Brian Harman could not believe his luck when he joined an exclusive group of players to shoot two holes-in-one at the same tournament.

Harman holed both of his aces in his final round at The Barclays, helping him to a tied-for-30th result, although most of his great scoring was offset by five bogeys as he finished with a two-under 68.

A seven-iron on the third at Plainfield Country Club already made his day memorable, but his four-iron on 14 made it legendary.

Yusaku Miyazato (2006) and Bill Whedon (1955) are the only others to record multiple aces at the same event.

After hitting the 40th and 41st aces of the PGA Tour season, Harman said he would have preferred to be contending for a trophy - winning his only title in the US at the John Deere Classic last year.

"I'd trade both of them to be in contention. That was pretty wild," Harman told a news conference.

"First one, you know, I looked at my caddie, I said, 'That's my first one out there'.

"He's like, 'Well, they come in bunches'.

"I was like, 'Yeah, whatever'.

"Both of them were good shots. They felt going right in there."

After his history-making eagles on the par-threes, Harman also snared another on the par-five 16th - the 28-year-old trying his luck after lightning struck twice.

"I was aiming low those last few [holes]," he said.

"It was a tough week. I really had been struggling. This is a hard golf course.

"It was getting better throughout the week. It's good to at least get it for a couple."

Harman was well aware of the last time he was on ESPN's famous highlights reel, and he will surely earn a berth again for his latest feat.

"I actually had a SportsCenter Top 10 in Louisiana. It was an eight-iron that hit dead centre on number nine. I don't know how it missed," he reflected.
