It’s been an interesting season for this 30-year-old University of Georgia product. Harman missed the cut in his last tournament, which was the Memorial Tournament, posting dual 76s in his first two rounds. So in that sense, he’s not coming into the 2017 U.S. Open red hot.
However, before that stumble, Harman had a win at the Wells Fargo Championship. After winning in North Carolina, Harman was asked how he was able to withstand the pressure of playing the final round.
“Just having a little more belief in myself. Just trusting that I’m pretty good at what I do.”
In addition to his win, Harman had two other top-10 finishes in his last four tournaments. Though, he also finished in a tie for 53rd in the middle of all that at THE PLAYERS Championship.
That typifies Harman’s season. He’s either been darn good or almost falling apart at the seams. In 20 events, he has six missed cuts and five top-10s. Thankfully he’s been more hot than not of late, and he enters the U.S. Open ranked No. 11 in the FedEx Cup Rankings.
It’s worth noting that, in two previous U.S. Open appearances, Harman missed the cut both times. Hopefully he’ll be on the hot side of things this year so he can have a chance to play through the weekend.
