Reed on wife-caddie: 'We don't plan on stopping'

Last week, Patrick and Justine Reed became the first husband-and-wife team to win on the PGA Tour in more than 17 years.
The trial run for their player-caddie partnership came in spring 2012, during a Monday qualifier in Houston. It was 100-something degrees outside, and Reed overstuffed his staff bag with water bottles and rain gear that pushed the weight to about 50 pounds. “I made it the heaviest I could to see if she could do it,” he said.
Turns out Reed was the one who struggled in the humid conditions, while Justine (just 5-foot-1), he said, “was like she was still on the first hole, still energized and ready to go.”
“I knew at that point this is going to work,” he recalled Tuesday at The Barclays, just two days after winning the Wyndham Championship in a playoff. “We don’t plan on stopping any time soon.” 
Justine Reed has two bachelor’s degrees, in nursing and health admission, and put her career on hold to tote the bag for her husband.
“I’m lucky,” said Reed, 23, who got married last December. “There’s not a lot of men that can say that out here. I’m just so lucky to have somebody like that, and she’s such a fierce competitor and she’s always so composed that it feeds on me.”

Interesting couple. Gald they won - esp when it was a play off and his driver shot went into the rough partly block by the hanging trees leaves. But what a great shot he did - to less than 10 feet to the pin.... his wilfe when standing next to his golf bag look so petite..golf bag look humongous..! must be tough carrying his bag.. but hey ! it was a happy ending for them......! Quite sure they will be a wife/husband team for a while.

I think if we've got to the stage where some "men" are carrying their other half's handbag, then they can jolly well carry our golf bag.......

Yes agreed. 
That super shot out of rough into the green was a classy act.

This pairing is  commendable but I think still better to leave it to professional caddie.

As she has caddied for him since 2012, i think she is adept to continue to do so.
Hope to see more of them. Interesting pairing
