Patrick Reed was quick to ignore criticism from Brooks Koepka and Peter Kostis as he swerved the media's questions about their comments on day one of the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Koepka told SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio this week that he thought Reed was "building sand castles in the sand" during his controversial waste bunker incident at the Hero World Challenge in December.

Former CBS analyst Kostis then went even further by claiming he had seen Reed improve his lie on the PGA Tour "up close and personal four times now."

Reed, who carded an opening 69 to lie tied eighth, was obviously quizzed by the media about both comments but the former Masters champion was quick to divert his attention elsewhere.

"I said what I have to say about what happened in the Bahamas, and at the end of the day, all I'm trying to do is go out and play good golf and trying to win a golf championship and hopefully run [leader Rory McIlroy] down," said Reed. 

As for Reed's thoughts about one day joining a new Premier Golf League, he admitted he was still contemplating the idea with his team.

"Honestly I have my team grabbing all the information about it, and I don't know enough about it yet to really say anything about it, but once we get all the information, I'll go make my mind up later on," he said.
