Harrington watch

Padraig Harrington can boost his
earnings for 2003 to over 4 million
euro – without having to win this
week’s EMC2 World Cup with Paul
McGinley in Mexico.

The World Cup winners will split a
cheque for a cool $1 million US
dollars but Harrington can break the
€ 4 million euro mark if they finish in
the top three.

With his win in the Target World
Challenge on Sunday Harrington has
won three times this year and been
second just once.

He also played a vital role in
Europe’s Ryder Cup win – beating
Mark Calcavecchia by five and four in
the singles.

Since he turned professional in
1995, Harrington has improved his
Order of Merit position every year, bar
one, and risen to eighth in Official
Golf World Rankings.

He has been second 22 times and
won seven times in all with four of
those wins coming in the past 13
months – the 2001 Volvo Masters,
the 2002 Dunhill Links Trophy, the
BMW Asian Open in Taiwan last
month and last weekend’s win in

But finishing second is not
something that worries Harrington

He has said: “If there is a saving
grace in finishing second it is that I
am learning, learning. So long as I
am learning, I am OK. If you put your
neck on the block often you will suffer
failure often. I would rather be
consistently in there than one of
those erratic players who come from
nowhere to win tournaments every
so often.´
