According to Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis, Reed was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday morning and later diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. His wife told Lewis that it got really bad very quickly.”
The 31-year-old Reed will not play in the BMW Championship this coming weekend, though he did say his ankle is doing better and he’s making progress against his bilateral lung infection.
“I’m on the road to recovery,” Reed said in a statement to Golf Channel. “Once I’m cleared from the doctors, I look forward to returning. I wish you all the best and I can’t wait to get back out there.”

Reed, who won the Farmers Insurance Open back in January and recorded three top-20 finishes in major tournaments this year, is currently 22nd on the FedExCup points list and projected to drop four spots when play is completed at The Northern Trust later today.
He won’t be able to qualify for the U.S. Ryder Cup team, but could still be chosen as a captain’s pick, provided he is healthy.
