Patrick Reed finally gets respect on Nike’s golf website
Nike got a ton of exposure this weekend thanks to Patrick Reed’s winning run at Augusta National, but they didn’t exactly do a lot to capitalize on it.
Reed, who signed an apparel deal with the company that was announced in January, wasn’t listed on Nike’s golf site as of Saturday, when he was leading the Masters through 54 holes.
Yesterday, Patrick Reed wasn't listed on Nike Golf's website.
He is now.

On Sunday, Reed finally had a spot towards the bottom of Nike’s golf athletes. He was listed below Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Alex Noren, Francesco Molinari, Thomas Pieters, Kevin Chappell and others.

Between leaving him off the website and not letting him wear a specific outfit, it wasn’t all great attention for the swoosh and their major-winning golfer.
