Patrick Reed is known for being a brash, hyper-competitive golfer, just as much as he's known for being a master of match play thanks to his stellar play at the Ryder Cup.

This week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, both aspects of Reed's game were on full display.

While racking up a 3-0 record in the round robin portion of the tournament, Reed sported a belt buckle emblazoned with the image of himself making a shushing gesture.

The buckle no doubt references the controversial moment when he made the same gesture at the home fans during the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles following a crucial putt. You can watch a clip of it below.

The incident enraged the European fans in attendance and solidified Reed's reputation in the golf world.

Despite his solid start to the tournament, Reed was knocked out during the round of 16, suffering a loss to Dustin Johnson, 3 and 2.
