LIV Golf star Patrick Reed has claimed that his DP World Tour login credentials 'haven't worked for two weeks' as golf's ongoing civil war rumbles on. Reed made the controversial switch to LIV earlier this summer and has played in four of the series' five events this year, but the DP World Tour have since confirmed his login is working as normal.
Most recently the American teed it up in Chicago alongside his fellow LIV Golf defectors finishing in a tie for 12th, after shooting five-under-par for the tournament across three rounds. In the team event though, Reed and his 4 Aces teammates once again came out on top as they won their fourth successive tournament.
This saw the 32-year-old, Dustin Johnson, Pat Perez and Talor Gooch rake in yet another £650,000 each in team prize money along with their individual winnings.
Reed's 12th-placed finish saw him collect £291,000 in the individual event which means he trousered a cool £941,000 for his efforts in Chicago. Following his celebrations at Rich Harvest Farms, the former Masters champion addressed the media and revealed the ongoing saga with the DP World Tour and PGA Tour had taken a new turn.
Reed revealed to GOLF.com's Sean Zak that his login details for the DP World Tour had been down amid the recent tensions between the tour and LIV golfers. He said: "It [the credentials] hasn't worked for two weeks, which is interesting. It worked a month ago."
This comes after the 32-year-old made a return to the Wentworth-based circuit just one week prior, finishing in a tie for fifth in the tour's flagship event - the BMW PGA Championship. Whilst out competing in Surrey, Reed and his fellow defectors were slammed by both Rory McIlroy and Billy Horschel for making a contentious return to the DP World Tour.
And Reed fired back, commenting that he had done as much - if not more - for the European-based tour than those hitting out at him. He told The Times : "I feel like [Rory] making those types of comments is insulting.
"Let’s be honest, I’ve [played the DP World Tour] more consistently than some of the Europeans on the PGA Tour, so for them to take shots at other guys, especially Billy and Rory taking shots at the LIV guys saying they shouldn’t be here. I’ve done more for this Tour than Billy has and I’ve played almost as much as Rory has for the past five years."
After Mirror Sport approached them for comment on Reed's claims the DP World Tour confirmed that his login to the main player portal was working as normal. They also explained they have other tournament specific sites updated weekly with unique logins.
