"DQ and ban him" - Fellow pro calls for action on Patrick Reed

Reed

Solheim Cup star Anne van Dam has led the criticism of Patrick Reed's antics in a waste area during the third round of the Hero World Challenge - calling for the former Masters champion to be BANNED from the PGA Tour.

Reed, 29, was assessed a two-shot penalty after completing his round on Friday after television cameras caught him improving his lie in the hazard on the par-5 11th hole. 

After his round, the American said that it wasn't intentional but that he accepted the penalty after reviewing the video evidence.

• Popular Scots event won't take place in 2020

However, many were angered by what they say, chief among them Dutch star van Dam. 

She tweeted:

Former Ryder Cup player Ross Fisher was amongst those who 'Liked' this tweet.

• BANNED! Historic club takes bold stand

• 2020 Ryder Cup role for Lawrie

In response to a follower, van Dam added what she thinks would constitute an appropriate sanction for Reed...

Ryder Cup-winning captain Thomas Bjorn also reacted to the footage...

Interestingly, footage has emerged of Reed appearing to do the exact same thing in a bunker in 2015...

The two shots Reed was docked turned his 72 into a 74. He now enters the final round in the Bahamas three shots adrift of leader Gary Woodland.
