Patrick Reed has been roundly condemned on social media after he made light of his alleged cheating last weekend during the second day of the Presidents Cup.
Reed, 29, has been at the centre of a storm ever since footage of him appearing to improve his lie in a waste area during the third round of the Hero World Challenge went viral.
On day two of this week's Presidents Cup, where Reed is part of Tiger Woods' American side that is taking on an Internationals side captained by Ernie Els, the furore flared up again.
Playing alongside Webb Simpson in their fourballs match with Abraham Ancer and Marc Leishman, Reed was lining up a putt on the 11th hole at Royal Melbourne when somebody in the crowd yelled: 'Miss!'
WATCH - HOW TO SHOOT LOWER SCORES
After converting the putt, Reed then cupped his hand to his ear and then used his putter to mimic a shoveling action - a direct reference to his Hero World Challenge antics.

Naturally, people were unimpressed...

That takes some balls. I cheated, got caught, lied about it, now I think it’s funny. Good luck with that. Golf fans remember.— Ray Brown (@Raybrown1959Ray) December 13, 2019
Having some fun? Be more tone deaf.. wow— DarrylEnglish (@dmoney9311) December 13, 2019
Not to offend anyone , but he is a cancer to this team, the entire PGA and the world of golf. Selfishness has no spot in sports or life.— BRITT LAUGHINGHOUSE (@blaughinghouse1) December 13, 2019
The tour suspends guys for weed and taking an unapproved medicine, but when it comes to cheating there’s 0 action. What a joke!— kevin hogue (@krhogue62) December 13, 2019
Reed and Simpson, incidentally, ended up losing their match to Leishman and Ancer.
