Though if we're being truthful, perhaps we should have seen this coming. No announcement was made, but Reed quietly WD'd from the RBC Canadian Open on Tuesday morning. 

Fast-forward to Saturday afternoon and a grinning Reed, 31, hopped on the live broadcast during the final day of the inaugral $25million LIV Golf Series event at Centurion Club. 

"The fans love him," announcer Jerry Foltz said. "I'm super excited," Reed told the team. 

Reed was joined by Americans Pat Perez and Bryson DeChambeau this week who have also decided to shun the PGA Tour. 

"You're not just playing for yourself -- you're playing for your team over there and that camaraderie," said Reed. 

"I'm excited about seeing more golf. You're not just seeing coverage from featured groups -- you're seeing it from everywhere."

Reed has won almost $37million in a decade on the PGA Tour and currently occupies the World No. 36 ranking. 

Since he won the 2018 Masters, it's been a bit of a grind. He's chopped and changed equipment and also battled a bout of double pneumonia late last year. 

He feared for his life but returned to the game just before the Ryder Cup selections. Reed was not picked and his social media activity suggested he was not happy. 

When Reed was announced, there were some pretty amusing reactions on social media. 

Here are some of the best:
