The confusion surrounding Patrick Reed's latest clothing deal took another turn at The Open at Royal St George's as the former Masters champion was spotted wearing G/FORE polo shirts all week.
Earlier this season ahead of The Masters in April, Reed confirmed he was joining forces with rising British premium apparel company Castore Sportswear, the same clothing brand as worn by tennis ace Andy Murray.

However, despite becoming a brand ambassador of Castore and instantly wearing their shirts during tournaments on the PGA Tour, the former Masters champion has switched back to sporting G/FORE polos.
On day one of The Open, Reed was wearing G/FORE's 'Exploded Camo Polo' that retails for $120, and it certainly got people talking on social media as the American strode the fairways alongside Rory McIlroy and Cam Smith on Thursday.
Reed then continued to wear G/FORE polo shirts for the remainder of the week at Royal St George's.
Since ending his long-term contract with Nike Golf at the start of the season, Reed chose to personally buy G/FORE apparel out of choice, with no signed contract or anything. He apparently just loved the products the brand was producing and so chose to wear them.
After briefly switching into Castore shirts at The Masters three months ago, Reed was spotted wearing G/FORE again at the US Open last month, and now the same thing has happened at The Open Championship, leaving golf fans confused as to what's happened with his Castore deal.
We reached out to Castore for comment, but nobody has responded.
A saw the blue/black top he had on today at the first tee, thought that looked nice then he turned round and no Castore, strange one, did check and he wore his old sponsors stuff in the US last month!— Dougie (@dougiethebear) July 15, 2021
We fired the guy who designed this uncomplicated shirt. We thought we had destroyed all copies, but apparently Patrick Reed saved one. https://t.co/khhnEfR67H— Dan Flashes® (@DanFlashes) July 15, 2021
Can't tell if Patrick Reed's stylist was going for blue and black camo or cow print.— Justin H. Williams (@JustinHWill) July 15, 2021
Either way, I can't imagine anyone in the world right now is thinking, "Man, I really want that shirt." pic.twitter.com/ygaI0KftHk
