Tiger's help boosts Reed

More Golf News

Patrick Reed says his career will benefit no end from working with Tiger Woods at the Ryder Cup.

Former world No.1 Woods, who has been out of action for over a year due to injury, is one of the United States' five vice-captains at Hazeltine.

The 14-time major winner has been overseeing a 'pod' that includes Reed and the 26-year-old has been soaking up his advice.

Reed said: "It's awesome being a part of Tiger's pod. You see the credentials he has, all the major wins, the 105 worldwide wins, ultimately one of the best golfers ever to live on the planet.

"If you ask him any question or if you need anything, he is there. He's all-in. He'll answer any question, whether it's about golf, on the golf course, off the golf course, anything.

"He's there to genuinely help you and on not just Ryder Cup but other things. It's awesome to see that and be a part of.

"We played nine holes on the first day and I decided I wanted to go see the back nine, so I just walked the back nine backwards. He walked it with me, helping me figure out the golf course.

"You don't get that very often and to have somebody do that for you, especially a guy like Tiger Woods, meant a lot to me."
