Patrick Reed Joins WME | IMG Team
Patrick Reed’s 2015 just got better.
Just four days after winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Reed signed a deal with WME | IMG for his marketing and management representation.
Reed is the fourth player of the last 20 years – the other three being Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia – to win four PGA events before turning 25. The 24-year-old Reed also was the lone shining star in the US’ most-recent Ryder Cup competition, going 3-0-1.
The win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions moved Reed up to No. 14 in the world. The only player who is ranked higher and also younger than Reed is fellow American Jordan Spieth, who is currently No. 9 and 21 years old.
IMG’s history with golfers is long and rich, starting with the magnificent trio of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Arnold Palmer, the company’s first clients.
