Monday was an interesting day for the Bryan family.
The youngest, Wesley, is a PGA Tour winner — 2017 RBC Heritage — and has made 14 starts this season. His brother, George, on the other hand, plays most of his golf on YouTube these days.
That isn’t to say he isn’t a stick, because he absolutely is. He carries a +6 handicap.
And after shooting a bogey-free 4-under 67 at a pre-qualifying event at Bermuda Run Country Club in Bermuda Run, North Carolina, on July 27th, George earned himself a spot in the Wyndham Championship Monday qualifier.
Both Bryan brothers shot 5 under at Bermuda Run Monday, putting themselves in a six-for-three playoff.
Unfortunately, Wesley made it out of the playoff and into the Wyndham field while George did not.

“Well, one of us had to win and one of us had to lose. Well, I guess theoretically, both could have won, both could have lost, six-for-three playoff. Unfortunately, George did not make it through, fortunately, I did make it through. Sorry, George, still love you, but I’m always going to try to beat you until the day I die. In everything,” Wesley said on his Instagram Monday.
Although this one didn’t fall George’s way, he recently announced he signed up for PGA Tour Q-School. Through the program, he has a chance to earn a Tour card.
In four previous appearances at the Wyndham, Wesley has missed three cuts.
