The 2018 Masters Champion Patrick Reed will return to European soil to play the Porsche European Open at Green Eagle Golf Courses in July.
After claiming his first Major Championship at Augusta National last week, and putting on the Green Jacket, Reed confirmed he will head back to the venue where he recorded an extremely rare albatross in his second round in 2017.
The American made his debut at the Porsche European Open and won a lot of fans with his performance, with his two on the par five 18th hole one of the highlights last year. The 27 year old will tee off once again at Green Eagle from July 26-29 as he takes part in a crucial event on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai.
“I really enjoyed my visit to Hamburg and Germany last year and can't wait to get back,” said Reed. “The competition at the Reeperbahn was a fantastic experience and I would love to add my name to the great list of winners, especially on the event’s 40th anniversary.”
Reed has won six US PGA Tour titles and before his triumph at Augusta had already claimed three top ten spots in the 2018 season. He will be joined in Hamburg by fellow American Pat Perez.
The event at Green Eagle will see players bidding to qualify for The Ryder Cup with Team Europe’s Captain Thomas Bjørn set to take part.
“Our aim is always to offer our audience a high-calibre field of players. With Patrick Reed on board, we look forward to seeing an absolute superstar in action as he takes on the likes of Pat Perez and defending champion Jordan Smith,” said Porsche European Open Tournament Director Dominik Senn.
