IRELAND'S Padraig Harrington is one of several Masters nearly-men who this week must adjust from the sublime challenge of Augusta National to the meticulous demands of Harbour Town Golf Links or Kuala Lumpur Country Club.
As Bubba Watson parades his new Green Jacket on America's celebrity chat show circuit, the US PGA Tour gets back to usual business in South Carolina today, where Harrington and world No 1 Luke Donald are prominent on the time sheet at the RBC Heritage.
If Augusta was a perfect fit for the unbridled power and glorious shot-making of 'Bubba Golf', Harbour Town is suited more to the cerebral game played by Donald or even his in-form fellow Englishman Brian Davis.
Harrington, meanwhile, should be able to build on his eighth place finish at the Masters, especially after once again finding faith and confidence in his putting.
After an angst-ridden year on the greens, Harrington reveals that a pre-Masters session with mind guru Dr Bob Rotella flicked the on-switch.
"I've been saying for a good while now that I couldn't be happier with my long game," Harrington explained in his weekly blog.
"Up to now I have been struggling with my putting, and this impacted on my results.
"At the Masters, I continued to play very well, and while I still missed a lot of chances during the week, I felt much better about my putting.
"The work I did with Bob Rotella at the start of the week helped me so much.
"At no stage during at Augusta did I feel bad about a putt either before or after it. I was much more accepting and this helped no end.
"It's hard to believe something so simple could make such a difference. I'd got so caught up in the result (rather than the quality of the stroke) that I was eating myself up over it."
Harrington hasn't played Heritage since 2001, but Donald and Davis both have shown their prowess on the strategically challenging Pete Dye creation.
Indeed, after recent close calls at Harbour Town, they are likely to feel due a little rub of the green there.
Donald was beaten in sudden death by Brandt Snedeker last April after a stunning final-round 64 by the American, while Davis famously called a penalty against himself during the 2010 play-off, effectively ceding the title to Jim Furyk.
The Florida-based Londoner didn't make it to the Masters but showed the form of his life with a couple of fourth-place finishes at Honda and Bay Hill. Donald only really got going at Augusta during his final-round 68.
Masters runner-up Louis Oosthuizen and South African compatriot Charl Schwartzel, winner of the Green Jacket in 2011, are likely to have as much difficulty adjusting to the slow and grainy greens in Kuala Lumpur as jet lag following their madcap 23-hour journey across 13 time zones from Augusta to the Malaysian Open.
Yet Oosthuizen is swinging the club so well at present that he should manage the tiny, tight fairways at Kuala Lumpur on auto-pilot.
Damien McGrane and Gareth Maybin didn't make the timesheet in this event, which is co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour -- part of the price they pay for their lowly finish on the European money list last season.
