What Did Brandel Chamblee Say? PGA Cheating & Defamation Lawsuit

In a surprising turn of events, Patrick Reed has sued Brandel Chamblee, continuing a protracted dispute. The lawsuit is for a whopping 750 million USD, and social media has acted hysterically, as expected. Read into the details.

What Did Brandel Chamblee Say? PGA Cheating And Defamation Lawsuit

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

The case was filed in the U.S. District Court, where Reed has claimed that calculated and malicious attacks from Chamblee directly affected his livelihood. Likewise, the suit also claims the defendants are in cahoot with the Tour to damage LIV Golf.

In addition to criticizing Reed and other golfers for abandoning the PGA Tour for the Greg Norman-led, Saudi Arabia-sponsored LIV Golf Series, Reed has stated that Chamblee has a history of calling him a cheater.


The lawsuit also contains a litany of slurs and comments that Reed has overheard while competing in golf tournaments, most of which have called him out for cheating.

The suit reads- “It is well-known on a 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 32-year-old professional golfer has participated in two LIV competitions thus far, placing third in the event held outside of Portland and fifth two weeks ago in New Jersey. In both competitions, Dustin Johnson has led his side to victories.

Patrick was also a part of the British Open in St. Andrews, finishing in a tie for 47th place. He played in a similar competition last week in South Korea and this week in Singapore as part of the International Series. LIV Golf endorses the series having several of its players participating in the Asian Tour-sponsored tournaments.

Allegations On Brandel Chamblee And The Lawyers’ Viewpoint

Patrick Reed, a former PGA Tour participant in the LIV Golf Series, filed a defamation complaint against another pro golfer, Brandel Chamblee, and Golf Channel on Tuesday night. 

The lawsuit was submitted on Tuesday to the Southern District of Texas’s federal court. Brandel’s lawyer, Mr. Mohanan, has stated that they want Patrick Reed’s disciplinary records as part of the discovery process.


The 2018 Master champion Reed claims that Chamblee and the network have been actively targeting him for almost a decade (since he was 23) to destroy his notoriety, create hate, and create a hostile work environment for him. 

While filing the charge, Reed added that it was all intended to discredit his name and accomplishments as a young, elite, world-class golfer. Earlier this year, Patrick switched from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf Invitational Series.

For quite a long time, Reed has been famous as a contentious player on the PGA Tour. He left the PGA despite a lucrative offer and joined rival LIV Golf, financed by Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, he has already been at the center of several cheating controversies.

On the eve of the Presidents Cup in 2019, he was seen on camera improperly altering his lie in a bunker, earning him a two-shot penalty and a stern rebuke from Chamblee. It was a long feud between these two golfers, and the recent lawsuit filing has intensified the whole debacle.
