Former PGA Tour pro brands Patrick Reed a "d**k"

Patrick Reed

Fresh from a heckler calling him a cheat during the Sentry Tournament of Champions play-off last night, Patrick Reed has now been branded a "d**k" by a former PGA Tour pro in an extraordinary social media rant.

Chris DiMarco, a three-time PGA Tour winner and the man who lost out to Tiger Woods in a play-off for the 2005 Masters, took to Twitter to savage his fellow American.

DiMarco, 51, was seemingly unimpressed that Reed failed to acknowledge his alleged cheating at last month's Hero World Challenge during his post round television interview in Hawaii.

He tweeted...

Wow.

Naturally, this provoked a strong response from many of his 72,000 Twitter followers, with DiMarco doubling down on his disgust in several replies.

During the play-off at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, a fan was heard to shout 'Cheat' at Reed as his birdie attempt at the third extra hole raced past the hole.

Reed made his follow-up putt for par but it made no material difference to the result as Justin Thomas made birdie to win his 12th PGA Tour title.
