Harrington fills Tiger void with PGA win
Everyone wondered who would fill the void with Tiger Woods recuperating and out of the last two majors.
The answer is pretty clear.
Padraig Harrington overcame a three-shot deficit, coolly rolling in a 10-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and 15-footer for par on 18, to pull away from Sergio Garcia and Ben Curtis and win the PGA Championship on Sunday.
In a fitting follow to winning his second straight British Open three weeks ago, the Irishman became only the fourth player—and first European—to win the claret jug and the Wanamaker Trophy in the same year. He also became the first European to win the PGA Championship since Tommy Armour of Scotland in 1930.
