WGC – Workday Championship – 2 PGA Players To Watch
Patrick Reed – is the defending champion but given the difficult venue and a competitive filed it is going to very difficult for him to repeat. Patrick Reed gets a bad rap and was great to see a good story about him giving back.
Charles Penny II decided to reach out to Grindworks, the Japanese company that makes the irons Patrick Reed plays, to see if it offered any kind of a discount for aspiring pros like himself.
As it turns out Penny is part of the African American Tour Quest the player development program of The Pinkney Foundation. He is doing a ton of good work! His request to Grindworks was passed over to Patrick Reed.
“I read his email about him as a person, as well as what his dreams and ambitions are in golf and how hard he’s working on it and his goals,” Reed says. “And when I sat back and actually read all the stuff that he was saying and all the things that he was trying to get to and his goals and ambitions, I was like, man, this is somebody I would love to try to help out.”
So, Reed told the folks he works with at Grindworks that he would pay for Penny’s clubs.
Collin Morikawa – looks to be a frontrunner to be the next big star on the PGA tour.
He has already won three tournaments including the 2020 PGA Championship. Week in and week out he demonstrates and ability to excel under pressure.
He recently turned 24 and almost won another tournament in January and seems to be getting back in form. Towards the tail end of 2020, Morikawa showed the he is human when considering he missed the US Open cut in September. He also missed the cut at the Masters in November.
“I just thought it was going to come too easy, and I thought on the off days things were going to be slightly better than what they actually were. That doesn’t mean that I was getting lazy practicing or getting lazy prepping for the event, but I think just thinking through shots the way I was thinking through them, it wasn’t as clear.”
