Golf Channel's Breakdown Of Treegate Was Like One Of The Greatest Seinfeld Scenes

Golf Channel's Breakdown Of Treegate Was Like One Of The Greatest Seinfeld Scenes

If there was any bit of doubt about which tree the ball of Patrick Reed ended up in on the 17th hole of his third round at the Dubai Desert Classic, there isn't any now.

The clip below, from the Golf Channel, shows their panel slowing down the ball and also spot shadowing it, proving beyond any reasonable doubt that Reed's ball ended up in a different tree to the one he claimed.

When the panel explained what would have had to happen to the ball if it ricocheted into the other tree, it came across eerily like a classic Seinfeld scene.

"It would have to reverse directions, change speed, and start going towards the green again, gain altitude," explained Golf Central's host Brandel Chamblee, whom Reed recently filed a $750 million lawsuit against.

These words couldn't help but remind us of the Seinfeld scene where Jerry debunks a far-fetched Kramer story about where piece of spit (or loogie) had landed.

Patrick Reed produced a sensational final round of seven under par, but it would not be enough to take down Rory McIlroy, who spoke after the round about how much the win meant to him.

"It means a lot. It's actually funny, Harry said to me, finally we get a gold bib. Obviously I haven't won one of these big ones before. Look it was a battle all day. Honestly it's been a battle all week.

"I really feel like I haven't had my best all week but I just managed my game so well and played really smart. Even that second shot at the last there, you know, I was in two minds.


"I probably could have got to the green but seeing what happened yesterday and what happened last year, giving myself a wedge to try to get up-and-down to try to get the win."
