Reed on Wednesday withdrew his original $750 million defamation lawsuit against the Golf Channel and analyst Brandel Chamblee and refiled it in federal court in Jacksonville,

Reed joined several other Golf Channel employees in the lawsuit, including Eamon Lynch, Shane Bacon, and Damon Hack, along with the DP World Tour.

Reed initially filed the lawsuit last month, alleging that Chamblee and the Golf Channel conspired with the PGA Tour and its commissioner to "engage in a pattern.

now 32, said their aim was to "destroy his reputation, create a hateful and hostile work environment for him and with the intention of discrediting his name and achievements".

Reed claims he lost "multi-million dollar sponsorship deals" and was "kicked out" of the PGA Tour. However, Reed retired from the Tour when he retired to the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

Chamblee has been critical of Reed in the past, both for his decision to leave the PGA Tour for LIV Golf and for Reed's fouls or near fouls,

Reed's new lawsuit makes many of the same allegations as the original. He said the defendants "slandered, falsely injured and torturously interfered" with Reed.

Reed won nine times on the PGA Tour, including the 2018 Masters, before retiring. He has appeared in four LIV tournaments since joining the startup in June.
