PGA Tour: 2018 Masters Tournament

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Patrick Reed looks like a guy who spends his Sunday afternoons at the grill, arguing that charcoal makes the meat taste better.

His look is awkward — ill-fitting pants, an upside-down pin on his hat, a magenta shirt that will never catch on. His customary look is a scowl, and fellow Texan Jordan Spieth is infinitely more popular. While observers showered Spieth with roars Sunday at Augusta National, they greeted Reed with golf claps.

Reed said he noticed that playing partner Rory McIlroy got a louder ovation when they were introduced on the first tee.
