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. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.456 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.295 approaching-the-green. The Georgia alum squared a lone bogey-4 at 11, outpaced by three circles at 5, 10 and 16, each from between six and 19 feet. He posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.171 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. The Georgian will play out of the final threesome in R4 with Hoge and Patton Kizzire. He has two wins, one as 54-hole leader (2014 John Deere) and one come from behind (2017 Wells Fargo).
Jan 13 - 11:10 PM

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.
Jan 7 - 10:39 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 27 Brian Harman tacked on a 4-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions for a 54-hole tally of 14-under 205, down one place to solo 2nd, two shy of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson, who shot 66.

This will be a rematch of sorts with Harman and Johnson after Harman clipped him by one at the 2017 Wells Fargo last May (Eagle Point GC) for his second TOUR title, first come from behind. After kicking off in twin 68s on Maui, he co-led with Marc Leishman, one clear of Johnson. The Georgia alum landed 11 (of 15) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.826 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.564 approaching-the-green. He squared back-to-back bogeys at 11 and 12 (tee ball unplayable), outflanked by a tap-in eagle-3 at five (from 22 inches) and four birdies at Nos. 8, 14, 15 and 18, all from inside of five feet. The Georgian recorded 1.714 putts per GIR and -0.045 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.
Jan 6 - 7:28 PM

Brian Harman was a magician in round two of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, managing to piece together a 5-under-par 35-33=68 to reach 10-under 136, good for a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Marc Leishman.

Harman set the tone early with a 36'2" birdie bomb at the par-4 first hole. He backed it up with a 9'7" par-saving putt at the second. At times the lefty's body language was not synced with his results today. He often seemed frustrated but still managed to circle seven birdies to offset just two bogeys. His most notable trick came at the par-5 15th where it looked like a par would be a good score with bogey not out of the question. Instead, he flung a chip-in straight into the cup for a birdie-4. Harman will now sleep on his second-career 36-hole lead/co-lead. The previous co-lead came at the 2017 U.S. Open where he'd go on to finish T2.
Jan 5 - 10:26 PM

Brian Harman coasted to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-35=68 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader with play starting to wind down for the day.

The smooth lefty striped 10 (of 15) fairways to set up plenty of good approach looks. He capitalized by gaining 2.392 strokes approaching-the-green (15 GIR). From there, he went a perfect 5-for-5 in converting birdie putts from inside 10 feet. That was good enough to gain 1.404 strokes putting on the day. Harman is making his second appearance at this winners-only event, posting a T17 back in 2015. The Georgia Bulldog ended the fall wraparound schedule with three straight top 10s and he's picking up right where he left off.
Jan 4 - 9:15 PM

World No. 27 Brian Harman tossed up a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap on 14-under 268, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T4 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with David Hearn. UPDATE: With play completed, Harman finished T4, seven adrift of overnight leader and champion Austin Cook, and his 65 remained tied for the low round of the day with Hearn and Ryan Armour.

This was the Georgia alum's sixth appearance, fourth cash, second top 25 and second top 10 (T10/2014). It's his third start of the season, third straight top 10 and possibly second top 5 (T5, CJ CUP). After kicking off in 69-68-66, the 30-year-old began T13 on 9-under, one short of the overnight to top 10. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.645 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.218 off-the-tee. The Georgian squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 2, camouflaged by six circles at 5, 7, 10, 13, 15 and 16, three from between 13 and 27 feet. He recorded 1.571 putts per GIR and 3.031 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Brian Harman hung tough to post a third round 2-under-par 35-35=70 and hit the 54-hole mark of the WGC-HSBC Champions on 9-under 207, good for T4 but eight swings back of leader Dustin Johnson at Sheshan International GC.

Two previous appearances in World Golf Championship events had given little hint that Harman would contend this week. In two starts at the Bridgestone Invitational he has finished T65 and T50, but he has enjoyed his Shanghai test. He opened with bogey on Saturday before notching a third birdie of the week at the second. He then smoothed he was to the turn with six pars and another par breaker at No. 7. On the back nine he made eight pars and a birdie at 16. "Course was set up hard and the wind was blowing," he said afterwards. "Hard to stay patient and I had a rough stretch down the back nine. On 12, 13, 14 I had to get it up-and-down from the bunker so I managed my game well."

Brian Harman tacked on a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to his opening 68 and climbed five spots to tied sixth after two rounds of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

At 7-under 137 the left-hander is six behind Dustin Johnson although just two shots off third spot. It was a similar story to round one for Harman today as he played Sheshan International's back nine in even par for the second day running while doing his scoring on the front. Starting from 10th tee, the World No. 28 opened with two pars before swallowing a bogey at 12. After five more pars, he birdied 18 and then picked up further shots at 2, 5 and 6 coming home. While his big-hitting compatriots, DJ and Brooks Koepka, lead the way, Harman is showing there is more than one way to skin a cat on this course. He's second for Driving Accuracy and sixth for greens in regulation.

Making his first start of the season, World No. 32 Brian Harman concocted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to conclude on 5-under 283, up five spots to T5, four adrift of a two-man playoff involving Marc Leishman and overnight co-leader and eventual champ Justin Thomas.

This is the 30-year-old's 22nd top-10 finish in 186 career events (183 pro) and his first since T10 at the John Deere 14 weeks and nine starts ago. After opening with 68-72-72, the Georgia alum began T10 on 4-under, five shy of Thomas. Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.917 putts per GIR. The Georgia native and resident squared two bogeys at Nos. 5 and 13, slightly outpaced by three circles at 1, 3 and 15. He finished last season a career-high 25th in the FedExCup standings, qualifying for the TOUR Championship for the first time. Harman posted 14 top 25s among 22 cashes in 30 starts, seven for top 10s, highlighted by his second TOUR title at the Wells Fargo 14 starts ago.

Brian Harman hopped, skipped, and jumped his way toward a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during the opening round of the Dell Technologies Championship, giving him an early spot inside the top 10.

The lefty opened his day with a three-putt at the par-4 10th, landing his approach shot 75'8" from the pin to do himself no favors. That was the end of the bogeys for Harman today as he pelted 14 greens and then gained 1.955 strokes with the flat stick. In his first three apearances at TPC Boston, Harman posted nothing better than a T65 but since then he's picked up finishes of T12 and T24. It appears that he's found out a proper strategy to take on the brute of a course. Entering the week 13th in the FedExCup standings, the smooth-swinging lefty is easily on pace for the best season of his career.
