    I don't now where Brian got his 300 yard drives and great approaches but I like it. He does not spend an hour reading a putt, he just goes bout business.

  2. Carter says:

    Harman absolutely crushing it. One more round!

  3. Joseph Boza says:

    LOL Rick was so chirper after 15 hours of Golf (30 in total), you can tell the long week as gotten to Patrick. Some of the media is throwning a fit cause the big boys are suffering or they dont give a damn. The pissing contest big boys and Jay Monahan is really there especially with the playoffs going from 125-70. Justin doesnt care. He has gotten way too comfortable thinking he will make the playoffs every season. I think the media loves seeing the same names every week. Brian Harman shows that golf is a funny sport. I think if Brian Harman play 36 holes of boring golf this will be his.

  4. Harman’s +4 in the final round in Scotland last week, gives us some hope that its not over yet.

  5. Harman has these pop rounds. Mark my words. He will not win. Great job on his part , but I think the winner is Straka, Fleetwood, Young.

  6. Yoof Yoof says:

    Talking crap…-3&-6 for the win

  7. Intro is the whitest thing I’ve ever heard lol

  8. Harman gets to -14, likely for the win.

  9. Tony 1 says:

    Love the show, it's better with Patrick in it.

  10. Tony 1 says:

    I think Patrick nails it when he says "If Harman stays out of the bunkers he wins it"

  11. Tony 1 says:

    Paul Lawrie was 10 back on the final day at Carnoustie when he won it.

    Patrick dont forget that just because Harman isnt Brooks, Tiger, Kymer, ect.. is being a little half glass full because sure Harman doesnt have NOWHERE close to the resume or talent of those mentioned however He has a very nice Majors standings career (especially The Open) i also think without Rahm, Scheffler ect.. right down his backside will help with intimidation. (Rory being the closest but still a ways back)

  13. CMey3111 says:

    I know My Opinion is boring but im looking at No “Harm”-en -No “Fowl”ler and its Okay if You are a Fan to the fullest. I am being really optimistic with the lean more to the “Tame” weekend outcome with just a couple of movers and the handful of shakers with NOT the weather leaderboard shake up that a lot of those who want or atleast think will happen. I think it will tighten up but will stick with the most recent Major Outcomes of late with atleast going into the weekend with a 5 stroke lead which means Harmen holds off and gets it done! By One or Two.

  14. If the wind switches and there's rain all day then it's basically like a different tournament, I think the leaderboard will look completely different come Sunday down the stretch, anyone who made the cut is still in with a shout if they put 2 great rounds together in tricky conditions

  15. Jay D says:

    Rory is toast! Sorry Pat!

  16. Patrick, we know you love Rory. Keep it in your pants brother

  17. Patrick’s tweets are underrated

  18. Brian Harman absolutely brilliant round.

    Love it when the underdog makes a mockery of of all the betting odds and pundit picks……
