Reed Monday-qualifies for Nelson


It was just another manic Monday for Patrick Reed.

For the fourth time in five weeks, the Augusta State product attempted to Monday qualify for a PGA Tour event. He succeeded again, earning a spot in this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The rookie shot a bogey-free, 8-under 64 at Lantana Golf Club in Lantana, Texas, to earn a spot in the field at TPC Las Colinas.

Reed's recent run began when he entered the Monday fray for a spot at the Valero Texas Open. He was offered a sponsor's exemption into the field during the qualifier, going on to finish T-35 at TPC San Antonio.

Reed managed to get through Monday qualifying the next two weeks, including driving through the night to qualify for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Reed finished T-24 in the Crescent City before again qualifying in Charlotte, where he cashed a T-32 check.

In his prior three events, Reed has earned $116,205. He would rank No. 163 on the PGA Tour money list.

If Reed can earn another $295,738, he will have made as much money as No. 150 on last year's money list and qualify for special temporary membership. The membership would afford Reed the opportunity to accept sponsor exemptions to fill out a schedule of up to 12 PGA Tour events as a non-member.
