‘Just hard’ day 20 leaves Rory unable to close the distance.Innocent Uggetti Fowler made a two-putt for par on the fifteenth hole. To keep the score at 1 in the game, Brian Harman had to make an 8-footer. He holed out the putt. Harman recognized Fowler and Oklahoma State when he turned around.
Coach Mike McGraw of the Oklahoma State Cowboys had to cross the green again to get the pin because they were already heading toward the 16th tee box.

Harman said to Haack as he left the 15th green, “That just fries me. I’m about to slap his behind.

On the 16th hole, both players made birdie putts that were outside of 15 feet. Harman made another birdie on the 17th hole, but Fowler’s attempt missed the mark. Fowler hammered his approach shot to approximately 30 feet on the 18th hole. Harman’s shot came down 8 feet short of the hole. Harman made his for a third straight birdie to win the match after Fowler missed his attempt.

PGA Tour player Harris English commented, “That was one of the best matches I’ve ever seen.”

one of Brian Harman’s Georgia teammates. “I wish someone had a video of it or that it had been on TV. He discovered what it was that made him angry, and an irate Brian Harman is not someone you want to mess with on the golf field.

Brian Harman Inspiration From an Unexpected Source

Despite the fact that Harman’s victory in the 151st Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club on Sunday may have astounded the golfing community, Haack, English, and others who have known him since his junior golf and college days have been waiting for him to achieve a significant victory.

Brian Harman won the Claret Jug by 6 shots, which equaled for the second-largest margin of victory by an American golfer in the illustrious competition’s history. They definitely didn’t expect him to shoot 13 under overall. At St. Andrews in Scotland in 2000, Tiger Woods triumphed by 8 strokes.

Haack praised Harman by saying, “He had such a great pedigree.” He was a fantastic player and very competitive at all times. However, I believe that the one thing he has failed to accomplish is just winning more often than he would have wanted. With all those top-10 finishes, he has unquestionably elevated his position.

“This is more of what I had anticipated seeing. I believe that as he’s grown older and wiser, 
He is undoubtedly playing more shrewdly, and he seems to have a solid strategy the entire week.

Brian Harman received the inspiration he required during the third round on Saturday from an English fan. The man informed Harman, “Harman, you don’t have the stones for this,” after Harman bogeyed two of the opening four holes.

Harman said, “That was helpful.

He made bogeys on two of the opening five holes of Sunday’s final round, cutting his lead to three. But after that, he added two more birdies on the back nine and recorded back-to-back birdies.

PGA Tour player J.T. Poston remarked, “He’s always had a chip on his shoulder, without a doubt.” “That’s what gives him his value. He simply goes outside and declares, “I don’t give a damn how I’m going to do it.however, I’m going to defeat you.”

Harman, 36, joins Phil Mickelson (2013) and Bob Charles (1963) as the only other left-handed winners of The Open.

Georgia’s Golfing Culture: Masters and Unparalleled Passion

Harman’s childhood desire was to take home a green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club rather than winning The Open while growing up on a golf club in Savannah, Georgia.

In Georgia, “you grow up, it’s all the Masters,” Harman said. “It’s closeness. But when I arrived, I thought, “Wow, man, this is unbelievable.” The fans are amazing. Here, golf is understood by all. It was a pure joy to play.

“Managing it has been challenging. I believe someone said that I have had more top-10s since 2017 than anyone else, so there are many occasions when you finish and say, “Damn it, man, I had that one.” For whatever reason, that simply didn’t happen. I’m not sure why it happened this week, but I’m grateful that it did.
