Padraig Harrington


Q. I asked the boys in the booth if they'd play a little chorus of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." Your third shot at 18 had to bring a smile to your face.

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Yeah, I got lucky there. I didn't hit a good shot and it bounced forward and to the side, and it trickled down to three feet. It was nice to get a break like that. Sometimes you hit good shots and you don't get the breaks, so I'm going to take that very nicely.

Q. Kind of a strange round for you; you weren't really comfortable out there. You just mentioned you were fighting a hook all the way. What can you do to rectify that?

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: I don't know. I just have to continue to do what I did today and try and draw the ball; I'm hitting a hook. To just try and cut every shot I play on the golf course is a little bit awkward because on 18 there I had a left to right sidehill lie in the fairway, and I can't miss the green right, so it's not the easiest shot to try and hit a cut. So I tried to draw, and all of a sudden I hit that big hook. I've got to put up with the fact I'm going to hit a few of those shots.

Q. You just got one shot closer to Michael Campbell, who unfortunately missed his par putt for a 62. He did shoot 63. You even have to be impressed with that.

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: I think that ties my course record here. I think I shot 63 here. I'm pretty sure that's the course record, so he tied it. He must be a good player (laughter).
