LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England (AP) – Some players crumble when they arrive at the majors. For Padraig Harrington, it’s usually just the opposite.
The amiable Irishman with two British Open titles and a U.S. PGA Championship already to his name has been saving his best form this year for the sport’s biggest tournaments.
An eighth-place ﬁnish at the Masters was followed last month by a fourth at the U.S. Open.
With his putting foibles seemingly rectiﬁed and his swing improved under a new coach, Harrington is climbing slowly back up the rankings.
