It’s been just over a week since Patrick Reed won the green jacket with a triumphant Sunday performance at Augusta National, and in that time, he’s given that jacket quite the workout. Which is not only his right, but his responsibility; anybody who wins that green jacket and doesn’t wear it every minute of every day afterward needs to just give it on back.
Every Masters winner gets shuttled on a media tour in the days after their victory, and Reed’s no exception. You can see him above hanging with Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari, and 2 Chainz at a Cavs-Knicks game. A few nights later, he found his way to Game 1 of the Houston Rockets-Minnesota Timberwolves playoff series:
Reed did a turn on Jimmy Fallon’s show, sharing tales of life as a Masters champion:
He visited a Houston Astros game and looked less than enthused at his new jersey, because he’d probably have to take off the green jacket to put it on:
Of course, there’s the obligatory trip to the top of the Empire State Building:
Can’t forget the meeting with celebrity chef/donkey sauce enthusiast Guy Fieri:
And hey, speaking of delicious food, let’s not overlook Reed’s visit to his local Chick-Fil-A, where enterprising photographers caught him in the drive-through line:
Look who we had the pleasure of serving today at our Sawdust Road Chick-fil-A Drive Thru!! Welcome home to the 2018 Masters Winner- Patrick Reed with his beautiful wife! ⛳️

Reed draws his share of detractors, but this latest green jacket jaunt brought out some real gems, like this one from The MMQB’s Albert Breer:
Lol Patrick Reed wore the green jacket to the Rockets game. So this is like wearing your letter jacket to the mall in high school times 100, right? pic.twitter.com/sfyZVynin3

No, my friend, it’s not like that. It’s not like that at all.
Keep it rolling, Reed. Wear that green jacket till they have to chip it off your body.
