Padraig Harrington finished runner-up at the WGC-Bridgestone
Invitational in preparation for his title defense at this week's PGA
Championship. Hear what he had to say after the round.
Paddy showed great class in the way he handled the loss, as well as Tiger who showed great support for a fellow competitor. They know the rules and owned up, never complained once. Wish it could be the same for most players who are "out of position".Congrats to both
I like Padraig Harrington but I'm glad he finally got called for his slow play. I remember in a Ryder Cup in a singles match he had 125 yards to the hole and walked all the way to the green and back and then took his sweet time in selecting a club to hit.
It would have been great to see Paddy win but it was an awesome battle until the end. Well, maybe until the 16th.
Tough loss for Paddy. I don't think being put on the clock helped him at all.
It's a shame we did not see a great match til the end (18th), there needs to be a grey area with this rule, because the crowds that follow Tiger are huge, it just takes time for the crowds to settle before the players can hit, I would bet that most Tournament that Tiger is in the last group, on the last day, in a tight match, that they are out of so called position
would have been nice to see someone beat Tiger, and would have been even better for him to prove that he can win even when Tiger is in the field.
no excuses, some times things just happen that way.
alotta class. can't wait to see how thursday and friday go paired up with tiger. i hope the pairing could go all the way to sunday with them in the final pairing.
what a match that would be!!!
Really enjoyed watching them both play, great rounds (except for Paddy's 8). Tiger remains at the top, but Harrington definitely gave him a run for his money this weekend.
