phan52, you and I know who Brandon is because we are from Philly, but people using the msg. board who reside in Oklahoma, Florida, or California, let alone Australia or England, do not. In that sense, he is unknown. In our Golf Assoc of Philadelphia world, of course he is well known.
Additionally, I'm not sure I'd call him one of the favorites either. He isn't ranked in the top 200 among world amateurs. He's not even the highest ranked player from Pennsylvania. That honor belongs to Nathan Smith. I'm rooting for him, though.
