Reed reflects on European Tour

Patrick Reed took some time to reflect on his first season as a member of the European Tour. 

The American recorded a sensational finish to his year in Europe, notching up six top ten finishes in a row that included two runner-ups. 

Apart from enjoying the results, Reed revealed that he thoroughly enjoyed the company. 

"The guys over here on the European Tour are awesome," the world number ten told europeantour.com.

"It's very different from the US because there everyone has their families. Over here the guys are always hanging out together and having a good time, going for dinner together. There’s a real sense of camaraderie and a great vibe.

"In China I hung out with a few of the South African guys and they taught me how to play snooker. It was awesome.

"You can see how the European guys get such good camaraderie going."

Not only did the Texan enjoy the players, he also had a great time visiting countries he had never been before. Reed added that the Tour made him want to go back to some places without his clubs.

"We loved Switzerland, it was so unbelievably beautiful there," said the 25-year-old.

"We've had so many great experiences this year. I absolutely loved visiting so many new countries and discovering new places for the first time.

"I just wish I could stay in some of these places longer than just a week; with golf and everything you don't really get much of a chance to fully see and appreciate and enjoy these places as much as if you were there on holiday."
