If you’re not rooting for Brandon Matthews next week, can you even call yourself a Philly guy? This is a true underdog story. The guy has been gutting it out on the Web.com, Korn Ferry, and Latinoamerica Tours for the last six years. Grinding through injuries and swing changes after having one of the most decorated careers in Temple history. He’s an A+ dude, too. You might remember the story of a fan with down syndrome making a loud noise during a golfer’s backswing during the playoff of a tournament to get into the Open. That was Matthews. Instead of condemning the patron he found out the guy had down syndrome and checked on him to make sure he was ok. The whole moment made SVPs “One Big Thing” segment:
Brandon Matthews was visibly upset when someone yelled during a missed putt, knocking him out of contention for a spot in The Open.
When he found out the fan has Down syndrome and lost control of his emotions, Matthews only cared about one thing — making sure he was OK 👏 pic.twitter.com/FHbyiUBbvP
