The star made it to 12 under par after an impressive first three rounds.

And Cameron Young is among his closest challengers at seven.

Harman stormed to a 65-shot lead in the second round and then kept his nerve on Saturday despite a lead from Masters champion John Rahm.

The Spaniard is just one shot behind Young after a bogey-free 63.

But while it promised to be a suspenseful ending in the rainy Northwest, fans smiled earlier at a photo of Harman.

journalist Kyle Porter Kicking things off was sharing the screenshot of him carrying an umbrella with a set of gloves and a towel hanging from the inside.

He captioned it, “Brian Harman runs a pro shop under his roof.”

And golf fans absolutely loved it as it was shared multiple times on social media.


A fan reacted to the shot with: “Golf gloves! Get your golf gloves here!!”

“I have to say he’s prepared,” said one onlooker, while another added, “I don’t play much in the rain but that’s a great idea.”

Another commented, “A hunter is always prepared for the conditions.”

“Preparation, there’s no harm,” said another.
