Fast forward to Saturday at the RBC Heritage. Reed, one-under for the day and about to hit his second shot into the difficult par-4 18th, pulled his shot into the hazard just left of the green. He waded down into the marsh and tried to take a swing at it, but the club twisted in his hands and the ball took off almost 90 degrees left.
Where did his ball finish? Next to a boat, the biggest in the harbor, named "top five." All that led to a double bogey, helping Reed to a one-over 72 on the day.
