Tiger Woods showed signs of improvement Friday, following his dismal performance Thursday at Isleworth Country Club. In the second round of the Hero World Challenge, Woods posted a two-under 70, despite a double-bogey on the last hole — which included a(nother) chunked chip.

Woods carded a three-over total at the halfway mark of the tournament that benefits his foundation. Although he trimmed seven strokes from his first round, he remains in last place in the 18-man field.

It’s been a busy fall for Patrick Reed — and it just got a little more so. Reed will replace Jim Furyk, who withdrew due to a back injury, at next week’s Hero World Challenge at Isleworth Country Club in Orlando, Florida.

Reed received the 18th and final spot in the field because he was the next highest ranked player in the OWGR as of September 14th who was not already qualified for the event.

Patrick Reed’s “outspokenness” — or rather his choice of words — got him into trouble during the first round of the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. After missing a six-footer on the first hole (his 10th of the day), he muttered to himself, “Don’t f***ing three-putt you f***ing f*ggot.”

Following the second round at Sheshan International Golf Club, the 24-year-old American spoke with reporters and apologized for his outburst, which was picked up by the TV camera and microphone for the world to hear.

Hear that, everyone?

Shhhhhhh

Surprise! — a professional golfer made a homophobic comment!

Perhaps Patrick Reed should heed some of his own advice and “shhhhhh” himself. The outspoken American has gotten himself into hot water at the HSBC Champions in China.

During the first round at Sheshan International Golf Club, Reed missed a six-footer on no. 1 (his 10th of the day), and reprimanded himself, saying, “Don’t f***ing three-putt you f***ing f*ggot.” His tantrum was caught on camera and it’s certainly created backlash for Reed. Here’s the GIF, where you can clearly hear the gay slur:

Love him or hate him, Patrick Reed is certainly entertaining to watch, especially in the match play format. Reed missed a two-foot putt on the 16th in Saturday afternoon foursomes, which resulted in a spectator taunting him on the first tee during his Sunday singles match against Henrik Stenson.

Reed, who isn’t known for his popularity on the PGA Tour (though that may have changed a little with this week), wasn’t bothered by it and even had a chuckle himself.

The American Ryder Cup team find themselves in a familiar position heading into Sunday’s singles matches: Losing. After a 3.5-0.5 thrashing in Saturday afternoon foursomes, the Europeans have taken a(nother) commanding lead 10-6 headed into the final day of the biennial matches.

Miracles do happen as we saw only two years ago at Medinah, but the chances of it happening for the Americans on foreign soil are slim to none. To put it bluntly, I’m not seeing “Glory at Gleneagles” — it’s been more like “Goof at Gleneagles,” with several major questionable decisions made by American Captain Tom Watson. (Just a few to start with: Why did he sit the rookies in Friday Foursomes? Why did he play Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley twice on Friday? Why didn’t he play them at all on Saturday? Why didn’t he rest Jimmy Walker?)

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed walked away from a hard-fought match against Justin Rose, Europe’s superstar this year, and Martin Kaymer to secure Team USA’s only half point in Saturday afternoon foursomes.

Only problem is the American rookie duo probably should have won the match, but bad breaks and sloppy putting led to a halve and killed any momentum the U.S. could’ve taken with them into the team room after a(nother) 3-1 drubbing in the alternate shot format. Now, the Americans find themselves trailing 10-6 and closing in on its eighth Ryder Cup loss in the last 10 attempts.

After a solid Friday morning fourball session for Team USA, the Europeans dominated the afternoon foursomes, winning 3.5 of the total possible 4 points from the second session.

Unfortunately, I was correct in my prediction that the Americans would get throttled (I guessed 3-1), but it was obviously even worse than I anticipated. (Not that anyone cares, but the good news is I correctly predicted the score 2.5-1.5 after the first session, and I have a bet slip to prove it!)
