Masters Champion Patrick Reed Has Heated Altercation With Photographers

Patrick Reed in confrontation with cameramen.

On Thursday afternoon, Patrick Reed was involved in a heated altercation with cameramen working the Porsche European Open. Reed is known for being a hot head on and off the course, and this certainaly won't change that narrative.

During the opening round of the tournament, Reed was setting up for his third shot on the par-4 No. 10. He became distracted by the camera crew and made it known he was less-than-pleased.

In the video, via Dylan Dethier of Golf Magazine, Reed's caddy can be heard saying "you're rattling change in your pocket, that's what I'm pointing at you for."

Reed eventually had enough and told the crew to move.

Professional golfers are adept at working around a crowd, but obviously Reed had more than enough in this situation.

Reed eventually made par on the hole, but followed it up with a bogey on No. 11. He finished the day strong with back-to-back birdies on No. 17 and No. 18.

Reed sits at 2-under on the day, four shots behind tournament leader Bryson DeChambeau.
