00:00
So, Patrick Reed won the Masters
00:02
and his green jacket tour's already in full throttle.
00:05
The day after slipping that bad boy on for the first time
00:07
Reed had front row seats at a New York Knicks game.
00:10
Okay, so having to watch the Knicks these days
00:12
sounds more like a punishment than a prize
00:14
but not when the Cleveland Cavaliers are in town.
00:17
That's right, the king was at MSG.
00:20
Oh, Lebron James was there too.
00:23
It was also perfect timing because
00:24
Cleveland's J. R. Smith is a huge fan of Reed's
00:27
and he wants the Masters champ
00:29
as his member member partner at their golf club in Houston,
00:32
Blue Jack National.
00:33
When you combine Smith's flexing
00:35
and Reed's shushing,
00:37
sounds like a formidable squad.
00:39
In fact, J. R. is already guaranteeing victory.
00:42
Of course,
00:43
we can all fair pretty well at our home clubs
00:45
if we partied with the current Masters champ.
00:47
But we're hoping this actually happens
00:50
and that someone is there to film it.
00:52
Oh, and don't get too jealous Jordan Spieth,
00:54
you can still have your partner back
00:56
in time for the Rider Cup.
00:57
But basketball players weren't the only celebrities
01:00
Reed met while in New York.
01:01
He sat next to comedians Chris Rock
01:03
and Aziz Ansari at the game.
01:04
And the man who loves to cook
01:06
bumped into Guy Fieri.
01:08
Between the one liners and recipes
01:10
he probably picked up from those guys,
01:12
Reed already has a leg up on hosting
01:14
next year's Champions Dinner.
01:16
Savvy move.
01:17
While in New York, Reed's media tour appearances
01:19
ran the gamut from CBS This Morning
01:21
to The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
01:24
The 27 year old also visited
01:25
the New York Stock Exchange
01:27
and reigned in his prodigious power
01:29
so as not to break the gavel again.
01:31
And Reed made it to the top of the Empire State Building.
01:34
Probably scaling the skyscraper
01:36
with his bare hands
01:37
because King Kong ain't got (beep)
01:39
on Captain America!
01:42
The only disappointing part of Patrick's victory tour
01:44
is he didn't have time to squeeze in a visit
01:47
to Gold Digest headquarters.
01:49
Hoping he'd come,
01:49
I even brought in the green jacket
01:51
I won on my golf trip last summer to work.
01:54
Because I wanted to get a picture
01:56
with the newest green jacket winner
01:57
and you know,
01:58
welcome him into the club.
02:00
Instead I just got a lot of funny looks on the subway.
02:03
Bummer.
02:05
Maybe another time Patrick.
02:07
After all, you've got 12 more months
02:09
of getting to parade around
02:10
in the world's most coveted coat,
02:12
so enjoy.
02:13
And just one request.
02:15
Please,
02:16
please show up to the first T
02:17
at the Rider Cup with it on.
