Patrick Reed prevails in Mexico, and Viktor Hovland rallies in Puerto Rico with victories as different as their personalities
American Patrick Reed and Norwegian Viktor Hovland, polar opposites in personality, prove their worth on the weekend as they win on the PGA Tour. The combative Reed, a target of ongoing criticism about his perceived penchant for bending the rules, maintained his patience and holed key putts to win the WGC Mexico Championship. Reed pointed to his ability to “block out all of the noise” as key.
Across the Caribbean, easygoing Viktor Hovland won his first PGA Tour title in dramatic fashion at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. Co-hosts Bob Bubka and Jay Randolph Jr. recap the weekend and preview this week’s Honda Classic, which begins the Florida Swing on the road to Augusta and the Masters. Also, Morning Read co-founder Alex Miceli joins the show for the featured interview.
