After ending a seven-year winless streak on the PGA TOUR, Padraig Harrington will look to make a trophy bid at this week's Masters.
Harrington proved he was no back number by capturing last month's Honda Classic in Florida -- his first victory on American soil since he won the 2008 PGA Championship at Oakland Hills. The Irishman's run of 14 straight appearances at Augusta National came to a halt when he didn't qualify for last year's tournament. Previously, he had posted four top 10s, the most recent a T8 in 2012. His best finishes are a pair of T5s in 2002 and 2008. Apr 7 - 5:38 PM

Padraig Harrington crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

In his first start since emerging with the unlikely victory at PGA National, Harrington missed the cut at Copperhead last week. So, it feels a bit strange to see him have success at Bay Hill if for other reason than we'd like him to rule out a one-week peak. Well, he may be on his way to that very thing. On a track that yielded many low numbers today, the Irishman collected his. He split only seven (of 14) fairways, but went 5-for-5 in scrambling and converted four birdies, two of which ranging 16-19 feet. Harrington signed his card positioned just two swings adrift of the clubhouse lead.

With a par on the second playoff hole, Padraig Harrington clinched victory at The Honda Classic.

This was a gutty effort. Harrington squared one bogey and two doubles en route to an even-par, 38-32=70 in the final round. He also buried five birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-4 11th hole. But his most important conversion was a birdie from 15'9" at the par-5 18th to recover from a 5 at the par-3 17th. He posted 6-under 274 to join Daniel Berger atop the leaderboard. After the duo traded pars at the par-5 18th to open sudden death, the Irishman stuffed his tee ball at the par-3 17th. Berger sprayed his into the water, and then failed to find the cup from the drop zone. Harrington played it safe and tapped his birdie try to with-in kick-in range. This is his sixth PGA TOUR title but first since the 2008 PGA Championship. It exempts him into the Masters, THE PLAYERS and the WGC-Bridgestone Invite. Oddly enough, this is the second straight week that the golfer slotted 297th in OWGR has won on TOUR. James Hahn took last week's Northern Trust, also in a playoff.

Padraig Harrington could only muster a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the third round of The Honda Classic and now trails Ian Poulter by three strokes at 6-under 204.

The 36-hole leader circled two birdies, both from inside of nine feet, but squared three bogeys on his trot around PGA National's Champion Course. Considering that he hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since the 2008 PGA Championship, he handled himself quite well in the heat of contention. He will need a solid effort over his final 18 hole if he is to pick up another trophy.
Mar 1 - 4:07 PM

Padraig Harrington enjoyed a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

Harrington buried seven birdies against three birdies, although he closed bogey-bogey at the par-4 eighth and ninth holes to bring the field back a bit. Overall, he split seven (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. Three of his birdies traveled longer than 10 feet. Needless to say, this is rarefied air for the three-time major champion. He hasn't logged a top 20 on the PGA TOUR since June of 2013. He started this week slotted 297th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Padraig Harrington fashioned a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

This was turn-back-the-clock kind of day for the 43-year-old. He hit only 10 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 second hole. Meanwhile, he found four birdies, including a 19-footer at the par-4 eighth, his penultimate hole of the loop. Harrington remained near the top of the leaderboard with par saves from 10-15 feet at Nos. 4 and 5, and then checked up two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Today's aggregate is his lowest on the PGA TOUR since he signed for the same after his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic in early June of 2014.

Padraig Harrington won the 2005 edition of The Honda Classic and is back in the field this week.

