The omission of Patrick Reed from the 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup team was the big talking point on Wednesday as Steve Stricker made his six picks for the biennial contest that gets underway later this month.
The Texan has an imposing 7-3-2 career record at the Ryder Cup but will be watching the event this year from home after Captain Stricker decided against selecting Reed.
The 54-year-old told media on Wednesday that Reed took the news of his exclusion like a “true champion,” but if the Texan’s activity on Twitter is anything to go by, it’s clear that the 2018 Masters winner is not impressed by the snub.
Following the announcement, Reed liked multiple posts from users on the social media platform who were heavily critical of Stricker’s decision, which suggests that the 31-year-old isn’t one bit pleased with the captain.
Here’s a look at some of the posts Reed liked on Wednesday on Twitter
Stricker pinpointed the “uncertainty of his health,” as one of the primary reasons for Reed’s exclusion, following the Texan’s recent recovery from bilateral pneumonia which left him battling for his life.
The Wisconsin native instead used his six selections on Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth.
