Written by Shane Ryan the book “Slaying the Tiger claims Reed stole a Scotty Cameron putter, cash, and cheated in a golf event at the University Of Georgia. 

Reed strongly denies all the allegations and has now assembled a legal team to fight the claims.

“I was shocked. That was the first time I heard about it. To read something like and see how degrading and false it is, to have someone say something like that without coming to me first and asking me, it’s shocking,” Reed told The Golf Channel.
I an effort to clear his name Team Reed has taken sworn statements from his college's coaches Chris Haack and Josh Gregory.  Pat transferred from Georgia to Augusta State, following two “drinking incidences.”

“Both [coaches] said this is never in question and I was never suspended for it or kicked out of school for it. Nothing,” Reed said. “The main thing is we want to set the record straight. We wanted to let everyone know none of that stuff is true, all of it is false.”
It is all set to get very messy.
