The feud between two of the world’s top golfers continued Wednesday with firm LIV Golf critic Rory McIlroy saying defector Patrick Reed was not ‘living in reality’ after Reed tossed a tee towards the world number one on the practice range of the Dubai Desert Classic.
The incident, which occurred on Tuesday and was first reported by Spanish website TenGolf, saw Reed apparently standing behind McIlroy while he was hitting balls.
When McIlroy did not turn and speak to him, Reed left and threw a tee on the ground in anger.
Reed later called McIlroy an ‘immature little child’ for the snubbing.

The two have been at odds since McIlroy criticised players, including Reed, who joined the Saudi-backed LIV Golf circuit, although McIlroy played down the incident.
