DUBAI DUTY FREE IRISH OPEN HOSTED BY THE RORY FOUNDATION


May 30, 2015


Padraig Harrington


NEWCASTLE, NORTHERN IRELAND

Q.ツ Not the day you were hoping for.ツ Tell us about the round.
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ Didn't get off to a great start.ツ A couple offer rabbit shots, I didn't really recover them around the green.ツ I struggled around the greens all day and on a tough day like this, you have to be knocking the putts in and getting up‑and‑down to keep the momentum in the round and I just didn't do that today.ツ That's the way it is.

Q.ツ What was today like compared to the first to days?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ A little bit disappointed because when I came up here six weeks ago we played in the exact same wind today so that should have been to my liking today.ツ I had no problems with the conditions.ツ I wanted a good test out there, as I said, I couldn't get any momentum in the round.ツ I just missed too many putts.

Q.ツ How would you sum up the first three rounds?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ Obviously it's all gone now, so enjoy tomorrow, that's it.

Q.ツ Finishing on a high is the aim now?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ Everybody plays hard.ツ You never know when a good round will bring some momentum to you.ツ You never know when a good shot can spark you off.ツ I'll be looking forward to tomorrow and hoping that I play well to, as I said, create a bit of confidence going forward.

Q.ツ You must be hurting after being in a good position after nine holes yesterday?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ That's the way it goes.ツ Disappointed but not for a lack of trying.ツ Nothing I can do about it.
I didn't play great.ツ I would have needed a good day on the greens to get some momentum.ツ That's quite important if things are not going 100 percent for you, you've got to hole the putts and I didn't do that today.ツ You hole a few putts, keeps you in things and you play better because of it.ツ That's the nature of the game.

Q.ツ You were still there after you birdied the 7th?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ From hitting a lot of fairways, it was a bad double program at 8.ツ That really was a bit of an issue.ツ It was a simple shot played up the left and get on with it .ツ The double‑bogey and then the 3‑putts on 11, 13 and 15, having played all the holes well‑‑ I wasn't shooting 65.

Q.ツ Could you believe the scoring given the conditions?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ I think the golf course can give it up but it is a very impressive score all the same.ツ You have to go ask do it and fair play to the lads who performed well.

Q.ツ Sテクren Kjeldsen, what do you thinkof his play?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ This is a perfect golf course for him.ツ This really suits somebody like Sテクren who is not going to hit the ball too high.ツ He's a clever player, can work his way around there.ツ So, yeah, I think he's enjoying these conditions.
