WATCH: Patrick Reed lands an Eagle to kick things off at the Open Championship

Pat made two quick pars on holes 1 and 2 before this beauty at number three. American’s are dominating the leaderboard as the sun shines on Preswick, no surprise if you remember that 6 of the previous winners at Troon were from the US.

Patrick Reed played very well at last week’s Scottish Open. It’s hard to believe he was the villain on Tour not too long ago, his decision to play at the Olympics has completely changed that perception.

“I would love to play for my country, and I have that opportunity and I heard that the deadline is tomorrow. And mathematically, I think I’m a lock, I’m not 100 percent sure,”
he said. “But I’d love to play and hopefully we can go out and wear those stars and stripes.”
 

Bubba Watson is cashing in on the good weather. What a charge!
