Pádraig is off to good start


PÁdraig Harrington opened his Wells Fargo campaign with a two under par round of 70.

Four birdies and two bogeys sprinkled among 12 pars left the 43-year-old five shots behind early pace-setter Robert Streb.

Always with a positive attitude, Harrington was adamant earlier this week that his chipping and bunker play was "getting back to the good old days".

And yesterday was like Harrington in his prime as he scrambled superbly, going around in just 25 putts, including 11 one-putts.
