In 2018, Patrick Reed won his first major championship, winning the Masters at Augusta, beating a host of top players in one of the most impressive top 10's we've seen in a major for a long time.
Reed beat Rickie Fowler by one shot, who was also searching for his maiden major, followed by Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm and then Rory McIlroy.
Since his Masters win, Reed had gone on a bit of a victory drought, but last month the American won the Northern Trust in the first FedEx Cup Playoff, which gave him a serious boost up the FedEx Cup standings.
He's a controversial player to say the least (he's even blocked us on Twitter) but the 29-year-old is an extremely focused golfer and has made clear his intentions to be an international player, with a special desire to become the first American to win the Race to Dubai.
"Coming over and getting on this stretch after how I finished on the PGA Tour, I feel confident and solid," he said. "Hopefully I can continue that form and play some good golf to get myself in the right frame of mind and a good position on the Race to Dubai.
"It’s always awesome. It’s always been a dream of mine to be a world player and go to different countries and to experience life outside of what you’re comfortable in.”
Reed is currently playing in the Porsche European Open in Germany, before heading over to the Netherlands for the 100th KLM Open and then playing Wentworth for the very first time in the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship.
