Something about golf in Scotland just seems to bring out the best in Patrick Reed.
Reed was the star of Ryder Cup USA in 2014 at Gleneagles with a 3-0-1 record in his debut (a losing effort for the U.S.). On Thursday in the first round of the Open Championship, he made two quick pars on holes 1 and 2 before this beauty at No. 3:

Reed followed that with a birdie at No. 4 to get to 3 under through four holes and right near the top of the leaderboard.
