Patrick Reed, who advanced to the U.S. Amateur semifinals last year, signed his papers today to transfer from the University of Georgia to Augusta State. A three-time American Junior Golf Association All-American, Reed is the No. 40 amateur in the world, according to Golfweek magazine.
Reed qualified for three of Georgias four fall tournaments; he missed qualifying for the other event because of strep throat. He posted a 74.56 stroke average with his best finish 21st at the Brickyard Collegiate Championship.
Reed has posted two top-10 finishes in three amateur events this year.
