After missing a short birdie putt that lost him the third playoff hole at Open de Argentina over the weekend, PGA Tour golfer Brandon Matthews was visibly upset. What made matters worse was that the miss came as a fan yelled during his backswing–a no-no in golf when it comes to etiquette.
Matthews was understandably irate after the missed putt and with the yelling by the fan. He turned around and yelled at the crowd surrounding the green.
The missed putt cost Matthews a spot on The Open Championship, and for a competitor at that level, it was a heartbreaking ending.
It was a touching moment that caught the attention of many in sports media–including Scott Van Pelt.
