Reed setting the PGA on fire

When it comes to successful alumni in the sporting world, no one is hotter right now than golfer Patrick Reed.

With over $2 million in winnings already this year and a 2014 campaign that saw him rack up two wins and four Top 10 finishes, not to mention over $4 million in winnings, the San Antonio-born Reed is certainly on fire.

After winning two NCAA Div. I golf championships with Augusta State University, Reed turned pro in 2011 and has been gaining momentum ever since. On Jan. 12, he won his fourth PGA Tour title at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Currently, he’s the 15th ranked golfer in the world according to the Official World Golf Ranking.
