Brian Harman isn’t supposed to hit it far enough to compete at Erin Hills. Or so he’s been told. He’s too short, too small. As he walks to the first tee box as the leader of the 117th U.S. Open on Sunday afternoon, they’ll come up with more reasons as to why he can’t get it done at the end of the day. Too small. Too short. Too windy for a guy who can’t carry it as far as Justin Thomas or Brooks Koepka. Not enough experience in major championships. Brian Harman doesn’t have a chance, they’ll say.
Heck, I’m guilty of this myself. Just yesterday I brushed Harman’s chances aside as we rolled into the weekend. I was wrong. Just as Brian Harman would prefer.
That’s be most of Harman’s life — especially his career in golf. At a diminutive 5’7 and far from one of the tour’s biggest hitters, Harman’s perhaps best known as one of the Tour’s more self-confident players, carrying a chip on his shoulder the size of Georgia. You’d end up that way too if such a chasm existed between your life’s work and the perception of it.
Despite his size, Harman’s been a star since his amateur days. He’s won a USGA championship before, 14 years ago at the 2003 U.S.
