Putnam, who won his first PGA TOUR event the Barracuda Championship on August 5 – the same day that voting began for the MetLife MatchUp – kept the good vibes going by calling on a large social media network to encourage fans to vote for him and his support for the College Golf Fellowship.

“I can't thank my fans and fellow supporters of the College Golf Fellowship enough for all that they've done,” said Putnam. “It has been an amazing month. I not only fulfilled a dream by winning my first PGA TOUR event at the Barracuda Championship, but I was able to donate $750,000 to a charity that is very dear to me by winning the MetLife MatchUp. I look forward to the 2019 MetLife MatchUp and trying to qualify again.”

The MetLife MatchUp is a season-long competition spanning 13 select PGA TOUR events. At each of those tournaments, it pitted two players against one another in a fan vote to determine who successfully navigated a tough situation on the golf course. A player was crowned at each designated tournament, scoring $20,000 for his charity of choice while advancing to the final vote. The contest culminated with fans voting the grand prize winner and donating $750,000 to his chosen charity.