The Irishman's win came at the Country Club at Mirasol, and not at the current venue of PGA National's Champion Course. Considering his current form of five missed cuts in eight PGA TOUR starts, with no top-55 finishes, it wouldn't really matter if he was playing his home course. He is not worthy of a big investment in any fantasy format.
Feb 23 - 8:20 PM

Padraig Harrington turns his attention to TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course for this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The Irishman returns for his third look at the course. After a marvelous T9 debut in 2013, he returned with disappointment, missing the cut his second time through the motions. Harrington arrives having won his latest start overseas at the BANK BRI Indonesia Open but has failed to secure a top 70 in four attempts on the PGA TOUR this season.
Jan 27 - 11:37 AM

Padraig Harrington reached the midpoint of the Sanderson Farms Championship in 5-under-par 70-69=139 and sits five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

David Toms is on top and Lucas Glover is one stroke lower than Harrington. All major champions and all contending at the Country Club of Jackson. The Irishman has hit 26 greens in regulation and poured in eight birdies, four in each round. Three bogeys have done little to shatter his confidence considering he went just 7-for-16 in 2013-14 with only two top-45 finishes. Toms is arguably the only viable fantasy option, so just enjoy these guys turning back the clock for one weekend.

Padraig Harrington kicks off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Irishman finished a distant 188th in the 2013-14 FedExCup standings, thus the need for the exemption. He's made his last four cuts on the European Tour, so perhaps he's beginning to round into form. His only trip to Las Vegas for this event came in 2005 when he tied for 39th.

Padraig Harrington shot a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in his second round of the Barracuda Championship, but it was worth seven points.

Ah, the beauty of Modified Stableford scoring. Harrington squared two double bogeys -- it's the worse any golfer can pencil in this week -- while picking off an eagle and four birdies. Tacked onto his 10-point opener and the Irishman has 17 at the midpoint, nine back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He arrived in Reno ranked 189th in the FedExCup standings and 186th in earnings, so he needs a huge push over these last three weeks to secure status for 2014-15. Harrington ranks 36th all-time, so his last resort would be a burn a career earnings exemption, but he's only 42 years of age. No doubt he'll be strapped in for the Tour Finals if he finds himself in that series later this month.

Padraig Harrington returns to Royal Liverpool for The Open Championship.

The Irishman missed the cut here in 2006 immediately before he went on a run of winning back-to-back Claret Jugs. He hasn't cracked the top 35 since those wins, so it's inaccurate to refer to him as a horse for links layouts, but his recent form is encouraging. He tied for 14th in The Irish Open and shared 27th in the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open with a MC at the Alstom Open de France mixed in. He could be a sneaky play in deeper formats.

Padraig Harrington backed up his opening 68 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 to post 5-under 135, coming to rest seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It's always encouraging when a guy that hasn't made any noise finds a groove where he's done so before. In his second round at TPC Southwind, he went 6-for-6 in scrambling but three-putted the par-3 fourth green from 22'7" for bogey. Otherwise, he rode the shoulders of four short-range birdies to secure his second red number. Harrington opened his last start on the PGA TOUR (Byron Nelson) with three rounds in the 60s before closing with a 74 to finish T22. Since, he made the cut at the BMW PGA Championship, but didn't factor.

Padraig Harrington opened the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-under-par 36-32=68, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee today. Lift, clean and place in preferred lies is in play today with the threat of inclement weather this afternoon, not that that mattered much to Harrington. He landed only nine greens in regulation, but limited the damage to two early bogeys (Nos. 11 and 12), the first via a three-putt from just inside 16 feet on the par 3. Elsewhere, he circled four birdies, including three straight immediately after the turn. Two of his birdies on the day stretched just outside 11 feet, but the highlight of the round was an 11-yard hole-out from in front of the green at 1. Harrington has a decent record at TPC Southwind and he's coming off his only top 25 on the PGA TOUR in nearly one year, so it's not terribly surprising that he capitalized today despite his long-term fade.

Padraig Harrington coasted to a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Irishman squared just one bogey in his third trip around Las Colinas this week. He stood over 14 par-breaker opportunities and converted on five of them. Most notable was his 11'3" birdie putt on the par-3 13th hole. Harrington sits at 8-under 202 after three rounds and is great position to secure his first top 10 of the year.
