Watch: Outrageous Shots Like This Suggest Padraig Harrington Is Right Back In Form

Padraig Harrington enjoyed a remarkable weekend, after the three-time major winner was right in contention in the Turkish Open.

Harrington, 46, has struggled in recent times, but was right in the mix to claim the title heading down the back nine as he looked to see off Justin Rose.

However, the Englishman held his nerve to win by one shot – two clear of Harrington.

Nonetheless, there were plenty of positives for the Irishman, after an impressive showing throughout the weekend.

Arguably his moment of the tournament came on the tenth hole today, as he led the round. Lining up his fourth shot on a par four, and not yet on the green, there was big pressure for him to find the hole in two.

However, he went one better, nailing the pin, showing just what he is capable of, and sending a warning around the tour that he is still capable of turning it on.

A remarkable shot! It’s great to see Harrington back golfing at his best.

One thing many viewers picked up on was the fact that he was handed the putter by his caddie as he set off towards the green, despite the fact that the ball was already in the hole!
