Three time major champion, Padraig Harrington emerged from a playoff with PGA Tour Rookie Daniel Berger (DryJoys Tour) to win the Honda Classic!
Falling behind early in the final round, Padraig birdied five of his final eight holes to reach six under par and match Berger's clubhouse lead.
On the first playoff hole both players split with par. On the next, Harrington stiffed his approach to within a few feet and Berger's found water. Harrington made a routine par for the victory.
This is Harrington's first PGA Tour victory since the 2008 PGA Championship. This is Padraig's sixth PGA Tour victory. His first PGA Tour win was at the Honda Classic in 2005.
Padraig Harrington relied on the XPS-1 golf shoe and Pure Touch Limited golf glove.

The FJ Tour Insider is back and this week we are covering the Irish Open. The strong field and major-esque venue has created much buzz around this event, leading to the first ever sell out of a non-major European Tour event! With the British Open just around the corner, many FJ players are using this as a tune up for next month's major at Royal Lytham and St. Annes. FJ Ambassadors, Rory McIlroy and Padraig Harrington are looking to give their thousands of local followers a good showing this week, hopefully with a win!
It should be a great week of golf on the rustic Northern Irish coastline.
