Reed to silence the Matchplay crowd next week

Patrick Reed (pictured) created quite a storm when trying to tame the Europeans in the Ryder Cup but the rookie wasn't out of place on the big stage and he returns to the UK next week to take part in the World Matchplay.

Reed has proven that this format doesn't inconvenience him at all and at 9/1 to be the outright winner he could prove to be a bit of value in advance of the tournament getting underway.

Reed is the pick in what is a real competitive 16-strong line-up with Shane Lowry a 12/1 shot and Victor Dubuisson another who could prove each-way value at 9/1 after making a big impression at the Ryder Cup.

volvo World Matchplay odds: Henrik Stenson 4/1, Graeme McDowell 5/1, Jamie Donaldson 8/1, Victor Dubuisson 9/1, Paul Casey 9/1, Patrick Reed 9/1, Joost Luiten 11/1, Shane Lowry 12/1, Francesco Molinari 16/1, Stephen Gallacher 20/1, Thomas Bjorn 20/1, Thongchai Jaidee 20/1, Jonas Blixt 20/1, Pablo Larrazabal 25/1, Mikko Ilonen 25/1, Alaxander Levy 33/1
