Former Augusta State All-American gets exemption

Former Augusta State All-American Patrick Reed received an unexpected sponsor exemption into this week’s  season-ending Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Disney.
Reed was given the exemption that was initially awarded to Boo Weekley, who got into the tournament on his own status after 2009 Disney champion Stephen Ames withdrew.
Reed has Monday qualified for six Tour events this season earning $302,977 and is $158,000 away from cracking the top 150 in winnings and earning partial status in 2013 as well as an exemption to the final stage of Q-School next month in California.
