Despite just 11 European Tour starts – three if you exclude co-sanctioned PGA Tour events, Patrick Reed has moved into the Race to Dubai’s Top 10.
After posting a first-round 65 and into the lead at the DP World Tour Championship, the 28-year old American star is ranked No. 8.
Reed is ahead of Euro Tour stalwarts, and Rolex Series winners, such as Alex Noren and Branden Grace.
