After the PGA Tour, it was Brandel Chamblee that Patrick Reed decided to attack. Through a sultry attorney, the 2018 Masters winner is filing a defamation lawsuit and requires great damage.
The complaint against Brandel Chamblee, a former professional player, who is a famous Golf Channel consultant in the USA, also concerns the television channel.
The lawsuit was filed in the United States Court for the Southern District of Texas by attorney Larry Klayman, who was prominent for his numerous lawsuits against the administration of President Bill Clinton in the 1990s. This Republican is famous for his extreme positions.
Klayman is also at the root of a “collective action” launched in late June against the PGA Tour’s decision to ban players who believe it has detracted from tournaments in which he and others have appeared…
Reed was abused and despised by fans or spectators more than any other golfer
Reed accuses Chamblee and the channel of deliberately “targeting” him since he was 23 years old. “Destroy his reputation, create a hidden wave of hatred around him, and create a hostile work environment with the intent to discredit his name and his performance as a world-class young golfer.”
We can also read the document sent to the prosecutor’s office: “Mr. Reed is infamous for being abused on the tour and being more despised than any other golfer by fans or spectators, who are encouraged to praise and then glorified by NBC. Chamblee and the Golf Channel are building audience growth, better listen rates, clicks to increase revenues. got it in return.
750 million dollars!
The complaint also claims that since leaving LIV Golf, “Captain America”, nicknamed “Captain Saudi” on social networks, has lost multiple sponsorship contracts representing several million dollars.
Quantity requested by Reed 750 million dollars and his lawyer is willing to do anything to impress the Court.
Specifically, he compares his client’s situation to his. LeBron James or Cristiano Ronaldo. Altogether…
The Portuguese clarifies without hesitation that when he left Real Madrid, he was not the victim of a smear campaign targeting his image. It also mentions Reed’s lifetime membership on the DP World Tour, which only 3 Americans before him achieved: Nicklaus, Palmer, and Watson.
“Fools dare everything: even we know them that way” A phrase borrowed from Michel Audiard that seems very appropriate to us here.
The zealous swindler
A nine-time PGA TOUR winner, including the Masters in 2018, Reed has been involved in countless cheating controversies throughout his career.
Most notable came at the 2019 Hero World Challenge, where Reed refused to heal his lie in a bunker when the cameras showed otherwise.
Brandel Chamblee went on the air and felt that Reed had an ego “Big as Jupiter”.
