Without a win or even a runner-up last season, Brian Harman flew under the radar a bit. The veteran left-hander still played some pretty impressive golf to advance all the way to the Tour Championship.

Harman didn’t do much in fall 2021, but he hit the ground running when the calendar flipped to 2022. He finished T-3rd at The American Express, which tied for his best result along with T-3rd at the first FedEx Cup Playoffs event, the FedEx-St. Jude Championship.

Harman also took T-6th at The Open Championship and made the cut in three of four majors.

The 35-year-old ranked 44th on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained per round (.608). The former Georgia Bulldog is good at keeping it in play and limiting mistakes. He came in at 21st in driving accuracy (66.56%) and 29th in scoring average (70.195).

He’s a grinder who gets the most out of his game, something DFS players can appreciate.

Harman is making his eighth appearance at the Shriners Children’s Open. He made seven cuts in a row at TPC Summerlin until his streak came to an end by one shot after 68-70 last year wasn’t quite enough to make the weekend.

Harman finished in the top 20 his three previous trips, including a personal best T-13th (65-63-67-72) in 2020. He was in third place through 54 holes. Harman ranked third in the field in total strokes gained putting (7.044) and T-15th in putts per green in regulation (1.655).

“…this course, you can make birdies in you’re in position, but if you get out of position, you can really make some high scores,” Harman was transcribed by ASAP Sports in 2016.
