For the first time since 2014, Patrick Reed will exit the top 50 global rankings.

For the first time since January 2014, Patrick Reed is about to fall outside of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).

After winning the PGA Tour's Humana Challenge, the American pushed his way into the top 50 and eventually attained a career-high ranking of No. 6 in the world in 2020. 

Although his situation has become more vulnerable since switching to LIV Golf, which cannot currently give OWGR points, 

he will ultimately fall out of the top 50 after his poor missed cut in the DP World Tour's Open de France at Le Golf National.

His current decline has unavoidably been compounded by the Saudi-backed company's lack of OWGR status, 

as seen by the fact that he has only made four appearances in tournaments of note since quitting the PGA Tour.

While that procedure is happening, Reed will continue to compete for valuable OWGR points 

when he tees off with a group of other LIV Golf players at the Dunhill Links the following week.

The longer the Series is unable to give OWGR points, the more eligibility concerns LIV Golf players will experience, as evidenced by Reed's predicament, for specific Majors.

In fact, 50 LIV Golf players recently endorsed a letter requesting OWGR CEO Peter Dawson to decide in favour of LIV Golf as quickly as possible.
