One of the perks to winning The Masters is that you get to wear a green jacket. But what many people may not know is that you can only wear the green jacket outside of Augusta National if you are the current champion.

Because of that, current champion Patrick Reed has been wearing his jacket everywhere for the past two weeks. And by everywhere, I mean everywhere. Reed is wearing his jacket as if it was going out of style.

There’s no shame in Patrick Reed to be wearing the green jacket everywhere. If I won The Masters, I would do exactly the same thing. And if you only get to wear the jacket out for 365 days, you want to make the most of it.

I’m not sure Reed has worn his green jacket to enough places. Take it with you when you have to go to the supermarket or even to something like Burning Man. What I’m saying is that Patrick Reed only has this jacket in your personal closet for a year before it remains at Augusta and who knows if he’ll will win again. I would wear that jacket every day if I could.
