Watch: Patrick Reed slides down hill at Scottish Open

In the final tuneup before next week’s Open Championship, a number of Americans are participating in the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart, and Patrick Reed has already found himself in trouble on the links.

The 25-year-old was forced to play out of the rough on a steep slope at the par-5 second, and after his second shot underwhelmingly slid down the hill, Reed followed suit – and not near as gracefully as Phil Mickelson at last year’s PGA Championship.

Reed went on to bogey the hole, and finish his opening round with a 3-over 75, six shots back of leaders Scott Hend and Felipe Aguilar.
