Closing eagle gives Harrington 64, lead at Shaw

News

CALGARY, Alberta — Padraig Harrington made a long eagle putt on the final hole Friday for a 6-under 64 that gave him a 1-shot lead over Kirk Triplett in the Shaw Charity Classic.

Harrington matched his lowest score of the year on the PGA Tour Champions, and it was his best opening round of the season on the 50-and-older circuit. The 50-year-old Irishman is second in the Charles Schwab Cup standings, though still well behind Steven Alker.

Harrington already has won once this year at the U.S. Senior Open. He has not been outside the top seven on the leaderboard over his past eight rounds.

Triplett stated on the back nine at Canyon Meadows and was 3 under through two holes after his birdie-eagle start.

He was a runner-up at the Shaw Charity Classic four years ago.

Paul Goydos and Robert Karlsson both shot 66, while Matt Gogel and John Huston were another shot behind at 67.
