Matt Harmon loses out on PGA Tour card in agonising fashion

Golf is a cruel game. And, at times, a painfully unforgiving one.

At the Tour Championship, Matt Harmon was on the receiving end of such cruelty. The top 25 from the Tour Finals progress to earn their PGA Tour cards for the following season. Harmon started the week just outside that bracket in 29th, and was feeling pretty good.

However, that solid performance through the previous three rounds saw him T16 and projected to creep inside that mark. It even looked good through 16 holes of the final round at Atlantic Beach CC as he was sitting nicely on two-under-par.

Then disaster struck. Harmon missed a 3ft putt for birdie on the 17th to climb to three-under, and that trend continued to the final hole, only this time he three-putted for bogey and subsequently fell out of the top 25.

After that above clip ended, Harmon snapped his putter in two before storming to the scoring area.
