Note to self: Don’t keep change in your pocket on the golf course, especially around 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed.

The Golf Channel posted the video on its Instagram account with a caption that reads: “Warning to all camera crews: Do NOT jingle your change around Patrick Reed!”


Warning to all camera crews: Do NOT jingle your change around Patrick Reed!

Reed is across the pond this week competing in the European Tour’s Porsche European Open in Germany, and on the first day of the tournament, Reed’s patience was tested when a cameraman apparently had change rattling in his pocket.

Before audio cut to Reed and his caddie Kessler Karain, Karain was seen shaking his hand and speaking aggressively to the camera crew.

“You’re rattling change in your pocket,” Karain was heard saying when the microphone picked up audio from the course. “That’s what I’m pointing at you for.”

Reed then chimed in saying, “Well, thank you. Stop.” 

But Reed didn’t stop there.

Before approaching the ball again, Reed added, “You know what, no, I need y’all to go over on that side of the green. Go.

“He lost privileges by going like that with change. Keep going. I’m not hitting until y’all get the heck outta here. Like, completely outta here. Ridiculous.”

Reed eventually carded par on the 10th hole and finished with a 2-under 70 — four strokes behind the leader, American Bryson DeChambeau.
