Kevin Kisner has revealed in an incredible interview with Golf Digest how a number of golfers he knows out on Tour “would not piss on Patrick Reed if he was on fire.”
Reed has caused a number of controversial moments off the course during his career, none bigger than this September when verbally criticising United States Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk and team-mate Jordan Spieth for a number of failings during their heavy defeat to Europe 17.5-10.5 at Le Golf National.
But in a recent interview with Golf Digest, PGA Tour pro Kisner - who played college golf at Georgia where Reed started out his collegiate career - was quick to get to the bottom as to what everyone really thinks of the current Masters champion.

"They all hate him—any guys that were on the team with him [at Georgia] hate him and that’s the same way at Augusta,” Kisner, who was team-mates with Reed on the victorious 2016 US Presidents Cup team.
“I don’t know that they’d piss on him if he was on fire, to tell you the truth.”
PGA Tour professionals Brian Harman, Harris English and Russell Henley, team-mates of Reed in college, have since refused to comment on Kisner's statement.
Rory McIlroy has recently said how Reed is more misunderstood than anything.

Other contentious moments during Reed's career involved claiming he was a 'top five player' straight after becoming the youngest player to win a World Golf Championship title in 2014.
There is also a dark cloud over his relationship with his family, something the 28-year-old repeatedly refused to comment about - particularly when slipping on the green jacket for his first ever major title in April.
