Brian Harman throws best first pitch in golf history at Atlanta Braves game, continues scorching hot streak

August 23, 2023

About a month ago, Brian Harman—a little lefty from Georgia that only DFS gurus ever really paid attention to—hoisted the Claret Jug at Royal Liverpool after one of the most dominant major performances in recent memory. He proved he was a true mudder at Hoylake, outlasting sloppy conditions and sloppier galleries enroute to the biggest win of his career.

That alone would be enough to make anyone’s year, but Harman wasn’t done there. He’s since been named to the 2023 U.S. Ryder Cup team, currently sits 8th in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the Tour Championship and was even seen throwing some downright nasty junk (this is a compliment in baseball) at the Atlanta Braves game on Tuesday night. Check it out.

It’s an extremely low bar, but we’re going to go out on a limb and call this the best first pitch in golf history. Watch how this thing snaps down and away at the last second. Filthy. You know he’s coming up and in for some sweet chin music on the next one.

The best part of all this is Harman swings a golf club lefty and pitches righty. Apparently the guy can do it all. Does that include a comeback for the ages this week at East Lake? He’ll tee off on Thursday six shots back of leader Scottie Scheffler. That’s a pretty big mountain to climb, but given the year he’s having (and the smoke he’s throwing on the mound), we wouldn’t rule it out.
