PODCAST: The rise of Patrick Reed, the downfall of Phoenix’s 16th

It seems like the PGA Tour trying to curb the fun for players and caddies -- and, by extension, fans -- at the par-3 16th at TPC Scottsdale, host to the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Why is the PGA Tour banning certain forms of hand outs and crowd interaction? Can they take back what they created?

Patrick Reed may not be in the top five in the world, but he's now certainly in the top tier of players in the world with his fourth PGA Tour at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. We talk about his journey into golf's upper echelon and why he should be mentioned in the same breath as 20-somethings Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day.
