From Golf Course to Farm: British Open Winner Brian Harman’s Post-Victory Plans on His New Tractor

Brian Harman secured a dominant victory at the British Open, winning by six shots at Royal Liverpool. In his post-round interview, Harman shared his immediate plans after winning his first major championship: heading to his hunting preserve in Georgia and using his brand-new tractor (a Kubota tractor with 105 HP) to cut grass on his land. Harman, known for his love of the outdoors, enjoys spending time hunting, fishing, and working on his property. Despite being an Open champion, Harman remains grounded and finds joy in simple activities like mowing grass on his tractor.

Prior to this win, Harman had shown promise in various big events, including finishing 12th in the 2021 Masters and tying for 6th in the British Open the previous year. He has also performed well at the TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course, securing several top-10 finishes. With 10 top-20 finishes and six top-10 finishes in major championships and The Players, Harman’s recent victory at Royal Liverpool validates his skill and talent.

In another golf news, Kaitlyn Schroeder, the 2022 American Junior Golf Association player of the year, has earned a spot in this week’s LPGA Amundi Evian Championship. Schroeder, who is set to be a redshirt freshman at Alabama, has an impressive record of qualifying for major tournaments. She previously played in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur and is now making her LPGA debut.

Jon Rahm, the Masters champion, might not have won the British Open, but he extended his streak of making the cut in major championships to 16 in a row. This is the fourth consecutive year that Rahm has made the cut in every major, dating back to the 2019 PGA Championship. He has consistently finished among the top-10 in these events, further showcasing his consistency and skill.

In the PGA TOUR, the upcoming 3M Championship at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minn., features a $7.8 million purse and will see notable players like Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Cameron Young, and Hideki Matsuyama compete. Finau is the defending champion, and the top-70 players in points after the Wyndham Championship will advance to the FedEx St. Jude Classic, the first leg of the three-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs. Players like Thomas, Horschel, and Woodland are hoping to improve their positions to make the cut for the playoffs.
