Who says golfers aren’t athletes?
Patrick Reed made an ace on the par-3 16th on Saturday at the Shell Houston Open, sinking his 188-yard shot with a 5-iron. Reed celebrated in the tee box with his caddie, but about halfway to the green, Reed decided to race his caddie and brother-in-law Kessler Karain over a winding wooden walking bridge to the green to get his ball from the hole.
Reed wasn’t able to overcome his brother-in-law’s head start, and he lost his watch in the process, but credit Reed for showing some athleticism.
The ace got Reed to 2 under par on the back nine at Golf Club of Houston, Reed’s first nine of Round 3. He turned in 2-under 34.
