Patrick Reed launches lawsuit against Brandel Chamblee, Golf Channel

Golfer Patrick Reed filed a lawsuit against Brandel Chamblee and the Golf Channel, seeking $750 million in damages for defamation.

Reed alleges, according to court documents, that Chamblee, a Golf Channel analyst, has “actively” targeted Reed to “destroy his reputation, create hate, and a hostile work environment” for the player.

The 2018 Masters winner claims he has been the victim of “calculated, malicious” attacks that have “had a direct effect on his livelihood” for the past nine years.

“It is well-known on tour that Mr Reed has been abused and endured more than any other golfer from fans or spectators who have been allowed to scream obscenities only to be glorified by NBC’s Golf Channel for doing so,” the suit reads.
