Brian Harman: First player since 2006 to make two aces in PGA Tour round


On Sunday at The Barclays, Brian Harman became the third player in PGA Tour history to make two aces in a single round.

Harman had a pair of 1s on the card as part of a final-round, 2-under 68 to close out The Barclays at Plainfield Country Club in Edison, N.J..

The 2014 John Deere Classic winner used a 7-iron to ace the third hole from 183 yards for his first-ever ace in competition. Caddie Scott Tway told his man that aces tend to come in bunches.

"I was like, 'Yeah, whatever,'" Harman joked after the round.

At the 218-yard 14th, Harman pulled 4-hybrid and his tee shot landed just a few feet right and short of the hole location, rolling right in for his second ace of the day.

With the second hole-in-one, Harman became the first player with two holes-in-one in a PGA Tour round since Yusaku Miyazato at the 2006 Barracuda Championship. Bill Whedon is the only other player to make a pair of aces in a single PGA Tour round, doing so as an amateur at the 1955 Insurance City Open.

Harman was just a few feet away from setting another PGA Tour record for eagles in a round. He nearly chipped in for eagle at the 601-yard par-5 16th, then stuck his 173-yard approach into the 17th to a foot. Both wound up going down as birdies.
