Watch: Padraig Harrington hits incredible recovery shot from knees at Texas Children’s Houston Open

HOUSTON — Padraig Harrington won last week’s Champions Tour event at the Hoag Classic in California. This week, the 52-year-old came to Memorial Park Golf Course to play on the PGA Tour at the Texas Children’s Houston Open.

He’s already hit his best shot of the week, coming in the first round.

After his tee shot went miles left on the par-5 16th hole, Harrington had no choice but to get on his knees to attempt his second shot. And he did so successfully, hitting it back into the fairway.

He then found the fringe right of the green and was able to get up and in for par.


Always entertaining, Paddy.

Through 16 holes, the Irishman sat even par for the tournament.
