Reigning Open champion Brian Harman has revealed Lucas Glover's back-to-back wins reduced him to tears.
The American, 36, claimed after the opening round of the BMW Championship on the PGA Tour that watching his pal rack up two sensational victories reminded him of Andy Dufresne's character in The Drawshank Redemption.
"Crawling through the river and coming out clean the other side," Harman joked after acknowledging the problems Glover has had - particularly fighting the putting yips - over the years.
That being said, he still wants Glover to have a bit more respect. Harman told a pool of reporters that seeing his pal being described as a journeyman in a recent article was a 'ridiculous thing to say'.

So what brought Harman to tears?
It's not just Glover's pals who have been singing his praises.
Before teeing it up at Olympia Fields, Glover said he was particularly grateful for a chat he had during the 2022 3M Open with England's Matt Wallace.
The two aren't particularly close, yet Wallace gave credit where credit was due over his new and improved putting technique.
Harman tied for the early lead with Rory McIlroy at the BMW Championship.
Glover was five strokes behind his pal.
