Patrick Reed is not eligible to participate in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. However, this will not stop him from participating in other events this season.
The Asian Tour announced that Patrick Reed would participate in the International Series events in Singapore and South Korea. The first event will be held at the Tampines Course, while the second one will be held at the Skyhill Country Club.
The two tournaments will have a total purse of $1.5 million. The winner of each event will receive a cash prize of $270,000. These are considered elevated events of the Asian Tour and are sponsored by the company known as LIV Golf Investments.
On Sunday, Reed finished in fifth place at the New Jersey event of the LIV Golf. He received a cash prize of $975,000 and was also on the winning team.
Whether the company requires Patrick Reed to participate in the International Series tournaments is unclear. Graeme McDowell was able to participate in a London Series event before he played in the first event of the tournament.
Since he has slipped down in the world ranking, Reed might be doing this to earn points for the company. According to Reed, the main reason he decided to leave the professional tour was the quality of life.
He also stated that he felt that his decision to leave the professional tour was the best decision he could make. Patrick Reed explained that it has worn on him as an athlete and as a father. He added that he now has the opportunity to pursue his goals and excel in various areas of life.
Reed added that he now has the opportunity to compete at the highest level. He also said that he can now spend more time with his family. He noted that even though he will be preparing for every tournament, he will still be able to spend time with his kids. He will work on his tennis and pool playing during his free time. After school, he will be able to spend time with his kids.
The next event of the company will be held in September. It will be held outside of Boston and will be one week after the conclusion of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
