Matthews Withdraws From Web.com Event

May 11, 2019

Brandon Matthews withdrew from the second round of the KC Golf Classic on Friday, cutting his weekend short at the Web.com Tour event. Matthews, 24, of Dupont, had a poor start with Thursday’s first round after shooting a 6-over-par 78. Friday was no better. Matthews made a triple bogey on the first hole Friday. He went par-par-double bogey-par and then, according to the online leaderboard, withdrew before completing the sixth hole. Matthews was one of four players who withdrew from the tournament, while most failed to make the cut of 2 over. Luke Guthrie enters today with a two-stroke lead at the tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. He’s at 8-under 136. The Web.com Tour continues next weekend during the Knoxville Open in Tennessee.
