Report: Patrick Reed pulls $750 million defamation lawsuit against Golf Channel, Brandel Chamblee

Patrick Reed has given up on his legal battle with the Golf Channel and analyst Brandel Chamblee.

Reed filed papers in Texas federal court on Wednesday to officially against the Golf Channel and Chamblee, . He did not give a reason.

alleging that Chamblee and the Golf Channel were conspiring with the PGA Tour and its commissioner to “engage in a pattern and practice of defaming” him since he was 23 years old. Reed, now 32, said their goal was to “destroy his reputation, create hate and a hostile work environment for him, and with the intention to discredit his name and accomplishments.”

Reed claims he lost “multi-million dollar sponsorship deals” as a result, and that he was “terminated” from the PGA Tour. Reed, however, resigned from the Tour when he left for the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

Chamblee has been critical of Reed in the past, both because of his decision to leave the PGA Tour for LIV Golf and due to Reed’s rule violations or near-rule violations — something he has been accused of since his time playing collegiately at Georgia.

Reed even went as far as listing personal attacks he’s heard while golfing on the Tour in his lawsuit.
