He's a petulant child who complains about every poor shot and berates his caddy mercilessly. If his name wasn't Bubba, he would be hated all over. Him hitting an iron off the tee at the long drive "game" during the PGA was a perfect example of the douche that is Bubba.
US is giving up holes and putts all over the place. This is not fun to watch.
Zomp said:Mart, what are the sky commentators saying about Reed? Seems like the journalists I follow on Twitter can't stand him yet Poulter is the same way.
Also, and I know from following the BPL that journalists love to make stories out of nothing, but are people really offended that Fowler shaved USA in his head? Really?
They love him. They love his passion. They don't mind that he bated the crowd a little. They just love that he's got stones, that he's into it. That for the most part he walked it like he talked it. I love him.
Bated the crowd like Lowe bated Miguel Tejada in 2003?
Not quite. He was trying to shoosh the crowd..it's fairly standard at the footie but you don't see it much if at all at the golf, but I like all that stuff.
It was a joke, goddammit. I saw the shoosh and I loved it. Reed has gone from a guy I absolutely root against to a guy I root for. If only a few other US golfers could step it up like he did.
Dude, i thought you were coming from left field so i had to make sure Lowe didn't boff Miggies missus...after that i was just trying to make par.
Lowe made a masterbate gesture to the A's in 2003. Tejada reacted like he did boff his wife. You wrote, "Reed bated the crowd." Instead of baited. Hence, my pun.
That's what the cameras just caught Watson saying. If it was fourball and singles it would have been a match.RedOctober3829 said:If USA just simply showed up in the alternate shot format, this would have gone down to the wire. Getting 1 point out of 8 is inexcusable. You can say what you want about Spieth and Mahan today, but the competition was lost on Friday and Saturday afternoons.

A few changes could have helped. Sitting Reed and Spieth on Friday. No Mickelson yesterday, but Furyk played. And no Horschel, while Webb sucked.
