Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington can get up-and-down from anywhere.

The Dubliner is in fine form at the Turkish Airlines Open after an opening round of 65 yesterday.

He managed to avoid a bogey on his third hole today in the most awkward of circumstances. His approach shot to the green was off-target and his ball nestled up against a tree.

With a restricted backswing and difficult lie, an up-and-down looked highly unlikely but Harrington produced an audacious chip and saved par.
