Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman celebrate after winning the QBE Shootout

Naples, Florida - On a rain-soaked Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club at Ritz Carlton

Resort, Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman outlasted the 12 team field at Greg

Norman's QBE Shootout - posting a final round 61 (30 under par - 186 total)

to beat Emiliano Grillo and Graeme McDowell by a single stroke.



Kizzire drained a 15 foot eagle putt on the par 5 seventeenth propelling the

team to victory. Kizzire and Harman grew up playing junior and college golf

against each other. Harman from Savannah, Georgia and Kizzire from Tuscaloosa,

Alabama. Harman was a standout for the Georgis Bulldogs, while Kizzire

played for SEC rival Auburn, now as teammates, they proved to be a formidable

duo. "We knew we needed at least birdie and eagle was a bonus," Kizzire said.

"He had a great iron shot in there close and freed me up, and I hit a good one,

too. We both had looks at it. I putted first and made it. That was huge."
