Padraig Harrington

Ayrshire, Scotland

Q. Your thoughts on two very contrasting rounds over the last two days in two very different contrasting weather conditions?
PÁDRAIG HARRINGTON: Yeah, sure was. I played the same all the time. I didn't change; it was the weather.

You know, I just didn't get the breaks yesterday. I got plenty of them today. That's the difference in the scoring, that's all. I holed three nice par putts today, and yesterday, I missed a lot of short ones.

Q. Is that the frustration of this game?
PÁDRAIG HARRINGTON: You know what, it's not frustrating at this stage. It's the way the game is. If you play it as long as I do and you don't get to grips with it like that, you're going to end up in a home, not in a -- yeah, you're going to be struggling.

So it is what it is. As much as you might want to label it frustrating, I think I got past that ten years ago.

Q. With The Open Championship at Birkdale coming up next week, what positives do you take into that tournament from this week?
PÁDRAIG HARRINGTON: I played nicely. Try not to read -- the cliché of doing it day-by-day. So if I shot a bad number today, I wasn't going to go into The Open any less happy than if I shot a good number. That's the attitude I have to take. I'm sure deep down it has an effect, but I have to get over that and not let it be; not let each round's score dictate how I feel about my golf.

Q. How much are you looking to going back to Birkdale, a place that holds such fantastic memories for you?
PÁDRAIG HARRINGTON: Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to my golf at the moment. That's the main thing.
