Patrick Reed's regular caddie is back, after taking maternity leave. Wife Justine is on the bag this week at the Wyndham Championship for the first time since the couple had their first child -- Windsor-Wells Reed -- in late May.

 

 

Perhaps getting Team Reed back in place will help Patrick regain the form he had starting at this point last season, when he won at Greensboro and then followed that up with victories at the Humana Challenge and Cadillac Championship. But since that win in March, Reed has missed six cuts and scored just one top-10 finish in the meantime -- a tie for fourth at the Bridgestone Invitational.

In case you're wondering, Justine's athletic resume is quite stout. She helped start the women’s golf team at Klein Forest High School in Houston, and also played soccer and swam. She is currently a registered nurse when she's not looping on the PGA Tour.
