Brian Harman seems like he’s going to win the Travelers Championship one of these days.

In 12 starts at TPC River Highlands, Harman’s made 11 cuts with six top-10s. The high water mark came last year when the former Georgia Bulldog posted 66-66-64-64 for T-2nd. Harman’s 20-under total would have won or gotten him into a playoff every other year since 2009.

Even then, he never really threatened to win given Keegan Bradley’s three-shot victory that was a wider margin at times on Sunday.

Harman’s solid play here was a precursor to his Open Championship win a month later.

At the 2023 Travelers, Harman was sixth in the field in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green (3.435) and 11th in SG: Putting (5.028). This was his third straight top-10 and fifth in the last six visits.

The 37-year-old is coming off a T-21st finish last week at the U.S. Open. Not a bad result at a 7,500-yard course. He’ll be happy to come to Connecticut at a sub-7,000-yard layout.

This was Harman’s third top-26 finish in his last four starts.

On the season, Harman is 21st on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Total (.843). His putter is his main weapon, ranking 24th in SG: Putting (.456).

He’s been solid on approaches from 150-175 yards, ranking 17th (26’4”).

Harman tends to have good course management, which is crucial at the Travelers. Knowing where to go for the gusto and where to play it safe can dictate your outcome.

“I just think it's really a risk-reward golf course,” Harman was transcribed by ASAP Sports in 2018. “You can take on as much as you want, but you run the risk -- because it's really easy to make bogeys here.”
