VOLVO GOLF CHAMPIONS


January 21, 2012


Padraig Harrington


GEORGE, SOUTH AFRICA

P√ĀDRAIG HARRINGTON:¬†¬† It's probably not a great day, getting a little ahead of myself but it would be nice to make an eagle, if I hit a good drive, I'll be hitting iron into the pin or if I hit this 3‑wood or 5‑wood, I would only be playing for a four.
Not a bad effort.¬† It would have been nice, as I said, when I was‑‑ I thought the leader was 11.¬† It was one of those situations of, I felt if I could make eagle, I wouldn't be too far back come tomorrow.¬† Obviously as always, you misunderstand the situation even at this stage.¬† Three shots isn't too much.

Q.  Certainly not around here.
P√ĀDRAIG HARRINGTON:¬† No.¬† Those bunkers, like the 10th hole, hit a nice drive and I had a chip shot to the green.¬† Today I hit a nice drive and I had a 5‑iron to the green, and it wasn't like the wind was that much stronger and it was in a slightly different direction.¬† Probably quarter down, quarter in today.¬† Amazing how many bunkers we played over yesterday that we were not able to reach today.

Q.  The range is 69 to 90 so far today.
P√ĀDRAIG HARRINGTON:¬† I didn't really want to know‑‑ the 69, you know, obviously I worked hard all the way through.¬† When I had to chip‑and‑putt, I chipped and putted and made a disappointing bogey on 13 after hitting a lovely pitch in there.¬† But besides, that I made the most of my day mostly.¬† Certainly a lot of tough holes out there.¬† So, yeah, you have to hit it well off the tee.

Q.  Positive week regardless of tomorrow.
P√ĀDRAIG HARRINGTON:¬† I can see, like there's a glaring part of my game missing.¬† And it's actually all the way through my game.¬† My routine is very‑‑ it's not flowing.¬† So I can see that I was trying to get it to flow today.¬† It was better with the flow today.¬† It was the first day I didn't really realise, didn't think too much about it.¬† Today I was trying to make it work.¬† But you would obviously prefer to be in a day one situation where even if it's broken, you're not aware it's broken.
Going forward, I would be quite positive I can fix that, and I do see it as something, the more think about it, the more it's kind of let me down the last year or so.  Feeling positive going forward with it.
