Patrick Reed wins WGC-Mexico, then has a pop at Sky Sports Golf

Patrick Reed was fuming with Sky Sports Golf's on-course commentator Wayne Riley after his victory interview at the WGC-Mexico Championship. 

Reed was afforded the luxury of making bogey on the final hole to pip Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke for his second career WGC title.

The former Masters champion was criticised at the start of the week for having built "sand castles in the sand" by Brooks Koepka - when referring to Reed's controversial two-stroke penalty at the Hero World Challenge in December.

Reed was also called out by former CBS commentator Peter Kostis who alleges to have seen the American improve his lie "up close and personal four times."

Moments after tapping home for his eighth career PGA Tour title, Reed walked off the green to speak to Sky Sports Golf's Riley, a former two-time European Tour winner.

Reed was asked by Riley about his "resilience" to go on and win the tournament despite having heard what the likes of Koepka and Kostis had to say about him on the eve of the tournament. 

There was nothing malicious - from what we saw - about what Riley had to say to Reed. For us, it was a very professional interview, asking all the right questions. 

Well, not according to Reed, who clearly did not realise the cameras were still on him when he finished his interview.

Check out the video footage below of Reed going over to Riley after his interview and saying "way to ask that one."



Social media had plenty to say about Reed's comment, which you can read by scrolling through the Twitter post above.
