PHOTO: European Ryder Cuppers shush Patrick Reed


We have a candidate for Golf Photo of the Year.

This week's Volvo World Match Play Championship amounts to a mini-reunion of the Ryder Cup, with a slew of European players in the draw, as well late addition Patrick Reed, who didn't exactly make friends when he shushed the partisan crowd during a match at Gleneagles. (The U.S. loved it, but we digress.)

Well, the Europeans got their playful revenge on Tuesday night, taking a photo in which many of the team members shush Reed right back. Henrik Stenson, Graeme McDowell, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson and Stephen Gallacher all were in the photo while the Augusta State product took the ribbing with a smile.
