Keeping digging: Reed fires up crowd with shovel gesture

Patrick Reed played up to his role as pantomime villain at the Presidents Cup on Friday when he made a shoveling gesture during his foursomes match in a defiant reference to his controversial bunker penalty in the Bahamas last week. The American, who was given a two-shot penalty for improving his lie at the Hero World Challenge, has been regularly heckled at Royal Melbourne. Although mostly unfazed by the attention, the 29-year-old Texan could not help himself after draining a birdie at the 11th hole during a 3&2 defeat to the Internationals pairing of Marc Leishman and Abraham Ancer.
