Padraig Harrington


Q. It was fine, wasn't it?

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Yeah, more than unlikely. I was never very confident over the ball. I snuck in there nicely and was 2 under par after 13 holes. Obviously had a bit of a blip in the next two holes.

Q. (Inaudible).

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Nice try, but I hit it through the fairway on the left. I tried to hit sand wedge out of a bad lie and obviously hit it over the green, just between the heavy rough and the short rough and chipped it to 15 feet and missed it.

Next hole I was a very easy pin position and I tried to get it up there because if you're hitting a wedge in there it really is with the backstop a very good birdie chance. I hit it in the bunker, hit right from there just short of the green and hit a terrible chip right out of the rough to about 15 feet, just missed it.

Next hole hit the wrong club off the tee. I hit 5 wood straight down the middle but it just ran through. It's not a fairway to miss. It's probably it's crucial to that one get it on the fairway. Second shot hit it left in the rough and had a very bad lie. They've regrown in the rough and I didn't get it up the hill at the last, and then I duffed my chip. Then I hit a nice pitch to about six feet and missed the putt.

Q. (Inaudible).

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: Well, I was very easily 2 under par at that stage. Even know I didn't feel my preparation hasn't been that good and I didn't feel very good over the ball. I was really sticking it in there and making it as easy as possible for me. It's going nicely.

I had a six footer on 13 to go 3 under par.

Q. Did that upset you or not?

PADRAIG HARRINGTON: No, not at all. I hit a hybrid club I carry. It was a very, very nice shot, nice chance, six footer. It didn't really bother me at all. I should have gotten a sand wedge on the green out of the rough on the next hole. I should have played a bit more defensive off the next tee, and I definitely should have played more defensive off the tee beyond that.
