Brian Harman fired a -7 under par 63 Friday, at the Sony Open in Hawaii to take a 3 stoke lead over 5 other players.

I mentioned yesterday that this could be a great year for Harmon.

We are seeing more and more super star quality golfers coming out of Sea Island Georgia on St. Simon’s Island.

Zach Johnson is in the large group tied for second place at -10 under par.

Zach started with a 63 and was tied after the first round. The flu he suffered for a week before the tournament surely hasn’t helped this week.

His low round was fantastic but he may be tiring some. -3 under was respectable for round 2 but this course is gettable and if he keeps shooting -3 under par rounds he will move back in the pack.

The Waialae CC is one of the courses that the guys can go low. They need to take advantage of that!!

Brian Harman had a very solid round with only 1 bogey. That came on the par 3 #7 when he hit his first shot in the left bunker and couldn’t get it up and down.

He did make it up with an eagle on #9.

His 325 yard drive was in the fairway and second shot ended up 17′ from the hole.

He drained it for an eagle 3 and was on his way to the 63. I like this young man a lot and hope he gets his Major this year!

It was an exciting time this week for JJ Henry who teed off Thursday for his 500th tournament. JJ is always hanging around and has done well all these years.

Speaking to his former caddy Don Donatello recently he told me there is no nicer guy out there!!!

Unfortunately he missed the cut this week but he will be around for a lot more tournaments this year.

Charles Howell III teed up Thursday for his 503rd start on the PGA Tour. Very impressive.

Charles is a true gentleman and is in a tie for 28th place.

It’s going to be a fun weekend for golf and being in Prime Time hopefully everyone gets a chance to watch. Have a great weekend!
