Brian Harman has the best shot of any player at winning the 2023 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool, but he is not the only former Bulldog with a crack at the final men’s major of 2023.

Sepp Straka is also in the mix at the Open Championship. Straka is at five-under and is tied for fourth place.

The 151st Open Championship will feature a $16.5 million purse. Brian Harman will have a great opportunity to be the winner of the final major of the year and take home $3.0 million.

Brian Harman has a chance to win his first career major. It would be a massive career leap for Harman. What does Harman think of having a chance to win a major?

You’d be foolish not to envision, and I’ve thought about winning majors for my whole entire life. It’s the whole reason I work as hard as I do and why I practice as much as I do and why I sacrifice as much as I do. Tomorrow if that’s going to come to fruition for me, it has to be all about the golf. It has to be executed and just staying in the moment.

Harman has won two career PGA Tour events, but has remained consistent throughout the years. He has made the FedEx Cup playoffs for 12 consecutive years.

Harman is set to tee off in the final round at 9:15 am ET.
