Presidents Cup 2019: Patrick Reed’s caddie involved in altercation with fan at Royal Melbourne

News

A difficult week in which partisan crowds have heckled Patrick Reed in the wake of his rules violation at the Hero World Challenge got even worse on Saturday at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

After Reed lost his morning four-ball match with partner Webb Simpson, dropping his record this week at the Presidents Cup to 0-3, Kessler Karain, Reed’s caddie and brother in law, got into an altercation with a fan.

Specifics of what took place are still surfacing. Barstool Sports’ ForePlay Pod posted on Twitter a statement that it says it received from Karain in which Karain said that he shoved a fan after the fan lashed out at Reed.

“As a caddy, one of your jobs is to protect your player,” Karain told the ForePlay Pod.

Reed was already sitting out Saturday afternoon’s foursomes session.
