Watch: Reed hits epic Palmer-esque helicopter shot at Valspar Championship


Patrick Reed channeled his inner Arnold Palmer when playing a helicopter fairway wood shot on the par-five 14th at the Valspar Championship.

The 27-year-old played the best shot of the day at Innisbrook when hitting the cut from the fairway, landing it on the green for a shot at eagle - (which he didn’t make).

Reed, who usually plays a draw, had a Palmer-esque signature helicopter finish to the stroke which had the commentator’s purring.

Captain America needed a par to make the play-off with eventual winner Paul Casey, and was on the green in two before opting to putt from distance...which didn’t work out for him.
