Patrick Reed essentially threw captain Jim Furyk under the bus by telling The New York Times on Sunday that he was “blindsided” by not playing with Jordan Spieth after the pair’s past success in international competitions.

Looks like he may have not been exactly telling the truth according to this anonymous source.
Reed went 0-2 with Tiger Woods before winning his singles match over Tyrrell Hatton on Sunday. Reid and Woods sat Friday and Saturday afternoons.
“For somebody as successful in the Ryder Cup as I am, I don’t think it’s smart to sit me twice,” Reed had told the Times.
Looks like Reed was the one guy not on board with Furyk.
Losing is tough, but being a sore loser makes the loss even worse. Reed needs a timeout.
