Harman's round was one that a local high school basketball coach won't forget.  Brian's caddy, Scotty Tway, became ill from food poisoning and couldn't finish the round.  After the sixth hole, Harman was in need of a caddy.   Rock Island Alleman Catholic High School girls' basketball coach Jay Hatch offered and Harman accepted.  He went on to birdie six more holes and finished the round tied for first at 8-under-par.
