Patrick Reed Quotes.
I’ve worked so hard, I’ve won a lot in my junior career, did great things in my amateur career, was 6-0 in match play in NCAAs, won NCAAs two years in a row, got third individually one year, and now I have three wins out here on the PGA Tour.
In the past, I put too much pressure on myself. I went out there and I tried so hard to get the ball in the hole, I tried so hard to hit the perfect shots.
You just have your teammates and yourself out there to pick you up, so just kind of shows you how strong you really can be.

For somebody as successful in the Ryder Cup as I am, I don’t think it’s smart to sit me twice.

There are the guys that wear the white hats and they’re painting the picture of someone to wear the black hat and they chose me – even though they don’t really know me.
Honestly, I don’t ever regret anything I say.
I believe in myself, especially with how hard I’ve worked. I’m one of the top five players in the world. I feel like I’ve proven myself.
If I could have my wife and kids on the road with me every week, I would.
You know that once you’re successful, there’s going to be good things and bad things that people say and, honestly, to me it doesn’t really matter.
It’s just one of those things, I believe in myself and – especially with how hard I’ve worked – I’m one of the top five players in the world.
Just be you. Play golf. If you get riled up, show it. If you aren’t happy about something, it’s all right. Just play golf.
If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else is going to.
Honestly, people can write anything they want about me and I could care less, but once you start writing stuff about my family, my wife and my daughter and son or my mother-in-law, then you’re drawing a line.
When it comes right down to it, I don’t care if I like the person I’m paired with or if the person likes me as long as it works and it sets up the team for success.
