Brian Harman had quite the day at the Open Championship. The Georgia native took to Royal Liverpool Golf Club and made it his own on Friday. Harman will enter the weekend in front with a score of 10-under, and he wowed the golf world during second-round play.

Harman, 36, has never won a major championship. The closest he’s ever finished to the top of the podium came in the 2019 U.S. Open. The former Georgia Bulldog is out to a scorching start now. He dazzled everyone and left the second round with a bang as he eagled to score a 65 for the day.

“Prodigious. Brian Harman signs off with an eagle for a superb 65,” The Open Championship’s Twitter account posted.

Harman scored a 6-under in Friday’s action. He birdied four consecutive holes, 2 through 5, and made par everywhere. Brian’s eagle proved clutch as he hadn’t birdied since the 5th hole and had English golfer Tommy Fleetwood on his tail.

In Round 1, Harman bogeyed on Hole 10 but came away with five birdies. He birdied Hole 18 on Thursday, so Brian has had his fair share of fun at the final hole the last two days.

We’re a weekend away from seeing if he can piece together something special. But thus far, Brian Harman looks like he might take a page out his alma mater’s football team and dominate.

The golf world reacted to the absurd day he had.
