Bad day at of­fice for Har­ring­ton as his put­ter fails to work


The Herald - Herald Sport - - Formula One -


PADRAIG HAR­RING­TON was a dozen shots worse off in the Tran­si­tions Cham­pi­onship in Florida yes­ter­day, af­ter shoot­ing a two-over-par 73 to drop back to eight un­der and out of the lead only a day af­ter set­ting the course record at the Cop­per­head Course at In­nis­brook.

Un­like his open­ing round when he made al­most ev­ery­thing with his put­ter, in­clud­ing a 75-footer at one point, he made very lit­tle yes­ter­day, miss­ing four putts from in­side 10 feet. In all, Har­ring­ton took 33 putts.

Amer­i­can Ja­son Dufner moved two shots ahead of Har­ring­ton and into the out­right lead, one stroke ahead of com­pa­triot Wil­liam Mcgirt, who still has to fin­ish his sec­ond round, af­ter shoot­ing a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive round of 66

Justin Rose is as con­fi­dent as he ever has been and with has good rea­son. In his last two starts he tied for fifth at The Honda Clas­sic and of course won the World Golf Cham­pi­onships-cadil­lac Cham­pi­onship.

Rose is in con­tention again this week. Through his first eight holes in his sec­ond round, he is two un­der, and for the week is six un­der, just four strokes off the lead.

Luke Don­ald is on an ag­gre­gate of 135 af­ter re­turn­ing a 68 to fol­low his first-round 67.
