Her dedication is being put to the test now that she’s 35 weeks pregnant. She’s due with the couple’s first child, a girl, on May 26.
“It’s getting a little harder for me to look over there and see her struggling a little bit,” Patrick Reed said Wednesday at the Zurich Classic. “With how competitive she is, there’s no way to keep her off the golf course.”
Team Reed’s plan is to play every event until the baby comes. Ideally, that would be after The Players, when the Tour swings back through Texas. Justine has said she’ll be back on her husband’s bag as soon as possible.
The couple has already decided to name the little girl Windsor Wells, after Justine’s grandmother.
“Her first event is going to be the U.S. Open,” Reed said, “and Justine is going to be there, as well. It’s going to be my first U.S. Open as well as the family’s first U.S. Open, so it’s going to be fun.”
