Justine Reed, wife and part-time caddie to husband Patrick, was hospitalized on Tuesday after suffering a grand mal seizure (a loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions).
The incident happened while Justine Reed was taking a bath at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Fla., where Patrick Reed is competing in this week's Shark Shootout, which begins today.
Patrick Reed released this statement through his management company, IMG:
"I withdrew from today's pro-am to be with my wife, Justine, who suffered a grand mal seizure (Tuesday) afternoon while in the bathtub. We are really fortunate that she is OK and lucky that I was in the room with her to save her from drowning. I am so grateful to the paramedic team, IMG and the doctors at Naples Community Hospital for their support and care during an extremely difficult time."
Patrick Reed did tee off in the first round of the Shark Shootout this morning with partner Brandt Snedeker.
Based on a tweet from Golf Channel's Lisa Cornwell on Thursday morning, it seems Justine Reed is doing OK:
