Controversial PGA star Patrick Reed has been a mainstay on the Team USA Ryder Cup team in recent history, but that run will come to an end.
USA captain Steve Stricker revealed his picks for the Ryder Cup, and to everyone’s surprise, Reed was left off.

No matter what happens for the rest of the year…. Patrick Reed not making the Ryder Cup team will always give me that warm feeling that I can rely on during any dark times.

How does @PReedGolf golf not get selected? One of the best putters and short game on tour. Proven that he’s up for the match play challenge. Complete balk by Stricker.

After making his announcement, Steve Stricker spoke on his decision to leave Patrick Reed off of his roster.
“That was a very, very difficult call,” Stricker said. “Kind of lost sleep over that one. He’s a tremendous competitor. He brings a lot to match-play golf. His record here at the Ryder Cup is pretty darned good. It was a very difficult call. It wasn’t an easy one. It was just the uncertainty of his health and really the lack of play that led to our decision down the stretch. I apologised many times to him and just wanted to make sure that he knew that it was a very difficult decision.”
Patrick Reed is one of the most unpopular players on the Tour, but it’s not clear if that was part of Steve Stricker’s surprising choice to leave him off the team.
