Patrick Reed 'was building sandcastles' at Bahamas event, says Koepka

Brooks Koepka has waded firmly into the Patrick Reed rules controversy, insisting his Ryder Cup teammate was ‘building sand castles’ during an infamous episode in the Bahamas in December

Brooks Koepka has waded firmly into the Patrick Reed rules controversy, insisting his Ryder Cup teammate was “building sandcastles” during an infamous episode in the Bahamas in December. Reed was penalised two strokes by the PGA Tour after clipping sand in a waste area during practice swings in the third round of the Hero World Challenge. Reed has remained adamant he did nothing wrong intentionally. Yet the situation pursued the 2018 Masters winner to the following week’s Presidents Cup, where Reed was often heckled by spectators. Reed’s caddie and brother-in-law was forced to sit out the final round of the US victory after snapping back at one fan at Royal Melbourne. Now Koepka, in an interview with the PGA Tour’s SiriusXM channel, has offered a forthright opinion of his own. “I don’t know what he was doing, building sandcastles in the sand,” said the four-times major winner. “But you know where your club is. I took three months off and I can promise you I know if I touch sand. If you look at the video, obviously he grazes the sand twice and then he still chops down on it.” Koepka is not in the field for this week’s World Golf Championship in Mexico City but given that Reed is, any response will be fascinating. In the Bahamas Reed answered “of course” when asked whether or not he believes he receives a raw deal in respect of reputation. “After seeing the incident on camera and seeing sand move, obviously it’s a penalty,” he said. “So at that point I had to accept it and move on.” Koepka added he had witnessed rule breaches by fellow competitors in the past and had not been of a mind to raise the issue, an approach that would change should likewise happen again. “I haven’t opened my mouth,” said the 29-year-old. “But now if I saw it, just because of where I’m at in the game, the stature that I have, I would definitely say something.” In what may well have implications for Tiger Woods as he looks to earn a spot on the USA Olympic team, Koepka cited an element of indifference towards participation in the event. Koepka would be viewed as a shoo-in to appear at Tokyo this summer but suggested his priorities are elsewhere. “I don’t know yet what I’m going to do,” he said. “I think it would be cool to be an Olympian but at the same time it’s not something I’ve grown up wanting to be.” Topics Read more: The Guardian
