On Sunday, July 23, 2023, Brian Harman became the winner of the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.
“Harman took the lead on Friday morning with the second of four straight birdies early in the second round. He never trailed over the final 51 holes, leading by five shots after the second round and five shots after the third round” (via Npr.org). Harman is the 10th-ranked player in the world, and finished with a 1-under 70 in the final round on Sunday to win the Claret Jug.
“It’s been exciting to follow his progress and cheer him on” said Ryan Legg, CEO of MegaCorp. “He’s truly a great guy, and we are honored that Harm chose us to be one of his sponsors. We’re so proud of him and his amazing accomplishment of winning The Open. Brian’s dedication, skill, and unwavering determination have undoubtedly led him to this well-deserved win.”
MegaCorp has been a sponsor of Harman since 2018. Click here to see his most recent visit to our Headquarters in Wilmington, NC.
Along with the win came a lot of media exposure for MegaCorp, some of it pretty entertaining:
“Obviously they assemble sharks with laser beams attached to their heads”
“Try to take over small, quaint, ski towns in Hallmark movies”
Golf.com published a great article, featuring our Director of Marketing, Katie Braskett.
MegaCorp was also a topic of conversation when Barstool Sports’ podcast “Pardon My Take” (which averages between 750,000 and 1.5 million listeners per episode) aired the Monday after The Open. You can listen to that full episode here.
Later, Harman joined “Pardon My Take” to chat about his win. “They’re awesome, man” said Harman about MegaCorp. “They are so much fun!” When talking about the Mega Swag that was sent to them, the hosts expressed surprise at how quickly they received it, and Harman quipped: “That’s what they do, man! They just make stuff appear. You need something, it’s just *finger snap* – THERE.”

All of our MegaCorp team members were excited to cheer Harman on over the weekend. We hosted a watch party at our HQ, and our Cincinnati office also got into the spirit, creating a banner congratulating Harman on his win. We’re looking forward to continuing to cheer Brian on as he continues to make these amazing strides in the world of golf. Let’s go Harm!
