World News – GB – Golf: Course in Dubai firmly in the sights of Patrick Reed


LONDON (REUTERS) – Dubai race leader Patrick Reed says the chance to finish the year as European number one motivated him to make a late entry into the championship BMW PGA from Thursday (October 8)

World number nine Reed, the highest ranked player at Wentworth, leads the season standings ahead of fellow American Collin Morikawa and he gave some thought before deciding to travel to Wentworth, England amid the pandemic Covid-19

« It was definitely motivated by winning the Race to Dubai, » Reed told reporters. « When you’re in the lead, it’s always nice to be able to come in front and try to stay on top » It was a late entry It was mainly my team and I was trying to understand with everything that is going on in the world making sure that we do not put people in danger when we come but at the same time when I get home, do not put my family in danger

« It was a tough decision We always supported the European Tour, we always liked to come and play on the Tour, and being a life member of the Tour was something I had to come and play »

Reed, who makes his first appearance since finishing 13th at the US Open last month, said it was a treat to be on the European Tour

“I expect to play good golf and play well,” said the 2018 Masters champion “Just the way everything is handled, the way the fans normally are, and the way the guys are here, it’s really great to come and play I really appreciate it «
