Patrick Reed has been slammed by fellow PGA Tour player Graham DeLaet for withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open after shooting 81 in the third round.


The 2014 Ryder Cup player, who made the cut with rounds of 69 and 73, faltered on Saturday with a nine-over-par 81, citing an ankle injury as the reason for his withdrawal.

But DeLaet, who shot 82 on Saturday, wasn’t convinced. With horrendous weather forecast, it meant the Canadian had to tee it up with Scott Piercy in a two-ball in the final group of the day from the tenth tee.

Late on Saturday night, DeLaet took to Twitter to call out Reed for his withdrawal.







On the morning of the final round, DeLaet tried to make light of the situation with this tweet..




DeLaet was four-over-par for his final round after 11 holes when play was suspended due to the poor weather.

Jimmy Walker has a one-shot lead from K.J. Choi and Brandt Snedeker, the latter of who is in the clubhouse. Martin Laird is tied ninth and five shots behind Walker.
