Reed’s hole-in-one – the second of his PGA TOUR career – helped him
to a 4-under 66 in the first round of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot.

Reed’s ace on the 165-yard seventh completed a 6-3-1 stretch (double-birdie-eagle). He hit 9-iron.

“I
was excited about it, but really I knew from that point that, hey, you
need to settle down, get ready for the next hole,” Reed said. “Around
here at Winged Foot, every golf shot, you have to pay full attention
because if you hit one poor golf shot, a lot of things can happen out
here.”

Reed’s double on No. 5 was the only hole he played over par
all day. He made three birdies on the back nine to shoot 66. He was one
shot behind leader Justin Thomas after the morning wave completed play.
