Brian is a McKeesport, PA native and Phoenix-based professional golfer who wears Western Pennsylvania on his sleeve, actually his arm.
“Everybody who knows me knows I’m all about Pittsburgh and home,” Cooper said. “It’s evident with the tattoo of the whole city.” (He had his "terrible towel" at his wedding.)

"It was really cool, we sat where President or Vice President would sit."
