Patrick Reed joked he would have dragged his caddie Kessler Karain up the 18th hole if he wasn't his brother-in-law given what he told him in the trees at The Masters

Reed, 33, bogeyed the par-4 18th for a 1-over 73 to leave himself on that number for the tournament heading into the final round. 

After talking through his round with a pool of reporters on Saturday night, LIV Golf star Reed disclosed details of words he would rather have not heard from his caddie while he was rustling around in the leaves on the 18th. 

Kessler pointed out to Reed that his driving accuracy had cost them dearly this week.

That did not sit too well with the 2018 Masters champion as he went about chipping his ball from the trees down the right side of 18.

When asked to reveal the one area of his game that had let him down so far this week, Reed said: 

"One thing, walking up that 18th hole and seeing my ball in that big-leafed tree on the right again where I could barely advance the golf ball, and my caddie staring at me in the face and saying, your driving has cost us a lot this week. I think I'd probably say driving.

"You know, he says that, and yesterday it was blowing 50 and I only missed four fairways and that horrendous finish I had to start the morning. I ended up par-3 making a bogey, hit the middle of the fairway on 17, made bogey, and hit it in the tree on 18 and made double.

"So it's just kind of one of those things that I don't really know if it's as much the driving, it's just make sure I don't hit it into that one tree on 18. That tree is now -- I'm in that tree twice, so I've made a double and a bogey there because of that stupid tree.

"Yesterday afternoon I actually hit right of the tree about four yards right of the tree, and I was able to snap hook it around and chipped it up there close and made a par.

"Yeah, I don't know. Maybe I need to aim right at that tree and expect to miss it because trying to go left of it has not worked. Yeah, biggest thing is driving the golf ball, I guess."

The reporter then followed up by saying 'good thing your caddie is a family member, right?'

Reed replied: 

"Yeah, exactly. I'd probably be dragging him up that last hole, I swear. 

"Just what you want to hear as you're looking at the ball in the tree, and he goes, you need to drive it better. 

"Thanks, Kessler. I appreciate it. Great words of wisdom. Drive it better."

Despite not being best pleased with his caddie's comment, Reed did take aim at his own driving with an expletive on the 17th hole.
