Tony Finau is not only one of the longest players on the PGA Tour, he’s also one of the nicest.
During the third round of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, one of Finau’s shots hit a young lady in the head and bounced back into play. The young lady was bloodied and needed stitches but was thankfully not seriously injured.
In situations like this it’s customary for a player to give the injured fan a signed ball or glove – or as Phil Mickelson likes to handle the situation, a glove full of money. Tony Finau decided to handle the situation a little differently. As we found out in the below Instagram post from the injured woman, Finau showed up at her front door with flowers, chocolates and a get well soon card. A true class act by the recent PGA Tour winner.
Fianu is not in position to win the golf tournament, but in our eyes he’s already won this week.
Here’s Elisa’s caption: “This is Tony Finau. Yesterday at the Colonial golf tournament, his golf ball bounced off my head and went back into play. Luckily I am ok and all I needed was a few stitches. In a very stand up gesture, he showed up at my door step with flowers, chocolates, a get well soon card, and he stayed and talked with us for a bit. @tonyfinaugolf I wish you the best of luck in the tour going forward! -Signed, your new favorite fan, Elisa#iforgiveyou #prettyawesomestory#FOOOOREE #ouch #classact”
