Coming to the par-5 17th, the defending Open champion was two clear of clubhouse leader Ian Poulter and three ahead of playing partner Greg Norman.

When Harrington pulled out a wood for his second shot, 249 yards from the pin, Norman whispered to his caddie, “Hey, we can still win this.” But Padraig played a perfect shot, turning from left to right and chasing up the green to set up an eagle three and a second Open title.
