Meet Kelly Van Slyke, she is the girlfriend of 27-year-old golfer Brian Harman. Her boyfriend just qualified for the British Open following his win at the 2014 John Deere Classic!
Harman is a first time winner but he shone Sunday afternoon in Illinois. He held on over the final 18 holes to earn a spot in the Open Championship. It is now officially British Open week how do you think he will do?
His lovely girl, Kelly will sure be cheering for her man.
Kelly and her man reside in Sea Island, Georgia. They have been dating for nearly two years and became engaged recently. Last April an ecstatic Harman tweeted, “She said yes!!” with two exclamation points. The couple met in San Diego.
Ever the romantic and outdoorsman, Harman found a unique way to pop the question.
“She’s been doing some turkey hunting with me,” he said. “I taped the ring on the inside pocket of some (of her new) camouflage pants. I videotaped the whole thing, her trying on the pants and finding the ring. It was awesome.”

Harman is sure in a good place right now, he feels his golf game is in “good shape” and the numbers back him up. He had made 10 cuts in 14 events entered in the 2013-14 campaign and his goal is to contend in every tournament and put himself in position to win; he said back in April and it looks like that is exactly what he is doing!
Without a doubt Kelly and Harman are having a great year so far!
