Patrick Reed has revealed how he intends to make Tiger Woods' United States Presidents Cup side a whole lot better after receiving one of four of Woods' picks for the biennial clash against the Internationals this December.
Reed may have been involved in five team apperances for the United States at the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup before, but this marks the first time he has received a captain's pick to make the side.
But despite a poor early start to the season, Reed believes Woods made the correct decision to give him a pick alongside Tony Finau, Gary Woodland and Woods himself following his recent performances on Tour.
"It just makes me want to go out there and justify my place even more. I want everyone to think Tiger made the right decision when he picked me. But my bigger aim is to help make the whole team better, whether that is on or off the course.
"I must admit I dug myself a hole earlier this year. That's why I didn't qualify. I've been forced to play more of the golf I know how to play to get a pick.
"Winning the first event in the FedEx Playoffs was huge. I played well at Wentworth in the BMW PGA, then I was top 10 in China. I feel like I've played some solid golf."
Reed caused huge controversy in the United States team at the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National when sounding out captain Jim Furyk and a number of his team-mates including lashing out at Jordan Spieth.
