1 month ago
1. Patrick Reed, United States -- Coming off a 3-1-1 performance in the Ryder Cup, which helped spark the United States to its first victory over Europe in eight years, Reed will look for a quick start to his 2016-17 season. He is coming off another strong campaign, having finished third in the FedExCup point standings after recording 11 finishes in the top 10, including his fifth PGA Tour victory in The Barclays to open the playoffs and runner-up finishes in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and the Valero Texas Open. Only FedEx champion Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson finished ahead of him in the point standings, and he is up to No. 7 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Reed is making his fourth appearance in the CIMB Classic and last year tied for 10th to post his best result. He tied for 40th in 2014 and tying for 26th two years ago.
