Golf fans aren’t happy with Patrick Reed over bunkergate

Patrick Reed was caught improving his lie in a bunker and he’s copping it from golf fans.

If you haven’t heard already, Patrick Reed was penalised two-strokes after his third round of the Hero World Challenge for improving his lie in a bunker.
