How Sweet It Was


Harrington on nine.

Say what you want about Norman, he's still...Norman. Whatever it was that enabled him to return to form enabled him to return to form on the final eighteen too, where he has always been a suspect closer. But Newlywed Norman lipped three long putts today (wind) in addition to hitting almost a dozen terrible up-and-downs, and...

And nothing. If Harrington hits that long approach on 17, which he has twice in four days, he wins, regardless. He did, and he did. You can tell he would have played it regardless because he played it when it could only cause him trouble, even potentially costing him the tournament. Dropping a five wood down right on the skirt of a bunker from 250 yards away and then rolling straight up to the hole, it was really unbelievable, not even Tiger tries that with a three shot lead.
