Patrick Reed Ends Streak of Playing Majors by Withdrawing from US Open Qualifier

Sports News: Patrick Reed Withdraws from US Open Qualifier to End Streak of Playing Majors

Patrick Reed and Sergio Garcia’s Qualifying Struggles for U.S. Open

In a surprising turn of events, both Patrick Reed and Sergio Garcia faced difficulties during the U.S. Open qualifying rounds on Monday. Reed, who has played every major since the 2014 Masters, decided to withdraw from the qualifying event, thus ending his streak.

On the other hand, Sergio Garcia, who was vying for his 25th straight U.S. Open appearance, also encountered challenges during the qualifying rounds. Despite his past success, Garcia made crucial mistakes towards the end of the round, leading to him missing out on securing a spot for this year’s U.S. Open.

The qualifying event, held at the Dallas Athletic Club, saw intense competition among the players. Garcia’s hopes were dashed after he failed to secure one of the 11 spots available, ultimately settling for being the first alternate for the tournament.

Both Reed and Garcia are affiliated with LIV Golf, a non-world ranking points earning organization. Reed’s decision to withdraw from the qualifying event puts his chances of participating in the U.S. Open in jeopardy, as per the USGA regulations.

Despite their setbacks, both players have shown resilience in the face of adversity. The U.S. Open, scheduled for June 13-16 at Pinehurst No. 2, will showcase the top talent in the golfing world. As the tournament approaches, the anticipation for an exciting and competitive event continues to build.
