Patrick Reed is making waves in the golfing world right now.

Over the weekend the Texas native became the youngest winner of a World Golf Championship.

And after beating off a strong field, and challenging conditions, to win the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Doral on Sunday Reed spoke confidently about his status in the game:

"I've worked so hard, won a lot of junior career, did great things in amateur career and now I have three wins on the PGA Tour.

"I just don't see a lot of guys that have done that besides from Tigers Woods of course and all the legends of the game," he told reporters.

Reed's weekend victory was his third PGA Tour title in the last eight months, and in beating Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson by one stroke he became on the fifth golfer ever to win three titles before turning 24-years old.

The only others to have achieved the feet are Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory Mcllroy and Sergio Garcia.

And he firmly believes he deservers to be talked about alongside the world's best:

"I believe in myself, especially with how hard I've worked, I'm one of the top five players in the world.

"To come out in a field like this and hold on wire to wire, I feel like I've proven myself."

It remains to be seen whether the prodigious young talent can maintain his form and go on to become one of the sport's biggest stars in years to come but he certainly doesn't lack the confidence required of an elite sportsman.
