Patrick Reed Broke the Gavel After Ringing the Bell at the New York Stock Exchange

Patrick Reed hit the gavel a little too hard at the New York Stock Exchange and broke the head right off it.

The first round of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs is in nearby Long Island, at Bethpage Black Golf Course. A lot of players are making stops in and around New York City as part of a media tour. Jordan Spieth literally lit up the Empire State Building and made a stop at The Tonight Show.

Reed’s duties were simple: wait for the bell to ring, and then hit the gavel three times. Apparently he’s got a little aggression pent up waiting to smash some golf balls at The Barclays.

Needless to say, Reed probably won’t be invited back to the NYSE anytime soon.
