Shortly after Team USA was announced, fans reacted to Steve Stricker’s decision to leave Patrick Reed off his list.

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.
