Harman finished with a round of 68, good for a 30th-place tie but well behind Barclays champion Jason Day. Afterwards, Harman joked about the tradition in which a golfer who hits a hole-in-one buys everyone drinks.
“It was a bad, bad day to do it,” Harman laughed (via ESPN). “All of us are going into [New York City] tonight. I would have much rather had it yesterday.”
Remarkably, in his fourth full season on the PGA Tour, Harman had never before hit a hole-in-one, that in a span of 1,567 par-3 holes (per ESPN Stats & Info). But that all changed at the 184-yard third hole, where his 7-iron proved true.
11 holes later, Harman arrived at the 220-yard 14th. After watching the ball fly off his 4-iron hybrid, Harman said (via the Associated Press), “Make it two.” Here is what that looked like:
Brian Harman had an ace at No. 3 today. He just made another one at No. 14. #FedExCup http://t.co/OB9bMXItVx— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) August 30, 2015
Harman said he was “shocked” at his own feat. As far as buying drinks went, he apparently did not let anyone down, least of the reporters covering the tournament.
