Patrick Reed is quickly becoming one of the best in the game under pressure, and he proved it once again with a tremendous performance and a huge win at Bethpage Black. His victory at the Barclays is the 5th of his career, and now he’s on the US Ryder Cup team, and #1 on the FedExCup standings!

P-Reed lives for these big moments and he should have a lot of fun as the leader in the playoffs with 3 tournaments to go! Here now is a look at some of the key equipment that he used to close out the win:
XR 16 Pro Fairway Wood (18*)
Callaway X-Forged ’13 (4-iron)
Callaway MB1 Irons (5-PW)
Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind Wedges (52*, 56*)
Patrick first put in the Big Bertha Alpha 816 Double Black Diamond Driver last year and he particularly likes the low spin characteristics. He also likes how he can control the ball off the tee, and has commented to Callaway Tour Reps how his fairway accuracy has improved with the driver in the bag.
Patrick Reed is your 2016 Barclays champion. Getting an automatic spot on the Ryder Cup team is a nice bonus, too.

Patrick has also had a Chrome Soft Golf Ball in the bag during this year. He chose this ball because he picked up 10-12 yards with it off the tee, according to Callaway Tour Reps. And it felt softer and reacted with more spin around the greens for him. Phil Mickelson, Lydia Ko, Wesley Bryan, Danny Lee, Emiliano Grillo, and Marc Leishman area also among the long list of players who are using a Chrome Soft.
Patrick’s White Hot RX #2 Putter is 34″ long with 4* of loft, and our Odyssey Reps added a top line sight line for him.
With this victory, and an impressive showing by Emiliano Grillo, Team Callaway is in great position to produce a FedExCup champ.

Earlier in the day, Callaway staffer Thomas Pieters closed out his 3rd career European Tour win in Denmark with an amazing finish that saw him birdie the last 3 holes to close out the win. Here’s what was in his bag:
This is a big step for him in making the European Ryder Cup team, and he’s now one of the top rising stars in the game. And in other news for Team Callaway on Sunday, Ryo Ishikawa clinched his 14th career win on the Japanese Tour, and Thomas Detry closed out his first career professional win in a BIG way on the European Challenge Tour, finishing at a record 29-under-par for the tournament.
