Brian Harman put on a clinic on Sunday at Royal Liverpool, shooting a final-round 68 to win the 151st British Open by five strokes. Harman's victory was his first major championship, and it came in impressive fashion. He led wire-to-wire, never relinquishing his grip on the lead.
Harman's game was on point all week. He hit the ball well off the tee, and his putting was lights-out. He made 16 birdies over the four rounds, and he only had two bogeys. His final-round 68 was the low round of the day, and it gave him a winning score of 12-under-par 272.
Harman's victory was a surprise to some, but it was not a complete shock. He has been a consistent performer on the PGA Tour for years, and he has had several close calls at winning majors. This week, he finally put it all together and got the job done.
Harman's victory is a major boost for his career. He is now a major champion, and he has a lot of confidence going forward. He is also in line for a big payday, as the winner of the British Open receives a $3 million check.
