Brian Harman won the Wells Fargo Championship after dropping a birdie at the last. The world number 1, Dustin Johnson, finished one shot back in his first tournament since incurring a back injury at the Masters. Also finishing runner-up was Pat Perez, who has been having an excellent season.

Rookie Jon Rahm finished two shots back at 8-under. Rounding out the Top-5 were Smylie Kaufman, Kevin Tway and Seung-Yul Noh – who all finished at 7-under-par.

To wrap up coverage from the Wells Fargo Championship, here are the 3 best shots from the week at Eagle Point Golf Club.

Harman’s Winning Birdie

After a sluggish start to his Sunday, Harman started to kick it in gear at the 5th hole. The Georgian got it to 3-under on the day but after a bogey at 15, he needed to birdie one of the final two holes to tie the lead.

Harman stuck his approach shot from 144-yards to birdie 17 and tie for the lead. Then Harman got to the Par-5 last and hit an excellent recovery shot to give himself a chance at the clubhouse lead and he drilled it.

Wesley Bryan’s Crazy Birdie

Finally a birdie on the PGA Tour that is similar to the common golfer. Bryan, who became famous for his trick shots, used nearly all of the shots in his bag to birdie the Par-5 6th hole.

After hitting a wayward tee shot, Bryan deciding to go driver off the dirt for his second. Bryan yanked his 2nd way left then hit an excellent approach from the pine straw to about 8 feet and went on to sink the birdie – pretty simple game.

Byeong Hun An’s Near Albatross

An nearly holed a walk-off albatross and head into Sunday towards the top of the leaderboard. I still don’t understand how this didn’t fall in after it looked to be rolling with the perfect pace to find the back of the cup.

An went to finish T8 after a Sunday 71.
