Patrick Reed made a run for the Masters this year but car geeks in the US are more interested in the appearance of what looks like the wrecked remnants of the LIV Golf rebel's $450,000 Masters-themed Porsche 911 on a car salvage website.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS in Masters green even shares the same Vehicle Identity Number (VIN) as the one owned by the 2018 Masters champion.

Popular US car news website,, reported "on a badly mangled and very green Porsche 911 GT2 RS" that appeared on the auction site Copart.

They later reported it could well belong to Reed as the car is listed near Reed's Houston, Texas home, and its specifications and original VIN number match the Copart listing.

The Porsche boasts Masters yellow brake calipers and stitching but it's no secret why it's a write-off with severe damage to the front right bumper, the roof and both sides while the rear bumper is missing.
