Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 28 Brian Harman tossed up a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach 10-under 130, up two places on the day and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Harman leads three players by one shot, his fourth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 203 events, previously 0-for-3 converting.
The 31-year-old improved to 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.114 strokes around-the-green but gaining 0.866 on approach. He squared three bogey-5s at 10, 15 (tee ball in the water) and 17 (3-putt from 16'9"), offset by seven birdies at 13, 14, 16, 1, 4, 6 and 7, four from between 13 and 26 feet. The Georgia alum also canned two par-savers from between six and 11 feet, and saved bogey at 10 from 11'2". He posted 1.538 putts per GIR and 3.728 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This is Harman's third 36-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 17 starts (Sentry TOC, finished 3rd; Sony Open, finished T4). Jun 22 - 12:27 PM

World No. 28 Brian Harman fired a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T4 and one back of clubhouse leader Zach Johnson.

This is the 31-year-old's eighth Travelers with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a solo 3rd in 2015 as 54-hole leader (66-65-65-69). This is his best lap at TPC River Highlands (in 27 rounds), previously 65 three times. The Georgia alum entered this week off a T36 at the U.S. Open and with seven top 10s in 17 starts, which is tied second behind season-leader Dustin Johnson's eight. He mustered seven (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, gaining 2.306 approaching-the-green. Harman squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, saving bogey from 12'3", offset by five birdie-3s at 7, 12, 14, 15 and 18, and eagle-3 at 6 from 32 inches. His split included a long of 21'2" at 15 and a walk-off, chip-in 3 at 18 from 41'5" away. Harman posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.874 SG: Putting with just 23 total putts.

Brian Harman finished runner-up last year at Erin Hills and now he'll head to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club for another appearance at the U.S. Open Championship.

The lefty went into last year's U.S. Open with a win and T7 in his most recent four-start window. This time around, his last top 10 in a stroke-play event came way back in March at the WGC-Mexico Championship. Just sort of floating along since then, Harman did kick things back into gear with a T14 at the Fort Worth Invitational, his most recent start. On the season, he ranks 24th in the FedExCup standings, getting off to a strong fall en route to seven top 10s in 16 starts. While Harman did burst into contention last year at Erin Hills, he has also missed the cut in six of his 11 career major-championship appearances. Gamers should consider Harman a boom-or-bust option this week at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

After opening with 72-67, World No. 26 Brian Harman smoothed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a 54-hole total of 7-under 203, up 33 spots to T9 with play still in progress.

The 31-year-old is the TOUR-leader in top-10 finishes with seven in 15 starts. He checked in bit off the rails with a 74th at Wells Fargo (as defender) and a missed cut at THE PLAYERS. Two of the Georgia's alum last three rounds were in the 80s, but he's back at Colonial CC where he's posted four straight top-30 finishes, including T10 in 2015 and a back-door T7 last year with a closing 65. Harman smothered two bogeys with eight birdies on nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in total birdies with 18. His split included five conversions from between 12 and 25 feet, posting 1.429 putts per GIR, currently No. 1 in the latter thru 54 holes at 1.556.

With Eagle Point Golf Club filling in to host the 2017 Wells Fargo Championship, Brian Harman racked up 18 birdies en route to a one-shot victory. He'll head to Quail Hollow Club this week as he tries to defend his crown on new soil.

Harman went with toe-to-toe with some giants last year at the Wells Fargo Championship. Erasing eight bogeys with 18 birdies, Harman finished strong to knock off big names like Dustin Johnson, Pat Perez, and Jon Rahm, who were the three closest competitors at week's end. Now he'll head back to Quail Hollow Club where Harman is 4-for-5 but just one of those doubling as a top 30. In more recent affairs, Harman is 12-for-13 to kick off the new season. That includes a seven-pack of top 10s to position himself at 18th in the FedExCup race. That puts the lefty on pace to post a new career best in the FEC (current best: 25th last year).

Brian Harman comes home to Augusta National looking to show well in front of the home-state folks in the Masters this week.

Harman attended the University of Georgia, and he was born in Savannah, so he'll have plenty of fans in the gallery pulling for him. He kicked off the season with five consecutive top-10 finishes, and four top-5 showings, including a fourth-place at The RSM Classic in his home state. However, the pressure of the Masters is quite a bit more than those other events. He missed the cut in 2015 at Augusta in his Masters debut, and this will be just his second time playing the course. While a top-30 showing is expected, contending for the win would be a major surprise.

18-seed Brian Harman eliminated 6-seed Rory McIlroy 5-and-3 in round-robin action on Friday and will move on to the Round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The 31-year-old is one of 16 first-timers and the first to advance, eliminating top-group-seed McIlroy in convincing fashion. Harman wins Group 6 with a 2-0-1 record and will face 35-seed and Group 11 winner Bubba Watson on Saturday morning. He never trailed against McIlroy, the 2015 champ, taking a 1 UP lead with par on the third hole and went 2 UP with a concession at 5. The Georgia alum circled his second birdie of the match on 9 to go 3 UP, halved the 10th with birdie, and moved to 4 UP with his third straight birdie at 11 (from 20'11"). McIlroy won one hole, the par-5 12th on concession, now 3 DOWN, but Harman closed him out with birdie-3 at 13 and the match was conceded at the par-4 15th.

Brian Harman stayed patient and carded a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, tossing his name inside the top 10 as play winds down on Thursday afternoon.

The lefty had just two birdie looks from inside 15 feet on the front nine, converting on one from 10'9" at the par-4 ninth to break the drought. That provided some momentum for the back nine where he set up four more scoring chances from inside 15 feet while also draining a 39'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 14th. Playing in his seventh API, this will be the first time Harman has positioned himself inside the top 10 after any round. A very interesting stat considering he does have a trio of back-door top 20s on his API resume.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 21 Brian Harman handed in a 3-under-par 34-34=68 after the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship for a 72-hole total of 13-under 271, up one spot on the live leaderboard to T5, three adrift of clubhouse leader Justin Thomas. UPDATE: Harman finished T5 and maintains his season lead in top-10 finishes with six.

This was the 31-year-old's fourth overall WGC event and second straight top 10 after 8th at the HSBC last fall. He records his seventh top 25 of the season in nine starts and sixth top 10, first since T4 at the Sony four starts ago. After kicking off with 68-67-68, the Georgia alum began T6 on 10-under, three back of 54-hole leader Shubhankar Sharma. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 2.142 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.845 on approach. Harman outpaced two bogey-5s at holes 4 and 16 with five circles at 1, 9, 11, 12 and 14, posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.786 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. For the week, he totaled 19 birdies against six bogeys and is currently 2nd in SG: Putting at 9.059.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 21 Brian Harman crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the WGC-Mexico Championship for a 36-hole total of 7-under 135, up three places on the live leaderboard to T5, four short of clubhouse leader Shubhankar Sharma.

The 31-year-old, making his tournament debut, hit eight (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, currently T1 in GIR on Day 2 at 88.89 percent. He lost 0.618 strokes off-the-tee but gained 1.381 approaching-the-green, and 2.890 SG: Total. The Georgia alum carded five birdies at 11, 15 and 3-5, squaring a lone bogey-5 at 1 after his tee ball got stuck in a tree.

Brian Harman salvaged a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during round one of the WGC-Mexico Championship, tossing his name into the contention on Thursday afternoon, just four off the pace set by Louis Oosthuizen.

The smooth-swinging lefty split nine (of 14) fairways but lost 1.724 strokes approaching-the-green. That was largely due to a water ball at the par-3 seventh, sinking a 49-footer to save bogey and rebuild some momentum. The other highlight of his round came at the par-3 17th where he holed out from 28'4" for his final birdie of the round. With five top 10s already to his credit this season, Harman is back in his comfort zone, currently tied for a share of eighth place as play is halted for a lightning delay.

Brian Harman hits the links at PGA National's Champion Course at The Honda Classic looking to maintain his outstanding accuracy this week.

Harman ranks ninth on the PGA Tour in Driving Accuracy Percentage (71.20), and he is even better in Greens In Regulation (GIR) Percentage, ranking fourth overall. Staying clear of trouble has helped his overall game, as he ranks 14th in Scoring Average (69.879). While his scrambling ability has also been top notch, one of the holes in his game has been on the greens with his putter. If he could clean up his Putts Per Round (29.23), currently ranking him at 111th on tour, he might be quite unstoppable. Even so, Harman has quietly racked up five Top 10 showings through seven events. He has made the cut in three of his past four showings at The Honda Classic, including an 11th-place finish in 2015.

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course and on his 31st birthday, World No. 20 Brian Harman carded a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge, dipping one spot to T10 on 11-under 133, five adrift of 36-hole leader Andrew Landry.

The Georgia alum landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR with 27 total putts. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 14, outpaced by five circles at 13, 15, 1, 3 and 9, all 1-putt varieties and walked off with birdie-3 at the par-4 ninth. The Sea Island, Georgia, resident moves to the Stadium Course for Saturday's third round and is vying for his sixth straight top 10 to open the season.
Jan 19 - 7:41 PM

Brian Harman stayed hot in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, cruising to a 7-under-par 32-33=65 while facing off with La Quinta Country Club.

The Georgia Bulldog entered on the heels of five straight top 10s, dating back to last fall. He's cited a change in ball when asked about his improved play since last Spring. There is no sign of a slow down just yet as he pelted 12 (of 14) fairways en route to 14 greens today. His lone blemish came at the par-4 16th where he found a greenside bunker on approach and couldn't convert the sandie. As long as Harman doesn't over-celebrate his 31st birthday tonight, he should continue his strong play tomorrow as he turns his attention to the Nicklaus Tournament Course.
