Patrick Reed refused to shoot until a camera crew left his surroundings after someone jingled change

Tony McGregor isn’t the only one who hates coinage.

PATRICK REED ON Thursday grew frustrated with a camera crew at the Porsche European Open in Germany for making too much noise.

While Reed was preparing to hit a shot just off the green, he stopped and demanded the camera crew move away from him. Reed’s caddy could be seen trying to direct the cameraman away before Reed stopped.

“Well, thank you. Stop,” Reed said to a member of the crew after his caddy told him he’d been rattling change.

“I need y’all to go on that side of the green,” Reed said. “Please. Walk away. Camera guy, too, since he’s part of you. Sorry. He lost privileges by going like that with change.”

Two people walked away while one person holding a microphone stayed in the same spot, apparently not included in the exile.

“Keep going. I’m not hitting until y’all get the heck out of here. Like, completely out of here,” Reed continued.

“Ridiculous,” Reed said before going back to his shot.

Of course, all golfers are sensitive about distractions while they prepare to hit the ball, but Reed likely didn’t do himself many favors, given the already-shake view of him on the PGA Tour.
