Reed looking to end slump in Hamburg

Patrick Reed is hoping to rekindle his form at this week's Porsche European Open in Germany.

The American is still searching for his first win of the year after a trying time on the course. Reed's Ryder Cup successes have not followed him onto the tour, as just three top ten finishes since October 2016 seeing him slip from world number seven to 26th in the world rankings. 

Added to that, Reed arrives in Hamburg off the back of two missed cuts. 

"I feel like I have actually been playing better than I did last year and I'm just not getting the results I want," quipped the five-time PGA Tour winner on 

"I have been getting a lot of top 20s, top 25s but haven’t won a golf tournament yet this year and haven't given myself many opportunities to win. 
"So hopefully this is that week that I can get it on the right side and instead of finishing tenth or 15th I can get the win."

Reed added that he believes the Green Eagle Golf Course will be playing really long this week, especially given all the rain around Hamburg. 

"It's so long, especially being wet and having some of those long par fives," said Reed.

"It is definitely going to show a fun and exciting finish, and really just need to make sure you ride the ship on the long hauls and make as many birdies you can with your opportunities."

Reed joins a star studded line-up in Hamburg that includes major winners Charl Schwartzel and Jimmy Walker.
