Inside the numbers: Padraig Harrington

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

PALM HARBOR, Fla. -- When Padraig Harrington followed his course-record 61 with a 73 on Friday, it was hardly the first time a player had gone low in one round only to shoot something average or even struggle the next.

Harrington’s 61 was the fifth 61 on the PGA TOUR this season alone. But as we’ve seen each time, it’s hard to back up a round like that.

Here’s a look at how the other four players performed in the round following their 61:

Player Tournament Score
Ryan Moore Humana Challenge 61 (Round 2), 75 (Round 3)
Robert Garrigus Humana Challenge 61 (Round 3), 68 (Round 4)
Charlie Wi AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 61 (Round 1), 69 (Round 2)
Brian Harman The Honda Classic 61 (Round 2), 69 (Round 3)

The bigger problem for Harrington might be that he hasn’t been very good on the weekend this season. He ranks 154th in third-round scoring average at 72.67 and 156th in final-round scoring average at 73.
