Harrington lurking in 'Woods'
August 11, 2008 - Neil Rudel
You could see Padraig Harrington's victory in the PGA coming.
Harrington was a couple of strokes behind Ben Curtis and Sergio Garcia as the final major of the year hit the back nine Sunday.
And sure enough, Garcia once again could not close it out, and Harrington, closed for his third major championship in the last six.
When Tiger Woods does return, you get the idea that the mental toughness of this guy -- who often wears short sleeves in chilly weather to exemplify it -- will make provide far more formidable competition than Phil Mickelson, Garcia and, before them, David Duval.
