CLEVELAND, OHIOFour-time PGA TOUR winner and 2014 U.S. Ryder Cup Team member Patrick Reed has signed with WME | IMG for worldwide management and marketing representation.
With his victory at the 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Monday, Reed joined Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia as one of only four players in the last 20 years to record four or more US PGA TOUR victories by the age of 24. 
Ryder Cup playe Reed, pictured left, has three US PGA Tour wins in the last calendar year and now holds the No. 14 position on the Official World Golf Rankings following last week’s victory. His four career victories are the most by any player on TOUR under the age of 25.
“With my 2015 season off to a great start, I’m excited to have the team at IMG and their partners at WME supporting me on and off the course,” said Reed. “WME | IMG has the necessary experience and global resources to help manage my career and lead my business.” 
Reed claimed victories in 2014 at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation and the WGC-Cadillac Championship, where he became the youngest winner of a WGC event. He also made his debut on the U.S. Ryder Cup Team, where he earned a 3-0-1 record in four matches played.
In 2010 and 2011, Reed led the Augusta State University men’s golf team to the NCAA Division 1 Championship before turning professional. He won his first PGA TOUR tournament in 2013 at the Wyndham Championship with his wife, Justine, as caddy. 
Guy Kinnings, Global Head of Golf at IMG commented, “Patrick has a proven track record on golf’s biggest stages and there is no one in the game with more passion. His success in recent years has put him in world-class company on the golf course and his playoff victory last week at Kapalua is further proof of his talent and poise. "Together with the leadership at WME, we are excited to employ our global resources on Patrick’s behalf and we look forward to working with him across all facets of his career.”
