Tiger Woods burns Justin Thomas after big drive

Patrick Reed raced into a three-stroke lead

But Smith, making his Presidents Cup debut at Royal Melbourne this week, refused to accept Reed's justification. And a couple of members of the global team expect he'll face a public backlash.

"I hope the crowd absolutely gives it to not only him but everyone (on the US team) next week", Smith said. "I don't have any sympathy for anyone that cheats".

Woods's problems at the short par-four 14th began when he yanked his drive and ended up in a nasty lie in a waste bunker near the green, from where he pretty much had to hit and hope that the ball came of the sand with the appropriate speed, spin and trajectory.

Patrick Reed was caught shuffling sand to his advantage.

"Well, I haven't seen the video, so I wouldn't be able to tell you", he added when asked if he needed to be more careful with his pre-shot routine.

"I really don't care (what fans say) as long as they're on our team but I'm sure if it did get out of hand I think definitely everyone on the worldwide team might tell the guy to settle down a little bit, but we'll wait and see".

The North Korean envoy accused the Europeans of playing "the role of pet dog of the United States in recent months". Kim Song as seen during the UN General Assembly on September 30, 2019.

Reed, the 2018 Masters champion, is not helped by the fact that he has been involved in some high-profile incidents, including his criticism of captain Jim Furyk after the U.S. Ryder Cup loss in France past year.

Also of anticipation is whether playing captain Woods pairs himself with Reed at all.

Why was Patrick Reed penalised two shots at the Hero World Challenge?

"I had a lot of good opportunities to put the ball in there close from where I drove it and just didn't quite hit it close enough". After seeing it on camera and seeing sand move, obviously it's a penalty. That will affect both his start time and who he plays the last 18 holes with on Saturday. At the end of the day, after I didn't feel like in the ... while I was there playing the hole, that I really did any kind of rules infraction, but then afterwards seeing it on camera, there was [rules official] Slugger [White], and I sat down and Slugger said that you have to take 2 strokes.

The 43-year-old was one of the final additions to the 18-man field for the event hosted by Tiger Woods and was among the leaders for the majority of the week.

"I'm pleased with the way I finished on the back nine today".
