Brian Harman won the 2023 British Open at Royal Liverpool Golf Club on Sunday, shooting a 1-under 70 in the final round to finish at 13-under 271. Harman won by six strokes over Tom Kim, Sepp Straka, Jason Day, and Jon Rahm.

Harman had been in contention for a major victory for several years, but this was his first time breaking through. He had 29 top-10 finishes since his last win in 2017, the most of any player without a victory in that span.

Harman's victory was a surprise to many, as he was not considered one of the favorites heading into the tournament. However, he played consistently throughout the week, and his putter was especially hot on Sunday. He made several clutch putts down the stretch to keep his lead.

Harman's win is a major breakthrough for his career.

Other Players Who Pushed the Winner Close

In addition to Harman, several other players put up strong performances at the British Open. Tom Kim finished in second place at 7-under 277.

Sepp Straka, Jason Day, and Jon Rahm all finished in a tie for third place at 6-under 278. Straka and Day both had rounds of 69 on Sunday, while Rahm shot a 70.
