After two 4-putts, Harrington still not upset
Despite three birdies, Harrington shot 4-over 74.
"I had two 4-putts and a 3-putt, two stubbed chips from the edge of the green," Harrington said. "That's a lot of shots. I can't remember ever having a 4 putt and I had two of them today."
And yet, Harrington had no issues with the Olympic Club.
"The course is super. Brilliant. Actually, not difficult either. It's nicely setup. Very playable. Yeah. It was it's very nice. Nice setup. It's ideal. It just goes to show what the firm greens scare the life out of professional golfers. So it's excellent."
Asked if there were any positives to take from the day, Harrington said: "No. I need an afternoon of putting."
