Harrington opens with three bogeys

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Padraig Harrington missed just two greens in regulation during his opening-round 64 that gave him the first-round lead at The Barclays.

He’s already missed three greens in Friday’s second round … in his first three holes. As a result, he’s dropping fast on the leaderboard.

Harrington, starting his second round off the 10th tee, posted three consecutive bogeys to start his day and is now at 4 under, four shots off the lead currently held by Bob Estes, who is 8 under for the tournament with one hole left to play Friday.

Harrington’s approach at the 10th hole found the rough near the greenside bunker, and he couldn’t convert the 16-foot par putt.

A wayward tee shot at the 11th found a fairway bunker, and his second shot found the greenside bunker.

Another poor tee shot at the 12th landed in the native area and his second shot came up short of the green.
