Reed aims for winning debut #OEM

May 13: PGA TOUR winner Patrick Reed of the United States will be aiming to extend his winning record when he makes his first competitive appearance in continental Europe at this year’s Omega European Masters.

The €2.7 million Omega European Masters, which will be held at the Crans-sur Sierre Golf Club from Juky 23-26, is sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour and is the only co-sanctioned event that is held on European soil since 2009.

The 24 year old Texan became the youngest winner of a World Golf Championship when he claimed the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March 2014 and was rated as one of America’s star players in his maiden appaearance at The Ryder Cup last year.

Reed, who secured his fourth US PGA Tour at the 2015 season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, joins a stellar line-up in Crans that includes Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, Spaniard Sergio Garcia, Englishman Lee Westwood as well as  Korean-American David Lipsky who became the first player from the Asian Tour to win the Swiss showpiece when he defeated England’s Graeme Storm at the first play-off hole last year.
