Anyone who says golf isn't dangerous should consult with Patrick Reed.
The 24-year-old paid the price this week for winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Reed was wearing a cap for the competition and upon removing he revealed one of the worst tan lines you'll ever see. Check it out:
The tan line looked even more pronounced on television:

Dreadful hat tan aside, the victory was big for Reed. It was his first title since winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March 2014. After that title, which made Reed the youngest winner of a World Golf Championships event, he declared himself one of the top five golfers in the world. Now Reed is in elite company. Reed joins Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia as the only men to earn four PGA Tour victories before turning 25.
As bad as Reed's tan line was, was it worse than the one Stewart Cink sported last year? You be the judge:
