Watch: Harrington's birdie at 17
Padraig Harrington birdies the 17th hole Thursday with a putt from 74 feet, 11 inches.
Padraig Harrington’s 74-foot, 11-inch birdie putt that he rolled in at the 17th hole en route to breaking the course record with a 61 in Thursday’s first round of the Transitions Championship was the longest of his PGA TOUR career.
"I would like to tell you it was funneling right up the green and couldn't go anywhere else,” Harrington said about the putt. “But certainly the last 15 feet it was right in the middle of the hole. That's a bonus obviously.”
Here are the longest putts he’s made on TOUR:
