Patrick Reed and waste areas in the Bahamas have a little bit of history to say the least.
Reed's exploits at the 2019 Hero World Challenge nearly broke the golf Internet when he was accused of improving his lie.
It led to intense scrutiny over the behavior of Reed, now 31, in the following events on the PGA Tour and world wide.
There is no doubt you will have your opinion. Rory McIlroy was asked about it, and he cut a more sympathetic tone.
Brooks Koepka's opinion on that now infamous moment? He was cheating. Plain and simple.

Reed visited more sand areas in the fourth round of this tournament.
Twice in two holes in fact. But this time Reed just showed us his short game wizardry.

At nine, he sent his tee ball way left and had to play his recovery shot into the fairway left-handed. Then he scrambled for par.
There were more heroics at the 10th when Reed visited another waste area again and SOMEHOW managed to play it out.
Does anyone want a Vice ball? He said after apparently finding one in a bush.
Short game master Reed then chipped his next shot stone dead and made a pretty ridiculous bogey at 10.
It was one of the craziest hours you'll ever watch on the PGA Tour as:
- Collin Morikawa threw away his five shot lead with two wild double bogeys
- Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson played from the wrong tee box
- Brooks Koepka also had to play a shot from the rocks
- Tiger Woods also was pictured wearing his Sunday red
Spieth and Stenson's woes can be summed up in the video below:

There was also the small matter of the big cat wearing his classic ensemble again:
