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. Apr 4 - 6:23 AM

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.

Harman will play out of the third-to-last threesome again in Round 4 with defender Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele.

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.

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.

Second-round leader and World No. 23 Brian Harman back-pedaled with an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 72-hole total of 15-under 265, down two spots into a three-way T4, two swings short of a two-man playoff involving James Hahn and eventual champ Patton Kizzire. UPDATE: Harman bump three places to a career-high 20th in OWGR and two spots to 7th in the FedExCup standings.

The 30-year-old posts his fifth straight top 10 to open the season, fourth top 5 and third consecutive, but does drop to 0-for-3 when the 36-hole leader/co-leader. It's his sixth cash at the Sony in seven tries, fourth top 25 and first top 10, supplanting a pair of T13s in 2015 and 2016. After kicking off in 64-63-68, the Georgia alum began T2 (with Kizzire), one shy of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 1.604 strokes around-the-green. The Georgian ate double bogey-6 at No. 6, turned level after eagle-3 at 9 (from 17'8"), and then traded bogey-5s at 13 (3-putt from 52'10") and 16 with birdies at 12 and 18 (7'2"). He posted 1.867 putts per GIR and -0.959 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.

Overnight leader and World No. 23 Brian Harman tacked on a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, dropping one place to T2 on 15-under 195, one back of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge, who shot 64.

After kicking off in 64-63, the 30-year-old began with a three-shot lead over five players, including Hoge.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 23 Brian Harman fired a day-low 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 13-under 127, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead by three over 18-hole co-leader Zach Johnson. UPDATE: With play completed, Harman leads five players by three shots. This is his third 36-hole lead/co-lead in 190 career starts, second in as many weeks, and is previously 0-for-2 converting.

Both of Harman's playing partners -- Billy Hurley III and Smylie Kaufman -- look destined to miss the cut, but it obviously was no bother to one of the hottest golfers on the planet. He was a second-round co-leader last week on Maui, eventually finishing solo 3rd, his fourth consecutive top 10 to open the season. Today's lap was a season low for the Georgia alum, his 10th consecutive red number, and has only one over-par round thus far in 2017-18. Making his 190th career start, his 13-under total is his career-best 36-hole score to par, buoyed by a walk-off eagle-3 at nine from 16'9". The 30-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, adding six other par breakers at 10, 11 (17'11"), 18, and 2, 3 (23'5") and 4, smothering a lone bogey-4 at 7. He gained 2.627 strokes tee-to-green and 3.304 on-the-green with 26 total putts.

Brian Harman stayed hot in round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii, piecing together a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to find himself just one off the early pace set by Chris Kirk.

The lefty entered on the heels of four straight top 10s, and he's not slowing down yet. The Georgia Bulldog split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation. It wasn't the ball-striking that led to eight birdies, it was the flat stick. The most notable splash was a 39'7" birdie at the par-4 sixth hole. He also added two more conversions from outside 14 feet. Harman entered the week with a 5-for-6 record at Waialae Country Club. While he does own three top 20s on his Sony Open resume, he is still searching for his first top 10 here in Honolulu.
Jan 11 - 9:51 PM

Second-round co-leader and World No. 27 Brian Harman patched together a 1-under-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, dipping one spot to solo 3rd on 15-under 277, a distant nine in arrears of playing competitor and champion Dustin Johnson, who shot a week-low 65. UPDATE: Harman bumps four places to a career-high 23rd in OWGR.

The 30-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Jan. 19th, records his first top 10 in two appearances after T17 in 2015. It's a season best in his fourth start, fourth straight top 10 and second straight top 5 after T4 at the RSM. After kicking off in 68-68-69, the Georgia alum began in solo 2nd, two shy of leader Johnson. He hit 13 (of 15) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, T1 for the week in GIR at 81.94 percent (59/72), but lost 0.693 strokes around-the-green and 0.123 tee-to-green. The Georgian squared three bogeys at holes 3, 7 (3-putt from 49'5") and 8 (3-putt from 57'6"), slightly outpaced by four circles at 5, 9 (from 15'3"), 15 and 16. He posted a disappointing 1.875 putts per GIR and -1.289 SG: Putting, needing 33 total putts.
