Brian Harman Was in No Mood to Answer Questions After Late-Round Struggles

Harman dropped three shots down the stretch Thursday to finish up with a one-under 70.

Brian Harman was cruising to a nice opening round at the RBC Heritage on Thursday afternoon but his good vibes were ruined by a bogey on No. 17 and a double-bogey on No. 18, which brought him from 4-under to just 1-under. With conditions facilitating excellent scoring, the late stumble put him behind the eight ball as he fights for positioning headed into the weekend at the event, which doesn't have a cut.

Harman, the reigning Open champion, fulfilled his post-round media obligations by fielding four questions over 45 seconds, saying 43 words in response, and getting the heck out of there as quickly as possible.

Credit where it's due. If someone asks you if you can walk them through the hole that ruined everything you can simply say no and walk away. That's something weekend duffers can use when they return home and are in a foul mood.

The unorthodox interview did little to spark Harman who is one-over in his second round at the moment and nine shots off the lead.
