For Harrington There’s Somthing Special About Scotland In October.

For Padraig Harrington there’s something about playing well in Scotland in October.

Maybe it’s been rugged-up under four layers battling the Scottish autumn elements.

In fact, Harrington captured two of his 15 European Tour victories in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

Only last fortnight, he finished T9th in the ASI Scottish Open and now after just two rounds of the inaugural Scottish Championship he’s produced his lowest opening 36 holes on the European since a year ago while competing in the 2019 Alfred Dunhill Links.

Padraig Harrington again find delight in playing golf in October in Scotland

Harrington added a second round three-under par 69 to his opening 66 to be in the comfort of the clubhouse sharing third place at nine-under on the Torrance course at the Fairmont Resort.

The current World No. 342 grabbed four birdies and dropping one shot to be trailing just three shots behind England’s Matt Wallace who has rounds of 65 and 67 to lead the field at 11-under par.

Wallace, and with Belfast bagman Dave McNeilly calling the shots, managed six birdies and dropped just one shot for his only bogey over two rounds.

Frenchman Adrien Saddier, and with a pair of 67s, is in second place at 10-under par.

I think today I didn’t play as well as yesterday – expectations,” said Harrington.

“I hit the ball really well off the tee yesterday. I’m putting very well at the moment so my expectations were high today.

“With high expectations you get a little bit tight on yourself at times. So I didn’t play quite as well today, three under is a nice return and hopefully I won’t be too far off the lead.”
