There will be some SEC pride on the line on the final day of the 2017 U.S. Open.
Two former conference golfers – Brian Harman of Georgia and Justin Thomas of Alabama – will be in the final pairing of the last round on Sunday at Erin Hills in Hartford, Wis.
Harman is the overall leader after finishing the first three rounds at -12, while Thomas comes in with a lot of momentum. The former Haskins Award winner, given to the top collegiate golf player each year, fired the lowest round to par in U.S. Open history with a 63 on Saturday, making him -9 on the day.
Both players are looking for their first major major championship. Harman’s best finish in one of the four majors is tied for 26th at the 2014 Open Championship, while Thomas finished tied for 18th at the 2015 PGA Championship.
