English tour pro Eddie Pepperell went on a rant during the latest instalment of The Chipping Forecast as he dissected Brian Harman's victory at the 151st Open Championship.
Harman lifted the Claret Jug on 23 July, becoming the sixth American to win the Open by six or more shots.
Why we are referencing his margin of victory is important. That nugget of info was pointed out by golf stats guru Justin Ray as the final major of the year played out.
Ray, as he always does, was on hand with some interesting facts throughout the week, putting into perspective how dominant Harman's win was.

Good luck whoever plays against Harman in Rome. He’s gonna do your bloody head in.— Eddie Pepperell (@PepperellEddie) July 23, 2023
It has to be said Harman's win has, on the whole, not been well received by golf fans.
Harman was on the receiving end of some nasty comments and later revealed that spurred him on.
Pepperell reckons there is a failure on behalf of golf broadcast teams and journalists who could have made Harman's victory more captivating at the time.

"I'm just going to have a quick rant myself," Pepperell told Andrew Coltart and Iain Carter on The Chipping Forecast.
