Patrick Reed is likely to miss the tournament with a back issue which he picked up at Versailles hotel during the Open de France.

One of the strangest reasons imaginable is that a soft mattress in a French hotel caused LIV Golf star Patrick Reed to injure his back last week, leading up to the DP World Tour’s Alfred Dunhill Lynx at St Andrew’s. It meant, he had to withdraw from the championship.

It would have been his third European Event in four weeks if the 32-year-old golfer has participated in Dunhill Lynx. The earlier two Championships he played in were the BMW PGA Championship and Open de France, which concluded last week.

However, following this bizarre incident, Reed won’t participate in the upcoming event due to a back issue which he picked up at Versailles hotel during the Open de France. “The mattress was just too soft for me,” Reed said. “I played well in the pro-am but the pain in my back was getting worse.”

“It’s disappointing as I was looking forward to coming back to France after being there for the Ryder Cup. “I first played the Dunhill Links back in 2011. It was my first European Tour event, so that’s another event I was looking forward to playing,” he added.

Reed joined the Saudi-backed LIV Golf earlier this year for a whopping sum of £50 million. After joining the rebel league, the American golfer said that he is joining them to spend quality time with his family.

However, despite cashing in on millions, his world ranking has suffered big time as he is no more ranked in the world’s top 50 golfers. Reed will slip even further after being forced out with an injury.
