PGA Tour winner Patrick Reed's media guide lists his favourite quote as "Nerves just mean you're prepared."

Well, the the 23-year old rookie seemed more than prepared for the Wyndham Championship playoff Sunday, beating fellow rookie Jordan Spieth with a birdie on the second playoff hole.

Patrick Reed Wins Wyndham Championship

When it comes to his equipment, Reed has had an interesting rookie season. He started the year as Nike player, with a bag full of Nike clubs. He played 14 events, missed 8 cuts and needed to make a change.

At the HP Byron Nelson Championship in May, Reed switched from Nike to Callaway. Since then, he has made 8 of 9 cuts and won his first PGA Tour title at the Wyndam Championship on Sunday.

Reed has embraced a lot of Callaway's latest equipment, including the new FT Optiforce driver, three Callaway Mack Daddy 2 wedges and an Odyssey White Hot Pro #3 putter.

In the three events he's played with the Callaway FT Optiforce driver, Reed has finished T7th, T9th and 1st, averaging 13.4 more yards off the tee.

Interestingly, his 9.5-degree Optiforce driver was the only wood in his bag last week. The rookie had two 2-irons in play, with one bent to 15 degrees and one at 18-degrees.

Following in the footsteps of Callaway's Phil Mickelson, Reed also holed his winning birdie putt with his Callaway HEX Chrome+ ball.
