It has been a long time since two former Savannah prep golf standouts have met in a big tournament, but now it will happen on a bigger stage this weekend. They are Savannah Christian and the University of Georgia alumni Brian Harman and Savannah Country Day and the University of South Carolina alumni Mark Silvers. In 2008, they both appeared at the U.S. Amateur at North Carolina's Pinehurst Resort Country Club.
The two PGA golfers will cross paths this weekend at the PGA's Honda Classic right down I-95 in Palm Beach Florida. Here is the Honda Classic information if you want to follow these guys. You might just catch them on the Golf Channel and on the national golf broadcast on NBC.
