EXPERIENCE COUNTS FOR HARRINGTON

Could the seven year wait finally be over?

Two-time Open Championship winner Padraig Harrington’s lowest round in a Major shot him into contention for another Claret Jug, and he believes his experience could be a significant factor on the final day at St Andrews.

The Irishman carded a seven under par 65 to leap to ten under and create a realistic chance of capturing his fourth Major as the tournament heads for Monday finish.

His previous best single-round score was back-to-back 66s on the weekend to win the 2008 US PGA, having also made that score at The Open way back in 2001 at Lytham.

Harrington’s first win on a major Tour in seven years came at March’s Honda Classic, which also needed an extra day, but it is his memories of getting the job done on the final day of a Major that he will be looking to use on Monday.

“I always wanted to shoot 65 on the Sunday of an Open - obviously there’s another round to go tomorrow,” he joked.

“I’ll be certainly telling myself that I know what I’m doing and I’ve done it before and I’ll be using it to help myself for sure, having done it twice before.
