Padraig Harrington


Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツツ A bit of overeagerness, maybe overconfidence, I don't know.ツ Certainly wasn't a great start.ツ Obviously put you on the back foot.

Q.ツ When is the last time you left three in a bunker‑‑
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ I don't think I ever did.ツ I don't think I ever did.ツ I was confident I was going to get it up‑and‑down and confident off the tee, as well.
As I said, it was a bit of overeagerness early on in the round; maybe I should have been more patient.

Q.ツ Did the course itself live up to your expectations after you said you were coming back here a lot happier with it?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ I think it lived up to my expectations, yes.

Q.ツ Greens okay?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON: ツExactly as I expected.

Q.ツ What were you hitting off the tee there at 2?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ 9‑iron.ツ It's a pretty straightforward shot.ツ Just didn't quite get it.

Q.ツ Just a yard or two, isn't it?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ Yeah, but as I said, you kind of know that when you're hitting at it.ツ Just didn't quite get it.ツ I think it was an easy enough pin.ツ I think I would normally go at a pin like that, maybe in hindsight, maybe it's the second hole of the day, maybe I should have been playing safer, who knows, but I'd like to now.

Q.ツ Does that make you feel more cautious about where you're hitting shots following that?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ I think I didn't get into a rhythm very often in the round.ツ At times, I hit good shots at times, but I was aiming maybe too safe after that.ツ You would be amazed how that has a knock‑on effect, definitely.ツ Just seems to put you behind the 8‑ball straightaway.

Q.ツ What was the initial lie like?
Pテ.RAIG HARRINGTON:ツ It was good enough that I thought I could get it up‑and‑down.ツ If it was a bad lie‑‑ the last one was in one of my divots, so I got that one out.ツ That's what I was trying to do.ツ The first two, I was trying to get them up‑and‑down.
