Harrington leaves impression on Tiger


CHASKA, Minn. – Lot of talk heading into the 91st PGA Championship at Hazeltine National about the greatest shots of all time.

If Tiger Woods’ vote counts for anything, he says his 3-iron approach shot from the fairway bunker at the 18th hole during the second round of the 2002 PGA at Hazeltine is on the highlight reel. On Friday the world No. 1 had a front-row seat to another “Greatest” candidate.

From 301 yards, with an uphill lie in the fairway bunker at the 15th hole, Woods’ playing companion Padraig Harrington roped a 3-wood to 12 feet for eagle.

“Worth the price of admission,” Wood smiled, and the Irishman didn’t miss an opening: “I asked him for 50 bucks.”

Harrington may have given up ground to Woods on Day 2, but he impressed him, and that’s hard to do.
